Hi All, I have a 2008 Tribeca and would like to pull one of the 12 volt cigarette lighters and replace it with a dual USB power jack. I have the 6 bolts(2 up front and 4 from the 12 volt/AUX compartment) removed and the console is slid back all the way but will not allow the complete removal required to get to the 12 volt plugs. What is the missing piece of the puzzle here? Any assistance would be much appreciated.

I did not. I played around with it but couldn't figure that out. I ended up wedging my hand in there to get the job done, but there are easier ways and I wish I would have known the trick. Thanks for the reply. If anyone has a link to this procedure, please post it. Cheers.

The drawer is enclosed by the top surface and "legs" of the console mounting bracket, so it would get in the way if not removed. There's a diagram posted in the thread on replacing the gear selector bulb.
