Whats the general consensus on approx. number of workshop hours to remove existing centre console including front & rear storage and reinstall on 997.1?

Been meaning to replace mine for ages but never seem to get the time and then worried I will damage something. Considering just giving it to my Indy to do next time the car is in but just wondering what to expect.

Thanks

R&R center consol is 0.9 hrs .

Most of us can do it quicker but thats what i would expect a garage to charge .. standard time .

Takes me about 30 mins to do .

30 mins to take off, but if ya getting it painted then will be longer cos you don't wanna risk the center console being scratched Thumb so you take your time putting it back !

It took me about an hour to remove mine having never done it before and an hour to reinstall as you don't want to scratch it but I'd say 30mins each way for an experienced Tec.
In the centre consol group buy thread there is a very comphrensive removal and install guide Thumb
