Pull up shift boot
pull up shift surround
unbolt front two ashtray bolts
unbolt triangle handles and spread them apart
ashtray should pull right out
I've been searching (as best as I could while at work) for a quick write-up or how-to remove the coin tray in front of the shifter under the AC controls. Can anyone please point me in the right direction as I need to get this thing removed to mount my Autopilot controller?
There used to be a DIY for the ashtray delete- funny it never made it into the DIY thread.
It was a LONG time ago, and I did it- and you don't have to remove/loosen the 'triangle handle' doofers in order to remove it. At least I don't remember doing that...

I've been meaning to get the ashtray delete, but only seem to find it on OEMplus and it's always on back order. Any other place to get this piece?
Seeing no one has pointed it out, AllThingsGetto's car, is a 2010, it does not have an ashtray. Just storage/coin tray contraption.
Maybe it does not pop out like the 2006-2008's?
