Does the lid shut ok without the little mini tray? It seems like the hinge have allowance for the extra tray. I just got my GC Saturday and didn't realize it had this stupid thing until I got it home. I know yours is a 4X2, but any idea how much more difficult it would be to remove the button panel for the 4x4?

Arm rest shuts just fine, I assume the 4x4 panel still pops out but I have no way of verifying.

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

Thanks for the walk through! Just finished swapping the CD player for the console on my 2014 4wd summit. Much better!

On the 4wd, the terrain selector is held in by 4 metal clips that latch. You cannot just pry the selector out willy-nilly per the manual or you will bend the clips and it will rattle, so you need to compress each clip located about an inch in from each corner. Better to just skip removing the terrain selector and just remove the shifter and shifter trim and get it out of your way. You have plenty of wire to reach under the panel and disconnect the terrain selector.

I heard the shifter can throw a code if removed so I was concerned about that. I removed it and left the battery applied so I could move my seats but did not start the engine. I disconnected the battery before re-installing the shifter and didn't get any codes thrown after that.

Also, watch out for the short plasticalignment pins on the console lid, it is easy to break one off if you try to wrestle it before lifting it up. (Two pins next to the group of three screws.

My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

Never did get the bin light to work but then I never tried again. lol The bin is great even without the light. If I need more light I just turn on the overhead for a minute. It's so great to have room in the armrest instead of
a CD that I would never use. When I'm not using SXM I'm using the SD Card or my usb thumb drive that is the size of my thumbnail for more of my own personnel music.
