Center Console

Hi. I just put one of the short consoles in my truck. I had the Fx4 full length console in there. When I took my old one out all i had to do was take out the bolts. I did not have to pull it out at all, it just kind of slid out. Now I have those two yellow/white clip things where the front of the console is. I was just wondering if anyone who has a short console knows what I'm talking about. If so, what do I put in those? The front of my console (where the cup holders are) is kind of floating around free.

Also, since I had the full length console I'm missing the other two pieces. The ash tray/airbag switch. I also need the cup holder and **** tray that go underneath the airbag switch. Does anyone have either of these pieces? I can't find them anywhere and any junk yards are pretty far. Thought I might be able to save some time if someone on here has those pieces. Thanks so much!

I am not sure what clips you are talking about. If you take a picture I might be able to help you out.

Also if you still from the cover for the sub woofer I would be willing to trade you the floor cup holder/tray and the cubby hole with air bag switch holder.

I went outside and took it apart again. Still can't figure out what these are for. But the front end can move about an inch either way so I'm assuming that this is why.

Oh, and I already have someone interested in the whole console. He's just waiting for me to clean it and ship it. Sorry.

Before I put a full-length Explorer console in my '98, I had a short console from the factory. On mine, those white things were used for screwing down the front of the short console. The screws were located underneath the cupholders on the console, and they would get screwed directly down into the white things.

Joe is right pull the cup holder off and you will see 2 holes in the bottom of the console were you can run a 1" sheet metal screw through to hold the front of the console in place.

OK but if for some reason the person doesn't take I will.

The console is the same as the ones that can be found in first explorers. They're a dime a dozen. Here is one
96 1996 Ford Explorer OEM Center Console, Gray LKQ:eBay Motors (item 190331875043 end time Sep-29-09 10:58:02 PDT)

That one is exactly like the one thats in my FX4 except mine has a vinyl armrest instead of cloth.
