I have been working on cars my whole life and run an auto auction.

I don't sit behind a desk and I certainly have a lot of mechanical experience. I was looking for (hidden bolts or screws) that can be seen. Obviously because you sit behind a computer all day and look at pictures you assume that your instruction are self explanatory. You pictures don't even match my car. Left bracket, what do I have to remove to get the bracket out? Lower bolt is obvious, upper cant be seen so obviously something has to be removed? What? Center console, I have removed all screws I can see, but the rear of the console wont lift off, hidden bolts? Nothing in view? I ask your company for information so I don't spend time taking things off I don't need to.

Most of our Experts are working technicians that basically donate their time considering how much it actually costs to have a mechanic even look at your car. We are here to help people in need. We understand your frustration when diagrams for your year/make/model don't match what you are looking at. We use the most current technical repair information and schematics available and sometimes they are not exact. Hidden bolts under the dash can be difficult to locate and sometimes require the removal of the center console and parts of the dash to gain access to them. Maybe you could post a picture of what you have done so far so our experts can provide a solution. Our satisfaction guarantee is unconditional, we will be glad to refund your donation if we can't get it figured out for you.
