Climate Controls + 2-DIN - Cup Holders = / != Centre Console Delete?

Recommended Posts

I have something in mind that I can't see if anyone else has done before or not.  But maybe some have and failed and I should learn from their mistakes...

 

I want to delete the centre console because of my height and knees and comfort.

 

Also, I dislike the flimsy cupholder, wonder of engineering that it is.

 

I am thinking I can remove the cupholders and just fit the climate controls and a double-din head unit in the space there.  There will be some hacking at the plastic and some hand made metal brackets.

 

Has anyone heard of this being done before?  Am I on a fool's errand?

Thanks for the link, I am aware of the console conversion kits.

 

My question is about fitting the climate controls AND a double din media head unit in the dashboard with the cupholders removed.

 

Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Nah Cap'n,  man up, delete the console  and go for a nice and easy Continental single DIN radio and cup holders that clip onto the forward door pocket.......

Yes I think thats the one , I think he fitted a new head unit install kit that helped with making it all fit with a stanatd look . Been a while since i watched it.

Yeah, I did watch that.  It was very informative but didn't cover the specifics I'm after.  Thanks anyway for responding!

I’m in a similar dilemma sir.
Trying to resolve where I could relocate the HVAC . Have access to 3D print.  however, so far nothing resolved, as only logical though inconvenient location for HVAC is setback under dash where the delete panel is.

If it’s about reverse camera ? could man up put on chaps ala @TwoHeadsTas go with sgl Din unit/ reverse mirror/HVAC combo and delete  centre console . Something I might consider.

picking up on last comments @hugh @DJM on the 964 thread .. 996 sans HVAC might not be as enticing as a ballsy 964. P.a never thought 964 a/c that bad.

Going to measure the harness with only the vents and see if I can jerry rig something to hold it all in, at least tight enough for the kind of girls I would like to date.

It's about the Android Auto and the Waze with the speed camera warnings and the like.

I already got one.  I was one of the original glassholes.  Makes very good POV driving videos, but taking your kids to the park is problematic.

I promise, once the Wuhan Spicy Lung scourge is defeated, beers can be shared. A drive along the Hume would do me well, or at least bed in the new brakes being downhill to Canberra from Sydney.

Would you be able to fit the the HVAC unit into the centre console storage unit between the seats? 

If it fits inside that space surely you could run the wires between the centre tunnel and the centre console into the storage container.  It would be tucked away, but still easily accessible.

It's a great idea and it would fit but the wire bundle is not long enough I have found today.  And there are A LOT of tiny wires to patch if I wanted to extend it.

Centre console is out and I have spent the better part of today figuring out what the previous head unit installer had done.  There were so many wires patched unnecessarily and a really scrappy RCA and power lead to the centre console for a digital radio unit.
