Hi all
I have been trying to remove a blank switch panel on my centre consul, I have an 05 auto ZD3.0

on the right hand side of the centre consul I have one antenna switch and 0ne power/hold switch. I would like to remove the blank panels along side the current switches to install a switch for a work light which will just sit above spare tyre on barn doors

do the panels pull out or do I have to cut the top of the panel to remove it

I would appreciate any help before I go crazy with hammer and chisel

X2... haven't had experience with the 05 Auto specifically but on all other 'Trolls I've done the blanks come out from the back most are clips some (07's) have small self tappers holding the blanks in place MY05 could be the same... pull the console out and it should be easy peasy.

Yep, console/dash facia has to come out so you can access the blanks from the back. Then the screws can be removed and the blanks will come out.

Cheers

Make sure you find the console screw that hides under the ashtray ;) and then the screws each side of the console near the floor.

Nah leave the clips and leather alone, just unscrew gear knob, and remove console with boots in one piece.

I've done the same thing myself, the Narva "3 way" switch (can't remember the part number) will just slot straight in to the blank space, no modifications are needed. The centre panel will come off as single piece with the lever boots as well just remove/unscrew the knobs, it is just a matter of maneuvering the panel out the levers need to be in the forward positions.

There is enough play in the leather encloser to unscrew and lift the console up and slide it back to get to the dash screws without totally removing the console.
