From grey and capyoda, just pm them.


Anyways, thanks for the DIY neonimpact. I finally installed the revo, the hardest part was removing the second cable.

I'm not trying to get too much off topic but I have to ask if anybody knows whether the 02 center console will fit in my 01, from the part around the e-brake all the way to the piece that has the accessory outlet/cigarette lighter.

I'm wondering the same thing for my 03 EX. To access the back of the HU do I have to pull out the conter console, or is there another (easier) way to get back there?

I have to attach the Aux adapter to that back of the radio for my iPod.

Thanks

Pop the cover that has the shift boot and ring on it.
Pull up hard and all 4-6 snaps will come up with it..
PULL HARD!!

then grab the piece where the foglight button would have gone, and pull straight out.

Then just go from underneath, and move about.

I have an automatic. Would I just pop off the panel around the shifter for the same effect?

I got it in just now.

It was pretty much the same. Popped off the top ring and had to pull HARD on the lower panel (like you said ). Then I just popped off the cig panel and reached up to plug it in.

Thanks for the help, I'll post pics when I can

Re: DIY: 2003 Center Console Removal

Sorry for necroing this thread but im doing this today in an 05' civic lx 5 speed. This thread looks like its supposed to have pictures. I have the clips out up front and the 4 screws out from the rear. There was one screw under the rubber mat below the arm rest compartment. I can't see what else needs to be removed.
if anyone sees this could you please help. Thank you.

Re: DIY: 2003 Center Console Removal

I'm not quite familiar with removing the 7thgen center consoles with the armrest, but I'll give it a shot at helping by using my experience with the 01-02 center console (non-armrest version) and the diagram from Majestic Honda (shown below)





So, you have clips #32 (qty 2 - both sides), screws #29 (qty 2 - both sides), and.. I'm not sure which other 2 screws you removed. Looks like #27 (qty 2) need to be removed, assuming the center console mounting points didn't change when they outfitted the civic with an armrest center console. I'm gonna include the drawing for the 01-02 center console below to show you what I'm referencing.





On my 2002, screws #23 (qty 2 - both sides), #26 (qty 2), and clips #21 (qty 2 - both sides) needed to be removed (as well as the shift ****) in order to take the center console out.

Hopefully that helps a bit.

edit: just realized those numbers referenced above are used multiple times in various locations. Updated to highlight the screws in question

Re: DIY: 2003 Center Console Removal

that's so when you get to the track you can rip it out and instantly gain 10 HP


OP did you manage to get it out yet?
might be some screws under the shifter trim as well, been a while since i pulled one out
