Center consul - USB / Aux port swap

So I need to swap out the USB / Aux plug socket in my e93.

Can anyone supply a link or tips on how to do this?

So far I can remove the gear stick!

When I removed my aux port to swap out with a usb/aux, I loosened the rear driveshaft tunnel trim and stuck a really long screwdriver to push it out, whilst sticking my hand (awkwardly) through the handbrake aperture to guide the screwdriver to the underside of the socket, after removing the leather trim.

Was a painful and frustrating exercise, but I got there in the end!

I believe it is easier if you have an LCI model due to the non-cooled armrest compartment.

There's a fairly good DIY thread if you search the forums - I stumbled on it the other day. Try searching for '6FL upgrade'.

I drilled my old Aux in socket as I wasted about 2 hours trying to get it out!
