    Just wondering if there is a way to tighten up a loose center console?:confused:

    I have a 2000 Ext. Cab Prerunner with bucket seats and the console moves a bit from side to side.

    Any suggestions...(yes I did a search but only found info on 2001-04 consoles).:)

    there are factory service manuals available online as well. Search for your year on google. the FSM will show how to tighten everything.

    Fixed it! 10mm socket on the very loose bolts inside the console and Phillips screwdriver for the 4 bolts forward and back of the gear shifter.

    No hidden clips or broken fasteners....niiiiiiiccccce.

    Found a nice site to download a manual.

    Thanks for your help!
