Hey I'm new here and a new Cougar owner. Im 16 and just got a 99 Cougar, so far I really like it and plan to do some stuff to it but right now I'm gonna keep it lookin pretty stock cause Im still paying for it. But one thing I can't stand is the center console, I've been browsing the boards as of late and found out that the 01 02 cougars have a different center console and I was wondering if it's possible to switch out mine with a new one and if so how difficult it will be. Thanks.

If you have an MTX, the swap is quick and easy - under 30 minutes. If you have an ATX, then it takes a little more, because you need to remove the shifter first (plenty of how tos on the board), but it still can be done in under 2 hours.

2 Hours Jason?! Nah... I've taken mine out in under an hour, in fact I'm gonna do it tommorow to redo some things.

The tricky part Soulhunter is finding a newer style console... good luck! We're all looking for them! If you find some, let us know.

Ron, I can pull mine in 10 minutes (I never screwed it back in :biggrin: ), but I was giving the n00b a good timeframe for the first time they start experimenting with ripping apart the interior :tongue:

More importantly, if you do swap it out...I WANT your original center console. I need a 99 model console.

Actually they started putting that console in the cars in 2000. :)

BTW, Trevor (FastCougar) has all the parts you need to do the swap on a page somewhere... PM him if you want.
