    Hi,</SPAN>
    I am planning to paint my Punto Active’s center console and AC vents to silver, same as in higher end models. If any one of you knows how to open center console and AC vents, please let me know. A step by step guide very much appreciated. </SPAN></SPAN>

    Thank you,</SPAN>
    Pramod</SPAN>

    First of all stereo have to be removed by poking appropriate tool in 4 holes in HU. Then you can remove ac vents panel and ac panel by removing torx screws and pulling them towards you lightly.
    Also there are two torx screw also on lower part of ac panel near cup holders.

    Even I would be interested in this - though I want to paint the Linea's centre console matte black. The stock colour is pathetically dull.

    Try the spares for the full console from the higher models. The complete console isn't that expensive.

    Thanks for your responses, this weekend I will try working on it. My car color is BNW. I don’t want the same stock look of higher variants but with the same theme I need different look, so, I am trying DIY.
