Default How To Fix Center Console?: Pic Included

My center console lid has come off. It does not seem broken. It is just unattached. How do I re-attach it? I have included pics.

Takes practice. And patience. Bend the springs in like where they want to be and get them in position. Push down at the spring location. It takes a while to learn the whack a mole!!

ok i did it

the trick was to balance the lid evenly after turning the springs inwards and then smacking it down by the spring area dead in the center.

Angry Same problem...

Except my console top is still attached on the passengers side. When I go to close it, the slider on the driver side sticks out. Any help on this? I'm new to the forum, as I've just purchased my first SLK. This is an annoying little problem!!!

Miles,
Unfortunately, in return for the joy of getting to drive these wonderful machines, our German friends have provided us with a few little annoying quirks. The center console you have found. The "cupholder" is another one, otherwise known as the "I want to destroy my headunit" module. Then there's the ""you better know your headlight switch settings by heart, because you sure can't see it" one. Let's see - then there's the "you can't get into your car to jump off a dead battery without compromising the window seals" feature. The "eye poker" radio antenna is also standard equipment. The "we can't understand why you would want a glove compartment, so that's where we put the CD Changer" is optional.

And I'm sure that there are more. The good news is that they won't matter a hill of beans compared to the complete joy of taking your SLK through a set of S curves in the mountains.

Welcome to the forum.

This is what AJ9079 & I did after reading all Jeffs (and others) advice.

Tuck the offending slider(s) under as you close the lid making sure the lid is central when closed (the slider will slide on its base as you close the lid) and then give the lid a good sharp smack down at the back of the lid on the offending slider side.
This will locate the rear pin.

Worked for me after nothing else did.

Having a similar problem..after the Mrs got a little overzealous opening the bottom (pulling up) then slamming it down while trying to open it sideways..

http://www.slkworld.com/new-members-...em-solved.html

this is another informative link..

As above, one lift spring is extended (the other is now broken btw) however the opening slider/buttons appears to be jammed in from the driver side and the rear hinge pin on the driver's side is extended and fixed (the forward pin is spring loaded out but will move).

So JB...am I all set to whack a mole (assuming I get the lift arm tucked in)?

Yup! Whack a mole it is unless you get the whole bottom of the console replaced
