Ok boys and girls, I haven't seen one of these threads yet so I decided to take it upon myself to photo-document my BT Park Lockout install.
For starters you will need some tools (socket set, needle nose pliers, universal screw driver, and a bottle opener) the BT Lockout, and of course some liquid refreshments.
Now that you have a beverage, set your radio to a good station, now you are ready to start!
Start by removing all the loose trim pieces (tray below ash tray, cubby beside shifter, chrome shifter trim, and the tray inside the arm rest)
With the tray out of the centre console remove the 3 8MM bolts around the raised sheet metal
Next remove the trim plate on the centre stack (I find it easiest to start at the top and then the bottom)
Once it it loose there are 3 sockets to disconnect, 1st is the Hazard/Airbag/ESP socket
Then the 2 for the Climate controls
Next pop the ashtray panel free and disconnect the 1 or 3 harness' from it
Now you can unscrew the 2 screws that go into the dash
Then the 2 that go into the floor
At this point you will be able to lift the whole centre console, there is going to be 1 or 2 harness' to disconnect before it can come out though, 1st is for the Accessory power, next if you car is VES equipped it's harness. I found it easier to recline the seat to disconnect them.
Now we are into the nitty gritty, there are 4 10MM (Deep socket, w/ an extension are preferable here) nuts holding the shifter assembly down, 2 on the back
and 2 on the front
With those done remove the 8mm bolt on the passenger side that holds the shifter cable. On the drivers side unhook the lock out cable from the pink thingy. Disconnect the harness on the rear of the shifter assembly, and the unit it ready to remove from the car
I'm not going to re-invent the wheel here so follow BT's instructional video on how to install the Lockout into the shifter assembly:
Once the sexy new BT piece is installed simply re-assemble.
The only thing to watch for is a set of tabs on the side aprons of the centre console where it meets the dash. They need to slip into their pockets
And you're done!!!
This was a 3 beer job on the difficulty scale
Now time for a quick test drive
