    Hi All,

    Quick question.. In this photo: [​IMG]

    Infront of the cup holders, below the shifter bezel piece is that little rectangular three slot coin holder thingy. Any ideas how to remove it at all? I wanna mount my sub remote down there :p

    Take the whole center console out and have a look. There are a few screws in the storage bin behind cup holders...and also 2 grommets on the sides of it in the foot wells. the whole thing should then lift up from the back.

    Havnt removed the coin thing before...but i might be screwed/clipped in underneath so this is your best bet.

    Hey that's my center console pic lol. Where'd you find it?

    Yeah you can remove the cup holders but they come in one piece with the coin slot.
    I have an Evo 8 cup holder part without the coin slot, it has the on/off switch for the intercooler or something but it's removable and larger than the coin slot. Let me know if your interested

    I think it clips or screws in from underneath. pull the centre console out and take a look.
    there are 2 screws in inside the back end usually under the rubber mat and the front it held by clips.
    it is easy to pull out. if you need photos it will have to wait till I get home from work.

    Cheers

    This is what I mean about the Evo cupholder with the larger hole for a switch instead of coin slot

    I had that on my lancer CE coupe as well, the square is for a not a on off switch but for a push button switch for the intercooler spray that jets water out onto the intercooler

    Sweet. Ill see how things go. Looking at the size of the bass remote vs the coinslot they look like they may be a near perfect match so fingers crossed

    the remote is this:
