DIY: Overhead Console Replacement
I replaced the front overhead console in my daughter's M6 today. I broke it back in Dec while trying to remove it to find power for the auto dimming mirror I was installing. I will say, this is one of the most fragile pieces of plastic I've seen in any car. Even gentle prying will break it. Good luck finding a used one. I had to fork out $90 for a new one.
To get it out, remove the two torx head screws behind the sunglasses holder. Then, there are two tabs on either side, about one inch in from the back. Press those in, and it drops right out. The electrical connectors are a pain - why do they always place the little tab you're supposed to press on the side of the connector you can't see? Big fingers don't help.
