      I installed one and it's no issue. I wouldn't install without all the mounting bolts. You do have to remove the rear cover. Only a very small hole needs to be cut to allow,access,to the bolt holes, just takes some time trimming. I used a small exacto knife and the holes are just a little bigger than the bolt. I couldn't find one from a scrapyard so I just ordered online. Just over 280 shipped.

      Fish4Five, where did you order from please? Thanks for your help. And if you were to take the console back out would the small holes be covered by the plastic cover again? thank you

      What he said... :)

      I have part number of DB5Z-78045A36-AD from my dealer but no one knows if it has white stitching like the seats in my Sport...

      X3, I need the same info too. Need console # that has the stitching to match the Sport model seats. Thanks.

      Update to this: I did a bit more research and according to Ford's website, this is the # for the Sport console:

      DB5Z-78045A36-AA

      They list 2 for the Sport. One is Charcoal/Siena and one is Charcoal/Pebble. The number above if for the Charcoal/Pebble.

      THANKS..!!

      Your dealer is mistaken. Ford does sell them. List is around $360. The vendor on this site has the best price I've found so far ($280). Hoping to get our dealer we just purchased a X-Sport from to give us a better price.

      I'm sure that your dealer would love to make some quick cash to install it!

      It is the same console as the Flex but there is no chilled version available through the dealer as a complete assembly.

      Well, that would have been pretty cool if there was. Guess we'll settle for the standard console. I was looking at the front end, it seems there's a lot of unused space in the bottom. I'm guessing this is where the hardware for the cooler is normally mounted.

      A salesman told a friend of mine recently there was no way to get one for under $300 and it took 3 hours to install. Wanted over $500 to order and install it.

      2nd Row Console

      The dealership parts department is competely useless. I inquired about both console part #'s

      1. DB5Z-78045A36-AA CHARCOAL/PEBBLE

      2. DB5Z-78045A36-AD CHARCOAL/SIENA

      I plan on ordering the "AA" with Pebble and hopefully it is the black one with the white stitching. I will order it from a local dealer and if it arrives in some crazy ass color then I will tell them to send it back and order the correct part # like I originally asked for with "AD". I figure I will throw it back on them as if they entered in the wrong part number!!! Is that wrong considering they can' look at the parts computer and tell me the difference between the two?

      I need the same one with the white stitching as well... when anyone actually gets the correct console with the white stitching, it would be AWESOME if you could post and let us all know what to order. :)

      I order the console and as soon as it arrives I will post the results and some good photos of the install. I was told it would take a week to get which puts it in my hands before April 25th.
      I plan on installing some matching LED lights into the cup holders and inside the storage compartment so that rear passengers can see inside. I need to do some research so that I can tap into the existing ambient lighting system for power and color changes. Hopefully I'm not the only one that has considered this so any information would be great.

      Installing the Flex one with built in cooler sounds pretty cool. I would imagine they are pretty pricey.

      ****DB5Z-78045A36-AA CHARCOAL/PEBBLE****

      is Black with white stitchng! It's 100% confirmed I just recieved my 2nd row console and it is matches the Sport seat color and white stitching exactly. I will post photos of the console and the install as soon as get a chance tonight.

      FYI, I paid $275 at my local dealer. I printed a copy of the part # from prior post from a dealership in Minasota and they honored the price! No tax and no shipping cost either.

      My next project is installing some lights so that it resembles the front console. May have to get a car stereo store to give me price because I am not sure how complex it will be.

      PM for photos, I am unable to post any pics at this time.

      No problem. I really love the 2nd row console and I'm glad I got it. It looks excellent back there and everyone that looks at my truck seems to be most impressed when the look inside and see the rear bucket seats with the console and can't believe there is a 3rd row. The rear seats are easily just as comfortable as the fronts now that the console has been added.
      Phase 1 complete of the many mods I have planned for this beast!

      2013 Explorer Sport Console Install

      I just put in a second row console in my 2013 Explorer Sport and I thought I would share my install experience. It's about as simple has can possibly be! I removed the two screws and the cover, set the console in place and installed the two rear screws. Once they were tight I used an ice pick to clarify the two front holes. The ice pick went right through so I put the bolt in place and used a 1/4" rachet and 16" extension with socket and one firm hit with the palm of my and hand and started the screw! Repeated the same for the other front side and it was done. This install took all of about 15 minutes. You do not have to cut the front carpet as the directions from Ford suggested! Now if I need to remove the console I will have two very small holes that will probably hide with just the knap of the carpet! Easy and looks great and totally stock! I have no picks, it would have taken longer to take the pics and upload than it did to install!

      You mean lights like this? Factory ambient light modules tied in to the front that also change color.

      Thanks for the tips Player1. I just put mine in and it was super easy and like you, I did not cutting of the carpet. Now the interior looks "complete".

      Additional "Space" in consile, behind front panel.

      Did you guys notice that you can access another square foot of "storage space" in the console where the Refrigerator compressor used to be?
      Just PULL briskly on the Front panel,..from the lower edge, and the pannel removes.
      Held in only by two "Ford pinching" fastener clips.
      I keep a First aid kit and folding shovel in there. Low use objects,...hopefully.

      Correction. Although "AA" is the charcoal/pebble, "AD" is not charcoal/sienna. After ordering the incorrect one from a dealership, here are the correct part #'s with corresponding interior colors. All numbers are the same, they only end with different letters to designate the matching interior.

      "AA" - charcoal/pebble
      "AB" - charcoal/sienna
      "AC" - charcoal/pecan
      "AD" - charcoal/black

      The sienna and pecan are quite similar, just a very slight different shade of brown...make sure to check vin or window sticker to confirm.
