Ph2 dash centre console removal

Hi all,

I have stripped down the engine and interior on my GTV V6 so I can start giving her a full revamp.

Engine has a few bodges but no more than I usually find when I get an Alfa, removed the covers and even the sills are solid.

However I can not for the life of me figure out how to get the dash centre console out! I have the lower console out and the silver facia out with all the heater/clocks removed but I want to remove the black 'leather effect' dash centre console. It's the part that hold the silver facia and the three heater vents.

Removed the two screws at the bottom but I can not find another fixing and its solid as a rock! Any ideas?

Cheers

Hi Paul,

Thank you for the reply, I saw that post but he has taken out less than I have so far.

I want to remove the black surround which holds the three heater vents, the bit that is left after the silver panel has been removed.

Cheers

IIRC you cannot remove the black part (with 3 x heater vents) of the centre console until you have removed the whole dashboard, then you can get in from the rear. There are some ridiculous small captive screws not accessible from the front of the dash. I tried and failed.

Hi Matt,

Many thanks, I had another look and bling feel behind and came to the conclusion you have just confirmed.

Mmmhhhh, was going to get the lower centre console and that part covered in real leather... Is it worth that much grief? One to consider

Ha, I was trying to do the same. I've saved a whole spare dash for a future winter project.

I'm just getting the last bits back on to my V6 refurb - good luck with yours, it's been a mammoth task.

Not Happy

Thanks... just saved me 60 for a leather one I saw on ebay that I thought would look nice in mine but waaaaaaay too much effort if the dash needs to come out.
