Does anybody know how to replace the lid on the center console box in front of the shifter, just need to replace the front lid not the whole box, please shed some light before I brake it.
Thank you

Have you managed to remove it? If not, maybe this will be helpful.

The lid is locked from the upper side as well as from the bottom side as you can see. I tried to push the upper locks firstly, however, they are pretty solid. So I managed to get the lid off the box by pushing the bottom locks without any damage since it seems this side is much more flexible.

Installation of the new lid is in the reverse order
