    Removing interior

    How do you get the center consol out? I have all 5 bolts out. And it seems like theres a wire that connects to some random thing under the ashtray (ill probably cut that) and i have the shifter off. Cant seem to get it over the ebrake tho.

    And how do you get the backseat panel coat hangers off?

    And how did you remove the wire cluster under the passenger seat...it seems jammed. I got the driver side with no problem at all but dayumm the passengerside is stuck
    Help.

    1. I'll have to take a look at mine again but i think the ebrake has to be all the way up, the wire could be to your ashtray light, not sure though. post up pics if you can.

    2. on the front of it there should be a little flap that flips out to get to whats holding it. A pick or something of that nature should help you out.

    3. Can't help with that one, camaro doesn't have an electric passenger seat

    Some one did a write up for the center console removal somewhere. Brb.

    The additional wire, if it's the ash tray light, should be really small/skinny compared to most of the cars wiring.

    I've never removed the power seat stuff, can you snap a pic of the harness?

    1. The center console...I assume you mean the lower half if you are having issues with the e-brake. Pull the e-brake up all the way and you will have to pivot the console piece (pull the rear part up and slide the console piece back towards the rear). I cannot remember the exact number of bolts, but 5 sounds correct. If you are not able to move the console easily, then you have some more bolts to remove.
    Not sure what the wiring under the ashtray would be besides to a light bulb. Is it an A4 or m6? There should be enough slack to lift the console alittle to see where it goes to and remove it without cutting.

    2. To remove your coat hangers, you have to pull out the center piece (the square piece). There is a slot along the bottom, you can use a screwdriver to pry it out, then just pull straight back to remove the center piece. Then the hook portion should come out easily.

    3. Removing the wiring under the passenger side...Are you trying to remove the harness that is located beneath the carpet? If so, its easiest to remove the trim along the door sill and lift up the carpet. Follow the wiring towards the center console and you will see it held down by a square piece of black-rubberish tape. It then goes over the driveshaft tunnel (might have to loosen the airbag sensor and e-brake bolts to remove the wiring) and then it is held on by another piece of rubber tape on the driver's side.
    I just removed my wiring about a month ago, but sorry no pics of the wiring in the car.
    Here is a pick of the wiring harness removed and the bottom of the seats. The wiring harness is below the seats on the carpet. The seat with the black box (lumbar motor) is the passenger side seat.

    Exactly. I've always wanted to do it. I've seen it once before where someone cut out and welded in new sheet metal molded to match the drivers side

    LOL, I don't mind the hump, probably b/c I have NEVER ridden in the passenger side...

    I guess it's to late to suggest Dynamat sound proofing before you re-install the carpet.
