This is instructions to remove the Center Console.

First lift the armrest lid and remove all the Items stored in there. Next remove the lid that is in the bottom of the console.There is 2 screws in there.Either 2 8mm screws or 2 torxes 25 screws. Depends on the year. Then remove the front cubby in the console.There is 2 screws holding it in.One is in kind of under the lighter.The screws go from the front cubby to the console.The screws are t-25 screws.Pull the cubby out. Then look down towards the floor you will see 2 t-15 screws. Remove the 2 screws and unplug the 2 plugs.They are black and grey. Then grab and lift the console from the back and then slide it towards the back of the car and it will come out.


Sorry no pics I will try to find some and post them.

If you have anymore quiestions feel free to ask.

i have a bad master switch so pulled my console today. thanks for the help.

first, a comment. whoever's post i read before doing the removal suggested pulling the shift lever back some clicks to make room in there, make it easier to get things out. that helped.

then, two followup questions.

1. around the lighter, a little light came free (one of the wires was pink, if i remeember correctly, can't remember the other) when i pulled the console. where did it come from, where does it go back?

2. and this is more switch than console removal question, but maybe someone knows. how to disconnect the cap off the bottom of the switch, to access the wires going in so i can disconnect, hook up a new one?

thanks in advance for any help.

This is a general reply.

1. Look for its original mounting place. Or any sign of it being attached to the original piece.

2. Typically, you will need to pry it out slowly. A good bone-picker may be able to do the job well, with less scars. :)

oh sorry man, was in the kitchen and have one of the sous chefs reading out the questions to me. yeah, the trick is shift into neutral, pull down the little boot and pull up. remember straight up, if you do it on an angle you'll eff up the pnp switch, oh and if you have a sunroof, open it, not sure if you are going to go all king kong on this shifter knob when pulling.

It's designed to be a jack@#$ to replace. I can tell you right now, if you have a sunroof, you should thank yourself.

I last tried to do it to fit my wood-style knob.
And to cut the story short, the wood-knob is STILL in the original packing in the glove-box. I TEMPORARILY gave-up :haha: at the time, given the time constraints. And I DEFINITELY will attempt at it again. Just dont know when yet. The last time i unsuccessfully did it, my shoulders went stiff for a week!

well i didnt break the shaft....more like totaled the nob. :puzzled: lets say with every touch mywife reminded me of how much a idiotota i am for even atempting to change it. so i had to work it raw for the whole weekend. :blush: then monday i found out ther is no gettn around the official volvo parts, no apc here. so i go to the saloon, after lookin at several ugly cracked up replacements, we found a s70. poor s70 got t-boned and donated her heart and genitals :blownose: so for 35 bucks i got to be the first customer to have the privlage to buy the nob in part from the shaft, they never tried to seperate them before, i had to instruct the guy on how to get it off and how to not go launching out of this car that happen to be hidden on a rack five cars up! well in the end i ended up with a clean grey nob to match my tan and black interior..... the parts guy got a black eye..... he didnt listen. :haha: :lol: :clap: :thumbsup:
