Overhead console removal help

Recommended Posts

I have the 2020 2500 LTZ trim level with back slide window and without sunroof. So i want to remove the overhead console to install a panel of rocker switches posterior to the console right where the roof liner scoops down. I am stuck on how to remove the single button switch for the rear slide window. I tried what i know but don't want to break it. Please share if anyone have come across this. Thanks

Don't know how close u are to ur dealer but I would go to the parts Dept and have them look up the parts breakdown


I would think it's a pop on cover if it's not able to fit thru the hole but just my thought...


Also is there 2 more screws towards the windshield to mount the whole unit to the roof

I think he is wanting to do the same thing I am.


please post a write up on this or pictures when you get this done as the place they have put the upfitter switches seem like they needed to be put in a better location like they did in the 19 down models but maybe it is just me

Can’t get the trim piece off. The rear window switch is in the way. Anybody know if the rocker pops off of the switch?


You dont need to remove that trim piece. Take out the 2 torx screws closest to the windshield - deep in the holes. They are black. 
Once you take them out you can pry the console out from the side next to the Homelink buttons.

Kudos to Limelight! There are two T15 screws towards the mirror. They are way up in there. No need to remove the two T10 screws. Just pull the two T15 and then pull down.

Thank you mollerism and Limelight! I been away and couldn't check-in to my post. Yes, I want to do what you're doing mollerism. I didn't get the upfitter option but I don't like that they placed it to the left of the steering wheel. So I assume there should be plenty of space within that scoop to mount a large switch panel. I am certainly going to finish the project this weekend!

Added upper switch bank.

So if someone finds this post they can see the whole writeup

      Does anyone know how to add the digital key for the GMC Hummer EV? It says it should be in the app to select but I don't see it there. I followed the manual instructions as well but don't see the option for a digital key. If anyone knows or can help I would appreciate it.

      I have a 2018 Silverado. I replaced the battery last fall and each onstar diagnostic report afterwards warned that my battery was low. I took it to my Chevy dealer and they said the batter is fine. Is this a know issue?

      Hey there I have a
      2015 1500 5.3L LTZ Silverado 4WD (midnight edition)
      Anyway I was doing highway miles and got a console alert that oil level was low. Stopped at the auto parts store, added one quart, saw level was still low.. so I added a second quart which filled it up. I climbed under the engine in the parking lot, and took a peek at the oil pan. I noticed the gasket was all mushroomed out and there was oil pretty much caked everywhere lower than that seal.
      I took it to the dealership to get it repaired and the service manager told me the strangest stories.
      He said
      1) the lower oil pan is one time use
      2) the lower oil pan gasket is RTV
      3) the upper oil pan gasket was also leaking
      4) the crimp in the oil cooler line was leaking (didn't realize my engine even had an oil cooler!? Why would a light duty truck have this equipped?)
      He quoted $2000 for everything including 10% sales tax.
      Does this raise the alarm for anyone else here? I only saw oil from the lower gasket downward. The parts on rock auto are about $70. I think I'll have to do this one myself but would love some thoughts. 
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey guys, I have 2016 chevy silverado and it has a factory pinstrip on it. Does anyone know if this is painted on or just an adhesive decal? I want to remove it but don't want to screw up paint. Thanks

      I have a 21 Silverado that did not come with the garage door opener on the upper console. I wanted to know if anyone has added this option to their truck that did not have it? If so, was the wiring already present? What model did you order? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
