How to Remove a Console in a Dodge Chargerby Leonardo R. Grabkowski
All Dodge Charger trim levels have bucket seats with a floor mounted center console. This console wraps around the car's gear shift. It provides a cup holder and a storage compartment, as well as air vents for the rear passenger. If you want to modify the interior, you may want to remove the console. You may also want to remove the console to replace it with a new one if the console is damaged.
Open the console storage lid. Lift the rubber mat from the bottom of the compartment. Remove the three 8 millimeter bolts from the bottom of the compartment with a ratchet.
Remove the two screws from the panel surrounding the gear shift trim. Lift the trim upward to remove it; slide it over the gear shift knob.. Set it to the side.
Remove the three Phillips screws from the front part of the console. There is a screw on each side, and there is one beneath the gear shift panel you removed.
Push the console rearward gently and then lift it up. Underneath you'll see an electrical wire. This is the connection for the air vents on the back of the console.
Unplug the electrical wire and then lift the console out of the Charger.
