i am new here, well this is my first post that i wanted to share with all. it is about removing the 2nd row console in QX56/ARMADA, and replace it with a seat, so you have more space for family
well i have done the work on my QX56 and it went so very well, it is a 60 minutes job. i am not able to upload the pics so far, i will be back with the pics, for now here what i have done:
1- remove the console - un-plung the cup holder, then un-clip the console.
2- remove the console base - plastic base with 4 screws.
3- remove the steel plate under the base - 6 bolts, 4 bolts will be holding the plate, another 2 beneath it.
4- remove the 2 arm rests - the challenge is to remove the nuts that hold the arm rest, i have used ratchet rod and moved it up n down, forth n back
, and it did the work
5- install the new seat- 6 bolts
6- adjust the original seats so the new seat can fit in perfectly.
