Default How do I remove the overhead console?

I have a 2009 Accord.

I want to hard-wire my GPS into the overhead console.

I have opened the sunglass door and removed the 2 visible screws. But nothing is loose and it's still tight.

I'm afraid to pull any harder.

Anybody know where I go next?

Thanks.

Got it.

I searched this forum, and found a thread showing how to put brighter bulbs in the map-lights. This showed 2 more hidden screws.

I pulled them, and the whole unit dropped down.

I found a hot lead for the map-light, tapped into that, found a ground, and everything was good. Tucked the extra wire away, and threaded the lead to the GPS down the mirror mount.

Very tidy install, no wires across the dash, and frees up the lighter socket for the radar detector.

I'm really happy with how this worked out.

Wow that sounds pretty snazzy. If you can you should post some pictures and/or do a DIY for it. That's something that I could see being useful to quite a few people!

There are 2 other screws next to the lights. You have to pull the covers off.
