#8 of 16 Access to center floor console
Dec 08, 2007 (10:35 am)
I dropped a credit card between the clam shell door on the console box and the console frame itself. Anyone know as easy way to gain access to the inside the console unit? I can't get the box out and tried to get into the back of the unit but to no avail. It is a 2002 Highlander

You might find some dash diagrams in one of the repair links in the Online Repair Manuals guide.
I have access to the ARRC Auto Repair reference center info online through my public library and it has exploded dash diagrams (searching for heater core info is a good shortcut for finding dash diagrams, and the few I've seen include center consoles). Of course, the '02 database for the Highlander flipped me to RAV4 diagrams.... figures.
Maybe someone has a factory manual with a diagram they can scan and post in their CarSpace album?

Has anyone "customized" the empty space (with a power outlet) under the front center console of their Highlander? I added a non skid liner so items would not slide around. But would like to know how others use that awkward space.

I'm in process now of customizing the center console on a 2006 Highlander. Likely will mount a XM radio atop the butt box snaking the power wire through it to the power accessory outlet below in the space under the center console. I want to avoid any hidden wires or other important items if I drill through the bottom of the butt box holder in order to run the power chord back up through to the XM radio. Looking to hide all the wires for a professional job, but is difficult without a diagram of the console design. Highlander has few places to add satellite radio, my Subaru is better in that regard. I want to snake the antenna wire through the console up behind the dash. Also thinking about adding a GPS navigation box to the flip down sunglass holder in ceiling. Again, sure would be good to know where everything is before I start ripping. Just started my search for diagrams, got some, but poor quality. Anyone knowing a good source for this, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Hi - My wife just did the same thing in our 06 Highlander. I'm trying to figure out how to get the cup holder out to get her card out. It's currently between the bottom of the cup holder and the console frame.
Were you ever able to figure out how to get the cup holder out?
#15 of 16 2007 Toyota Highlander center console

I am looking to remove center console in 2007 Toyota Highlander and to find a shorter aftermarket or Toyota part to cover shifter that extends from dash. I have heard that Canadian models had shorter console, but talked to a Toyota dealership today. The guy wasn't too knowledgeable and couldn't confirm. Called Canadian dealership and they were no help.
Anyone know where I can get a shorter console so you can move to the back seat.
