View Full Version : Midden console

Hi there,
one question, in the middle of the console where the radio is at you can unscrew the whole panel where the radio, cd holder, ashtray and cigarette liter is at. Behind this panel there is a bar running from left to right. This is the bar where when you take the ashtray out you need to remove the screw if you want to take the panel out. Would I weaken the structure of the dash if I cut this bar? I want to remove this bar completely so I can put a radio down there. Any advice or info appreciated, TC

I honestly think you'd be totally fine. The dash isn't going to fall apart. I think that bar is there to just hold the console in place better.

I just saw that bar away today to fit my gauges in and the radio and I must that it sits quit stiff in there. But tommorow I'll fit some alu bar in there to hold it even tighter. Thnx man.
