Removing A Wrangler (TJ) Center Floor Console


Removing A Wrangler (TJ) Center Floor Console
October 2004

The following images document the removal of the center floor console of a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ Automatic.


STEP 1

We started by removing the first screw, located in the front cup holder.




STEP 2

We then removed two screws located in the center console storage compartment.




STEP 3

Then we removed the screws at the based of the center console.  We slid/collapsed the front seats forward to access them.




STEP 4

We then pried out the display of the automatic shifter with a flat screw driver.




STEP 5

We also popped out the airbag panel that sits in front of the automatic shifter.




STEP 6

Before we removed the center console, we put engaed the e-brake, put the transmission in 4-low, and removed the automatic shifter handle. This helped with being up to simply pull up on the console assembly and slide it up and out of the area.

The shifter T-handle is shown still attached in this picture. To remove it, we simply pulled up very hard and it popped off. If we left the shifter T-handle on, it's possible to remove the console, but it takes time to get the angles correct.  We re-installed the shfiter T-handle by placing it on the shifter stem and pressing down.




STEP 7

This image shows the center console removed.



STEP 8
