1996 Cutlass Console Lid Removal

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to remove a console lid for the 1995-1996-1997 Cutlass without breaking anything? I have a black one in mint condition that I'd like to install in place of my beige one but I can't get the one on the car out. It's held on by 2 ear shaped clips that look like they could break easily and it's unlikely the top piece of the lid can be unscrewed as the screw in the back doesn't have enough clearance to get any kind of screwdriver in there. 

Thanks

Unscrew the one hinge at the back of the console.

Pry the console apart far enough to clear the pins on the hinge. Catch the two pieces that might fall that attach to the side.

Reverse for install. 

 

That is how I remove them in the junkyard. Never planned to re-install, but I have yet to break a console prying it apart.
