Putting this up as an easy cross reference to daveg's original thread about removing the console to repair one of the switches for the heated seats.http://www.antaraownersclub.com/foru...html?KW=#34911

UPDATE: Slide the double cup holder to the open position and you
will see a rubber mat at the bottom. Pull that out and you will uncover two off
10mm head bolts into the floor.
On the front inner wall of the box you will see a rubber
insert just above the 12v socket and mp3 connector. Pull that grommet out and
you will then uncover two more 10mm head bolts into the gear selector area.
Next, slide your front seats right back and raise them as
high as they will go which will uncover the two front 10mm bolts either side of
the centre console roughly in line with the beginning of the seat slider rail.
Lastly there are two bolts right at the back of the console so slide your front
seats right forward and you will get to them easier. Now slide the console back and unplug the electrical plug
from underneath the corresponding switch. There are two spring-loaded retaining
clips holding the switch into the chrome gear surround. Press these two spring
clips in together, pop the switch upwards and remove it.
