There are a lot of storage spaces inside your car so that you can bring with you all of your important things. One such space is the center console, which can be found right in the middle of your car's interior, on the space between the driver's seat and the front passenger's seat. This little box allows you to store some important things in a location that you can easily reach even while driving. A lid goes on top of this box to ensure that everything inside is kept safe and secure. The lid also makes sure that whatever is inside remains inside and does not go loose even during heavy braking or when making sudden turns. A console latch makes sure that this lid remains in place at all times. As you close it, the latch locks the lid into place. Like most parts, however, this latch will eventually wear out and will have to be replaced. A worn out or broken console latch is not something that you want to have. It could lead to some unexpected injuries if the lid itself or whatever it is that you stored in the bin flies out and hits you or any of your passengers during sudden braking or turning. It really is important to secure everything that is inside your car, and the console latch is one thing that helps you do that.

How to Replace a Broken Console Latch

Spare change, house keys, and flash drives-drop any of these things in your car and they can be a huge pain in the neck to find. Remember, the rule of thumb is that the smaller the item, the easier it is to lose it. That's why we recommend making good use of your ride's storage spaces, particularly the center console. The center console lets you store your valuables in a safe and accessible location. That way, you won't have to worry about lost change or keys. Now, if a broken console latch is what's stopping you from using your center console, then we can help you with that problem too. To change your broken console latch, just follow the instructions listed below.

Difficulty level: Easy

Tools needed:

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Replacement console latch
  • A clean piece of cloth or paper

Step 1: Open your center console and locate the screws at the back of the lid.

Step 2: Using your screwdriver, remove the screws on the lid. Be sure to set these screws aside because you'll need them later. We recommend putting the screws on a clean piece of cloth or paper. This should make them easily visible when it's time to reinstall the center console lid.

Step 3: Find the center console latch, and remove the screws holding the latch in place.

Step 4: Take your new console latch and align its holes to those of the center console.

Step 5: Hold the new latch and carefully screw it into place.

Step 6: Take your console lid and reinstall it. Make sure the screws are tightly installed.

Step 7: Check for loose screws by repeatedly opening and closing your center console lid.

Step 8: If you find any loose screws, tighten them using your Phillips screwdriver.

The good thing about replacing a center console latch is that you don't have to be a seasoned DIYer to do it. In fact, even with zero experience, you can install a replacement latch without any difficulty!
