    Right, first question on my new 100, does the cool box have an on/off switch so it will not have a constant drain on the battery if the vehicle is not being used for a while? it will be left in my garage frequently without use. :think:

    It works when the air con is on Chas, it doesn't run from the battery.

    There are screws either side of the centre console that are hidden by the front seats, you will need to move the seats back and forward to see them, one of them each side you prob need a right angled screw driver, there also screws behind the cup holder at the rear of the console, I think you may have to remove screws at the sides further tward the gear leavers, so in other words you will need to remove the centre console.

    The CD changer is held in with four screws/bolts, be careful when working around the cooler it's self, don't damage the pipe work or the cooler coil. Very expensive if you slip with a driver.

    I have not done this job my self, but I have just had a look at mine, so there could be more steps involved, I don't think it will be a difficult job but might be a little time consuming.

    Hope this will be a little help,

    Good Luck.

    I have the standard cubby box with cd changer in the centre console - no doubt the internal layout of the console is different to accommodate the cooler box workings, but when I fitted the USB outlet I just pulled the panel around the rear heater controls at the back of the centre console outwards to gain access - dont recall any screws but may be mistaken. In my case there was just enough space to fit the outlet without removing the cd changer or changing anything in the console. I say just enough as the clip just above the outlet wont quite go in, as you can see below.

    As I said, I was only looking at my config, for a start my rear heater/cooling controls are above the rear passengers head, not in the back of the console.

    The console is not a self contained box, that is screwed to the floor, it'a made of component parts.

    Here is a blown up diagram of the console, as well as a standard diagram to reference.

    You can't just lift the CD changer out, you need to get to the fixings at the bottom that hold the CD changer in place.

    No problem Jibbarjabber. In fact, from the diagram, the back panel is held in place by two screws behind the cupholder. Simple enough. That is all I need to remove to install the USB outlet.
