    Hello,

    My wife dropped a diamond pendant between the passenger seat and the armrest assembly. When she tried to reach it, the carpet or floor flexed and it went underneath!

    So first, what's underneath that? Is this pendant now sitting on the battery compartment risking damage?

    Second, how do I remove the assembly - I don't have a center console so I'm basically looking for the instructions as if I was installing the OEM center console.

    I might have to visit the SC and pay them, but at $150/hr that's an expensive fishing expedition.

    Thanks!

    Removing the center console is quite the task. It is a one piece assembly.

    I've seen that (or similar) picture before. The pendant went under that bump out closest to the rear.

    Anyone have a guide for removal?

    So, for what it's worth, my wife went to the SC. They were able to retrieve the pendant in about 30 minutes and didn't charge her (ran it as a goodwill inspection). She threw $40 their way for lunch, that's still cheaper than a half hour of shop labor rate.
