How do you operate the overhead compartment storage console?

Your car’s overhead compartment includes a storage console where you can stash small items, including sunglasses. It’s built into the console and folds upward when not in use. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Press the back edge of the storage compartment door.

  2. The compartment will open.

  3. Add your item(s).

  4. Close the compartment door back (make sure it latches securely).

Tips

  • Don’t access the storage compartment while you’re driving – keep your eyes on the road.

  • Don’t attempt to store items too large for the compartment. You can damage the hinges, or the compartment might pop open while you’re driving.
