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.

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

Bumping this in case anyone else wants to see it. If I can convince my wife not to kill me for ripping apart our brand new Jeep, I'm going to get that damn CD player out! I hate that both Jeeps I was considering buying had them. A friend might be doing the same thing on his.

My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

I replaced mine, ordered it online from U. S. Still with postage and dollar less than half the price the Australian jeep dealer wanted for one

Best thing I've done, that CD player drove me nuts everytime I lifted the lid

I want to do mine this weekend but I'm a little hesitant. All those plastic clips and pins..

I thought I read someplace how to remove the shifter knob but I can't find it in this thread. I'd rather not remove the selector knob as well.

How do I remove it Xion?

How long should it take to start to finish?

Thanks in advance

Try WK2jeeps.com. The site has PDF that shows how to remove the entire interior basically.

Thanks dcorn, yeah they have a wealth of info there. A little bit on the vague side. But still better then going in blind. Think I might stop and pick up the trim stick that they mention for removing trim pieces C-4755. Seems to be a universal little tool when you need to remove something from the interior.


Thanks

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

Thanks to the pic's and info from members here, I've hit the go button on a bin for my Laredo. I included two oil filters too. Sourced them from; Mopar Parts Overstock - Shop OEM Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep Parts Online

Dealer charged me $82 Aussie for the filter this week.

Freight was $68 for the lot.

Looking forward to the bin and being able to use the under arm rest for "real" storage.

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

Yes, next project for me. Mine came with the Cd as well, the summit's have a 2nd storage area which requires a different top piece as well, not sure if the overlands without Cd have it but it was kindda handy
