      Hi All,
      I bought used 2016 Exp Limited 11k miles on it. 301A package, extended moon roof, bucket seats for second row.
      Now I want to add center console between bucket seats. Can anyone guide me where to buy and can we install our self? Also mine has "limited" and "flex fuel" emblem painted in black. Car fax doesn't show any accident history. How to remove the paint and get the chrome look back?.

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      I found this thread using the Forum's handy "Search" function and merged yours with it. As for the painted black parts, if they were 'plati-dipped' they shouldn't be too difficult to get back to chrome. See if it will peel off. There is a PDF document in this thread on the installation. Levittown Ford Super Center is a site vendor. You can send a message to Benny and request information in the console. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?conversations/add&to=LevittownFordSuperCenter

      Hi Peter,
      Its not paint but plasti dip as you said..I was bale to peel it of easily. Any reason you can think of why they might used plasti dip for a new car?.
      coming to Second row center console, I was able to find them in ebay for 320$. Can we buy from them or better get it from dealer or the source you mentioned?

      Glad you were able to get the chrome back. There are several threads about members who changed the chrome look to black, including the grill. I guess it's a personal preference. It is really up to you where you decide to buy the console from. I don't know what the going price is these days from a dealer or supplier. One thing that has been discussed is getting the correct console to match the interior. They apparently have different colour stitching in some cases. It looks like each has a different part number as well because of that. Never having had one I can only go by what members have posted.
      Check out this thread I just found; http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?threads/2nd-row-console.425693/

      Does the DB5Z-78045A36-AA fit the 2016 explorer platinum? I received GB5Z-78045A36-AD all black and new model number for 2016 and 2017 models. From what I researched it sounds like it should fit.
      I wanted it to match my ebony with white stitching interior. Looking at pictures and youtube video of new 2016 models with 2nd row console factory installed, show the matching black with white stitching.

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      Please add the trim (Base, XLT, etc.) of the Explorer to your profile so it shows in the margin. That is useful info to have when replying to posts. Thanks.

      For my '16 Sport, this looks like the right one to get: GB5Z-78045A36-AD. I have charcoal interior with red stitching.

      Hi Rickepnet,

      Would you please confirm if the console you installed with the part number GB5Z-78045A36-AA has white or black stitching? The front console on our 2017 Platinum is black leather with white stitching and would like the 2nd row console to match the front. From my research the GB5Z part number is for 2016 and 2017. Where the DB5Z is for 2011-2015.

      Thanks!

      I will snap a picture and when I get home I will confirm the part number.

      Thanks alot for verifying that info. It appears that only two consoles are available for 2016/2017 model year. Black with black stitching and black with red stitching.

      Anyone out there with 2016/2017 non sport trim, with a factory installed 2nd row console, that can confirm it has stitching color other than black?

      Appreciate the help! Thanks

      Couldn't find that the black with white stiching is available for purchase after the fact to get an exact match to the front console, so I went with the black with black stitching like the picture above. It looks great!

      Ordered from autonation, best price anywhere, shipped in 2 days arrived perfect. Install took about 30 minutes. Put bolts in the back, used an awl to poke through the carpet for the front bolt holes and put bolts in and tightened.

      Thanks to all that posted on this topic, it really helped.

      Just a suggestion but Benny from Levittown Ford Super Store is a Forum Vendor and has been outstanding at helping members of this forum locate parts or clarify availability. You could PM or email him.

      I contacted Benny, he confirmed that the best option available right now is the Ebony with Black stitching.

      Thanks for the suggestion. That make me feel like I made the best decision that I could at the time.

      You guys have some great information on this thread. I have a 2014 Limited and removed the 2nd row center console for easier access for the kids to the 3rd row. I know there is a cover for the mount bracket, but is there a carpet cover as well to go over the exposed bare floor?

      Bracket cover is #04572 from ford ($32 at fordparts.com)

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      I don't recall anyone posting about a specifically mag\de carpet for that area but I believe both Husky and WeatherTech have 2nd row liners that cover some or all of that area.

      Might have to take a gently used junk floor mat from another vehicle and trim it to size. That could work too. I just remember test driving a Explorer sport and it had a plastic cover for the rear mount bracket, and the rest was carpet. I don't remember if it was a separate piece or if it was part of the entire floor carpet. Maybe someone with a sport trimmed model could snap a picture of theirs for reference. I know the bracket cover is available (part number above), but if there isn't a factory carpet piece available I can narrow my search a little.

      Sorry for resurrecting an older thread but I purchased the 2nd row console from Levittown and would like to add the small ambient lights as shown in post #70 on page 3 of this thread. Anyone else done this? Know where to get the lights and where to wire them in? Many thanks.

      just need to cut a couple squares for each mount point, no need to remove the entire carpet.
