overhead courtesy light console

Hi Gang,

cmax 2009 titanium.

I want to remove the complete overhead console for access so that I can fit an lcd parking assist screen behind the flap where the dome rear mirror lives (a)

Other projects seem to show these already dropped.

I tried tugging at this today without success. I also tried to drop the submarine fitting. It unclipped and dropped about half/inch all the way around but jams up after this.

Looking at the photo, how do I,

1/ drop the whole fitting

2/ drop the submarine housing.

Are there any screws hidden or is everything clipped.

Cheers gang

Hi, gently prise out the Interior light ( very small flat screwdriver either side ) and there is a couple of screws holding the whole thing up.

Good luck!

Mr Rugby - could you let us have details of this mod when completed?

Thanks,

Had my interior light out on Friday, there is a little metal tag in the middle at the rear of the lamp ( towards Mirror ) right where you cant get to, a small screwdriver in there and prise it out. Previously mentioned method also works as I was not aware of metal tag until I had lamp in my hands!
