Want to hide a bunch of wiring and power packs for my strobes under my center console in my '02 Tahoe Z71. Any idea how to get it off? I opened up the CD holder flap and took out the two screws there, but that just lifts off the top part. Can't figure out how to get the "bottom" part that wraps around the sides vertically. I don't want to remove the true console that holds crap, rather merely the cover that hides the middle area by your feet and below the three cigarette lighter power sources.
Remove both front seats. Refer to Seat Replacement - Front Bucket in Seats. Remove the console bezel. Refer to Bezel Replacement - Floor Console .
Remove the two bolts (1) attaching the floor console to the front extension. Remove the bolt (2) attaching the floor console to the subwoofer box, if equipped. Lift up the console assembly from the floor studs and move rearwards to gain access to the wire harness connector. Disconnect the wire connector.
Remove the console assembly (3) from the vehicle.
Open the console lid. Remove the storage bin retaining screws (1). Lift the storage bin out partially. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
Lift the storage bin out of the console.
Remove the floor console upper bezel by firmly pulling on the corners. Important: The ashtray lid and cupholder lid must be in the open position.
Open the ashtray lid (1) and cupholder lid (2) Open the center console storage lid. Gently pull on the front part of the bezel to release the retainers. Pull out the bezel partially to gain access to the wire connectors. disconnect the wire connectors.
Remove the lower bezel from the center console.
Important: The ashtray lid (1) and cupholder lid (2) must be in the open position.
Open the ashtray lid (1) and cupholder lid (2). Partially install the bezel. Connect the electrical connectors. Install the lower bezel to the console. Push on the corners until the retainers are fully seated in place.
Align the locating pins (1) on the upper bezel.
Press in on the bezel until all retaining clips are fully seated.
Good instructions. That's actually for a 01/02 Denali and an 02 Escalade. The 02 Tahoe isn't half that involved. The bolts are at the very bottom of the console underneath a "flap". I believe there's 4 bolts...been a few years since I removed mine for a Denali console.
