Default center console rattling fix!!

for all you guys that have that annoying creaking and noise out of the console, i have the fix. after taking to the dealership twice only to be unsatisfied that it wasnt fixed or worse. i took it into my own hands, i went to lowes and bought 1/8 inch thick pipe wrap. i disassembled my entire console and found what the dealer attempted to fix which the tried to put double sided 3M tape under the chrome trim piece. i was taking the fix further than their lazy ass's. i cut the pipe wrap into small strips and squares and put it in between everything that touched. when i put back together i pressed on the console and no creaks or cracks. i took it down the roughest roads in my city and i came to the conclusion that i solved the problem with about 4 bucks of pipe insulation wrap and 1.5 hours of my time. i might be putting some of this stuff in my door panels next

It's not extremely hard to take it apart completely. Just be cautious when prying the cheap plastic apart. You will need to take the shift handle off. There are screws in the cupholders and trays.

+1 on pics. Mike's creaking with 480 miles on it. Annoying as hell!

I did this a while ago so I don't have any pics of taking the console apart, but I used EPDM door seals. Worked like a charm.
