Buy some spare glass for when you lose your cool.

Seriously though search the "how to" section, theres bound to be a helpful thread in there.

pull out your front ash tray, pull up the cover, undo the 3 screws. open your glove box undo the 3 screws pull down your fuse cover undo the 3 screws, ut ur fingers in the opening under your headunit and pull that out, then open ur centre console and undo the nuts, think there 10 or 12mm. pull it up and towards the back once it is back pull the radio surround off and lift the console out, after u unzip the handbrake boot

Don't try to pull up the shiny plastic cover, but the whole console. With my VR I lifted it up from the very back with my left hand (after taking out the screws in the bottom of the console), stabalised it with my right hand and gently pulled it backwards - I didn't have to use much force at all.

Make sure you have the gear in neutral and unzip the leather brake surround - allows it to slide backwards easier. Also, I didn't have to unplug anything.

Regards,

Mitch
