Upper AC Surround Trim Wanted

I'm looking for anyone that might have this trim piece available that they don't need anymore.

Part# 9965526770001C



I'm looking to take out my CD Holder (which is available to anyone interested, just PM me and I will send it to you) and move the AC controls to this slot and install the storage bin I already purchased in the bottom most slot.


Parts I have available for anyone interested:

CD Holder
AC trim surround lower (with curved edges)

The AC wont fit in the upper slot of the lower console without modifying the surround.
You are better off putting it in the lowers slot, get a storage bin for the upper slot from suncoast or ???

If you don't get it from Meir, I might have one lying around.

Jay - why dont think that it would fit the top space of the lower console? it seems square like the top spaces. Please let me know if it really wont work. Then I would have to ditch the cup holders and move the AC controls to the very top space and then would have to source another storage bin (only the square one) and have 2 bottom storage bins.

It is a square space, but if you measure the height of the space in the top of the top console with the AC bezel and the top of the bottom console, you will see the top console is a taller space

The top is ~2.75" and the bottom is ~2.375"

I have seen people put the AC control in the lower console top space, but they trim off the bottom of the bezel

Jay - Thanks for the explanation. I will see which setup works best for me, either having the AC controls in the upper console or trim the bezel for it to fit in the top lower console space.

NP

Or leave the AC in the bottom and get a storage shelf for the upper bay of the lower console
