    Try taking it down and inspect it. If I remember correctly there is a screw inside the sunglass holder and then pull down on the front. Thats how mine came down but I he the temp gauge so yours might be a little different.

    I was always wondering what the technical term was for the overhead console. I now know it is called an "Interior Light Thing" :D


    Yup, you have a missing or loose clip. Should be able to pull straight down to remove the left side clip to inspect. I hate those damn clips. I always feel like I am going to break one...and usually do!

    I took mine down to see if I was pre wired for compass and temp. I know the probe is already installed. But letting you know that the screw is in the glass holder then pull down on the front of the console. When I did that the clips that hold the front of the unit were left up there. I had to pull the clips out and reconnect them to the front tabs of the console. Once you get it down you will see what I mean. You should have 2 metal clips on the plastic tabs at the front of the console and the rear part is held up by the screw in the glass holder
