    Super Console Removal

    So this morning sitting at the Tim Hortons drive thru I sat some change on the Super Console sliding cover..........bad move, the money slid inside the console and every time I hit a bump I can hear the change rattle.

    I looked underneath and there is an LED light and another small hole. Anyone know how I can get inside to remove the money.

    It is not that I am cheap and want it back, I just hate rattles and squeaks!!

    The picture shows where it slid inside the Super Console.

    There is a access panel in that little cubby area, if you are on the drivers side go into the pass through cubby area it will be on your right also pull the drawer out will make it easier...

    I tried that, it only gave me access to underneath the cup holders and the rear compartment on the console. It looks like the only way is to try and remove the whole console.

    OK, there is two bolts on each side near the floor and a push pin rivet on each side under the hvac controls. Make sure that you unplug the power jack connectors...

    Same problem

    Is there a way to remove the top of the super console instead of removing the whole console? There is a seam that follows along on each side of the console that meets up in the rear of the super console above the drawer.

    I had the same problem with my 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T but with a driver's license. There is a way to remove the top of the super console instead of removing the whole console. There is a seam that follows along on each side of the console that meets up in the rear of the super console right above the drawer. I was able to pry (lack of a better term) lightly enough to where the clips popped loose. I carefully worked my hands along the seems forward toward the front while gently lifting from from the rear. Once I worked it all the way forward there are 2 clips that are a little stubborn so I used a plastic knife to pop them loose. Be carefull as there are wires that are attached.

    It may not be the right method but I took great care not to break anything as my wife would never let me live it down.

    I can confirm Bluedragn69_98's Method, My Wife lost her Debit Card the same way as OP. The Dodge Dealer wanted $900 to pull it apart. All I did was Pull out the Drawer, reach under and pull up firm but not hard and the entire top of the console came up, very easily actually. Found $0.45 and our Debit Card. No issues with re-installation, made sure wires did not get pinched. Started with Dash side and just snapped them back down.

    Total Time ~10 Minutes, 5 of which I stared at it prior to trying any dismantling.

    Yup, that is the way I took apart my console to replace the little change drawer with a DVD player. Just pry up on it starting from the back.
