Add one what? A center console? All New Beetles came with that. Maybe you're asking if you can add an armrest to a center console that didn't come with one?
I just bought a 2002 Beetle (manual) and my center console is a piece of crap. I need to replace the whole thing. I am having trouble finding the entire assembly. I saw that I can use a newer model console. I am new to all of this and I need as much assistance as possible.I think the best center console is 2006+. Which is plug and play, plus you can use your armrest (if you have one) e-brake handle and power sockets. All you would need is just the center console and the back cup holder. The center console run about $130 new and rear cup hold about $30.
I found a video on youtube of a guy swapping his O5 for O6 console.
he used this website, but when I log on there is two options. one that says a pre-06' conversion, and one that is just to replace it.
they both look the same, I cant see any difference but theres a huge proce difference.
anyone have any clue?
Well....no replacement this weekend. Apparently the 2006 console has no inventory in North America. So It'll be six to eight weeks before I see it.Reviving a dead thread. I'm going to be doing this change hopefully this weekend (if I get the parts in time). I'll document if anyone wants to follow along. I do have a convertible, so I will have to order an additional part (I don't need the console cover, I need the console trim panel that holds the power top switch).
Since nobody will be sitting in the back seat I probably won't buy the rear cupholder right now. The damn thing is $73.00 CAD (the entire console is $83.00 CAD!), so I can't justify that cost right now.
