: overhead console replacement?
03-02-2008, 01:22 AM
I have a 2007 SES, and the other day the sunglasses compartment of my overhead console broke. The latch snapped so the whole little door fell right off. So i'm thinking about getting a whole different overhead console, but is that possible?
anyone know where i can get a different or new overhead console? I know this my first post but...any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks! [pray]

im assuming you dont have the sunroof, i believe if you dont you have the sunglass holder standard on a ses and on lower models its just a maplight and with a sunroof you get just the sunlight

There may be holes for where the screws go in if you try to get a smaller one.
My overhead console did the same thing, right now I just have it taped shut.

Im sure you can order one. Mine did the same with the garage door opener compartment. I gorilla glued mine, but its probably not that hard to just pick up a new one. Go to the Hilbish Forum and ask for Mike. He'll hook you up.

Warranty? If not, then your options are Mike, ebay, or the BST section.

I know this thread is REALLY old but I have the same issue. The console itself is fine but the door for the sunglasses compartment snapped off. Anyone know where I can find a replacement?

Try looking around at a junkyard or something. It's just 4 (or 3?) phillips head screws that hold in the overhead console, so it's really easy to take out. You just have to remove the dome light to get to two behind there and the others are in the sunglasses and garage remote compartments.

Agree about the junk yard option, and now that you said that, I want a magic sunglass holder center console thingy in my car. Wonder if they're swappable in older gens?

The console should swap into an olde gen, but not without a little more work. If your console has the two holes behind the dome to mount and they match up anyway. You will need the metal bracket behind the headliner as well, which means you will have to take your headliner off at least partially to get the newer style console and bracket in

I know this thread is old, but I need to find the overhead garage door panel also, if anyone here has one, or maybe just the entire over head console if not just the panel

Hi, Is there anyone out there with an overhead console to spare or sell? I have a 2005 Focus and the plastic tabs broke off of both the garage door container and glasses container! Any help would be much appreciated as this ish is looking ghetto with the tape job...
