2021 Model Y — Need to Tap Power Source/Feed to Qi Chargers

I have a 2021 Tesla Model Y with the NEW center console… the one with the NON-REMOVABLE Qi Wireless Chargers.

I have two devices that require power and are located in/around the bottom of the 15” display.

Visible wires ARE NOT an option. I want to tap into the power source for these new wireless Qi chargers and route said power between the top of the console and the bottom of the dashboard.

  • How are these new Qi pads supplied with power?
  • Do they use a pair of hidden USB ports or
  • Are they hardwired?
  • What is the wiring path (start and finish)?
  • How do I disassemble that part of the console without drilling and/or damaging anything?
  • I do not care if I need to de-activate the Qi chargers as I do not use them.
ANY AND ALL GUIDANCE will be greatly appreciated‼️ I have yet to find a single video on how to deal with the new console.
