Default How do I remove overhead console ?

Hey guys ,

I have a 2008 Dodge Ram and I would like to hard wire my Garmin GPS up to the windsheild right above the rear veiw mirror ,there is the little console that has the outside temp and fuel readings and also the dome lights are up there

I figured that would be a good spot to wire in my GPS.

How do I get that down with out breaking any thing?

You can get it down by poping out the light lenses and behind it there are the screws that hold it into place!

Be gentle, you can break the little tabs on the lenses fairly easily. After that just pull down, there are 2 tabs at the front.

Rubberfrog has got a video and he removes the overhead console for the top cab lights.
