Six holes must be drilled into the vehicle to fit this console. The two front
mounting screws for the console are attached to the steel panel that is covered
by the spectacle holder / map light assembly. The four rear mounting screws for
the console are attached to the steel turret support that is covered by the interior
light. The interior light is re-mounted into a pre-cut hole in the base of the
console. All wiring can be installed without drilling any holes or cutting the
Step 1. Remove the spectacle holder
/ map light assembly and the interior light.
2. Hold the console into position to check the fit. Make sure you have received
the correct console, in good order, before cutting any holes in the console.
Step 3. Remove the speaker grill fitted to the front of the console.
4. If you are fitting the spectacle holder / map light assembly into the console,
position the assembly over the hole on the base of the console. Secure the assembly
in position by running a bead of silicon around the edge of the hole on the inside
of the console. The silicon must be dry before proceeding to step 5.
5. Fit your radio(s) and accessories into the console - see the "instructions
on installing a radio into a console" and the "radio fitting kit"
supplied with the console.
Step 6. Prepare the roof console to
accept the genuine interior light. Firstly, cut out the vinyl covering the hole
in the plywood for the interior light. The vinyl should be cut 6mm inside the
edge of the hole to allow a clear view when screwing the console into position.
This hole is covered by the base of the light, cutting this hole will not effect
the upholstered finish. Place the interior light on the base of the console, covering
the hole. Using the two 40mm long screws and the two small washers supplied with
the "console fitting kit", screw the interior light onto the console.
Remove the interior light from the console to allow access to the consoles rear
mounting screw holes. It is now a simple procedure to re-mount the interior light
after the console is fitted.
Install the wiring and aerial lead(s) before fitting the console. Be sure to leave
enough spare wire to reach down the seat. This will make it easier to connect
your wiring to the radio(s) before fitting the console. The excess wire can be
coiled up inside the console.
Place the console on the seat. Connect the wiring and check that the radio(s)
and accessories are operational before installing the console.
9. Make sure the interior light wire is long enough to reach past the base
of the console. A gentle pull will free up some extra length of this wire. In
most cases it will not be necessary to extend this wire. When fitting the console
make sure you don't sandwich this wire between the console's wooden spacer and
the steel turret support.
Step 10. Coil up any excess wire while lifting the console into position.
Thread the interior light wire down through the hole in the console's wooden spacer.
Press the console firmly onto the hood lining.
