    So today I finally had the time to fit my centre console and lower dash trims.....I know I have to purchase some additional screws and speed clips, however I can't seem to get the bottle cooler section to clip this what I need the speed clips for or am I missing something here....

    BTW the this thread was excellent to follow and made the whole process a lot easier.

    Have you trimmed the floor/tunnel to allow the base to sit fully down ?
    If you are referring to fitting the bottle cooler into the centre console trim then it’s just a bit of a bitch in general, even when factory fitted you need to give the rear of the bottle cooler a good shove backwards and push the locking clips out as you press back they never seem to engage on there own

    Hi @Pauly yeah I trimmed it down maybe a bit to much just to be on the safe side, it seems the bottle cooler wants to pop back out and I can't seem to get it to clip in. I'm a manual if that makes any difference as the gear cables seem very close.

    I found this to be the only part I couldn’t understand and therefore could not fit bottle cooler/holder.

    Also the compartment next to the gear lever, seem to be missing a rubber lining and some form of a blanking plate or perhaps a light fitting??? Can some one please post part numbers for these two please. (Refer to 2nd photo)

    Yes you did cut the wrong part. You need to remove the trim from under the carpet and trim that down....

    @Evgenij Webster you're after the thick plastic trim. Probably need something like a dremel. You're work isn't wanted I found trimming a small amount of the flooring made it easier to fit.
    You'll want to remove about 3 inches from the thick plastic. Best off pulling the flexible flooring away and offering the bottle cooler up and seeing what you need. You can always remove more...
