    Default I have no knowlege of this Senator!

    Other termnolgy that I had heard were used was reefer, joint and hooter, not to be confused with the place that sells hamburgers and hot wings

    These are just some of the things I heard; I have no personal experience with these descriptive types of references to this illegal substances referenced or not

    As a follow up, not that it matters much now, yes, I do have an inner lid on the ashtray that stays open when the outer lid is open....ta da! I feel so much better now!

    Oh yeah, I heard that some folks called those "numbers" as well back in the day. I cannot verify if that is true or not.

    Default C5 Console door....

    Since this thread is open, should the center console door only open about 3 inches? I don't want to force the hinges if they're just misadjusted but it seems like the door should open further than this. As it is, I can barely get my hand into the console.

    This is for an '03 FRC.

    No, your hinges are jacked up.

    [QUOTE=Boeingdriver;960185]Since this thread is open, should the center console door only open about 3 inches?

    That door is an overly complex design!! The way it works is that when the Brake handle is up, it gets in the way of fully opening. They resolved the issue by making the hinge angle both normally and upward. go figure?
    SO when you open it, you must also lift the hinge side straight up for more clearance. The links are a tight fit and by now need a tiny bit of light oil to make it a bit easier.

    Well said, it's actually kind of ingenious though, considering the limitations with the park brake lever. I only wish GM would have spent as much money on their electronics.

    Mine opens to a 90 degree, not quite as much with the parking brake set. Are you sure you talking about a C-5? he hinge is a little funky the way it works if you know what I mean

    NJ, we are going to have to get you a Photobucket account!

    Here's a better picture:



    ...and yes, your console should open to a 45 degree angle.

    Junkman... great job. I think that we got the message across! It took me a while to figure it out. The manual really doesn't describe it too well.
