Re: Squeaky Center Console

Is it loose? Of so, pull the back panel off, the part under the rear AC vents, and tighten the 2 screws. I think they are T20 or something like that. I know you'll need a torque bit.

If that doesn't stop it, remove the shifter bezel trim, the chrome piece and the priece under that, then remove the rubber cup holder and the is a 10mm bolt under there. Tighten that.

Believe it or not, these are the only there things holding down the center console.

If that doesn't help, then it's gonna be the lid to the center console.

Re: Squeaky Center Console

Mine was squeaky as well. As mentioned above, the the two screws in the back were the problem with mine. There are two metal clips in the holes that the screws go in to that created the squeak. I used some foam tape to quiet them down. Problem solved.

It's easy. I've done this already. 15 minute job. And the hardest part is removing the stupid cup holder.

Re: Squeaky Center Console

I put some of those small round adhesive backed pads on the front underside of the lid, stopped the squeaks. they are available at walmart etc.
