Centre Console Lid Replacement

Post by amz2740 » Tue Jul 20, 2021 10:35 am

Hi all,

I’m currently in the process of buying a 2016 Qashqai Tekna model. Arrives in 2 weeks.

Whilst the condition is very good, I noticed some deep scratches on the lid of the centre console.

I was wondering if it’s possible to replace just the lid without having to change the whole centre console unit. Would this be possible with something similar to this for example

I'd have thought so but a local scrapyard might be cheaper - or even a reupholsterer?

I never took mine off so you'd have to see how much disassembly might be required.

Thank you, I will see if it’s possible to just remove the lid when it arrives then go from there. :) Didn’t think to check a scrap yard so may give that a go. Thanks

Are you buying it from a dealer, or private sale? If you are buying from a dealer, I'd ask them to replace it as part of the deal. It's worth trying.

From a dealer. I did mention it to them and they said they are unlikely to replace the whole thing but will do what they can to make them scratches look minimal. So will see how it looks I guess when I collect.

I replaced our centre console lid, really easy to do as only a few screws holding the hinge to the console. If you source one off FleaBay and no screws come with it, just use your originals.

This is exactly what I wanted to hear thank you! :) I was hoping it was possible without taking the whole console off but wasn’t sure as I didn’t check the screws when I went to view it. Thanks again

If I remember correctly, there is a small rectangular plastic cover that you pull off to gain access to three philips head screws, if you lift the armrest complete with the tray under it, you will see the cover that I'm referring to. In fact I remember that this cover was extremely loose and caused the odd rattle, cured it with a few strips of adhesive felt tape.
Usually lots on FleaBay, pick and choose the best if you're in no rush. I picked a leather one up along with four door cards with the leather armrests as an upgrade for Mrs Qashqai, I received a few 'beer tokens' for doing this too which I gladly redeemed :D
