Hi all,

New to these forums hoping that someone can help me find the answer too.

I have just purchased the Citroen c3 storage drawer & was wondering how i actually fit the item.

I have removed the radio and had a look but im not quite sure how to remove the box that sits below the radio.

If someone could tell me how to do this or if anyone has fitted on it would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Dan

Hi Dan,

You have one of these?
Citroen C3 Cubby fitted to dashboard

and want it to look like this
Citroen C3 Cubby removed from dashboard
Citroen C3 Cubby removed from dashboard
Put your hand in behind the cubby box and just pull it towards you. Its held in by plastic clips that need a good tug to release them. There are no hidden screws.


so you can fit one of these (you can often find a new one on eBay - click here)

That's great. A very useful addition to the car to keep all the parking change and bits and bobs.

Can you confirm its was a jolly good pull to get the cubby hole out of the dashboard and the year of your car (and its shape) :D

Thanks!

55 Plate c3 and its the 1.4 sx edition!

It was indeed a hard tug :P

A bit of "f in" & blindin but it came out so all good.

just make sure when fitting you try and keep it level as the spike on the rear of the drawer needs to secure into that.

Then of course lift the radio back into place tiliting from the bottom of tat oo.

Looks smart and no silly whole any more
