2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Accidental Center Console Release

May 18, 2012


I've got bony elbows. As a result, I find myself regularly opening the Mustang's center console unintentionally. It usually happens when I rest my elbow on the console lid, but I've also bumped the release when shifting from first to second or third to fourth.

The bony protrusion on the bottom of my elbow in combination with the placement of the release are the cuplrits. Happens nearly every time I drive the car. In fact, I quite often leave the lid open to avoid the hassle.

Does this happen to anyone else?
