I have a 92 300E. The center console piece (the part with the shift knob, window buttons, etc.) that is Zebrano has cracked with age. I have bought a new center console, but how do I remove the old one and install the new one? Thx

Pull up the carpet that is inside the recess behind the wood. There will be a screw there. Take it out and the wood will pull up.

I don't understand when you are referring to the carpet.... Where exactly is this carpet you are talking about?

It ought to be under the area where your armrest is, or where there ought to be an armrest (if you don't have an armrest).

USA MY '92 W124 vehicles were factory equipped with passenger side air bags in place of the previously standard glove box. To partially compensate for loss of the glove box, a locking storage box was situated in the center console (without a carpet trim piece). This box must be removed in order to access the gear selector surround wood trim's retaining screw.

The storage box's two retaining screws are easily visualized with the box's cover panel in the stored position. A small, ratcheting offset screwdriver (e.g., Sears Craftsman - < $9) will provide the speediest removal of the aft screw. With the screws out, the box is lifted vertically and removed. The gear selector surround wood trim is secured aft with one crosshead screw, located medially. The wood trim is then carefully lifted upwards, disconnecting the power mirror & window switches from their underlying connectors. If clearance with the ashtray's door trim is tight or if there is danger of scratching the new wood during installation, then remove the complete ashtray assembly: first, remove the ashtray insert and visualize two crosshead screws securing the ashtray assembly. Remove those screws and carefully withdraw the assembly; disconnect the power harness prior to full removal. Inspect and transfer switches to the new wood trim; new window switches are not expensive so if any of the existing are questionable, now is the time to renew them. Reassembly is simply the reversal of disassembly.

Thanks for the help. It looks great! However, the ashtray wood, the storage box wood and the wood that goes around the a/c unit etc. Is sunfaded from all of the past years. Now I think I am going to replace that wood as well! I wonder if parts shop can get it for me.. probably.
