Sorry it took me so long to respond, I have been busy. I called nissanpartszone.com and they basically they told me that the part number I gave them came up in there systems as a bezel, they could not give me any more specifics other then that. So basically no help at all. He did say the wiring might be slightly different for each car model. I don't know how that is so, being that the only thing in the bezel are the lights. The connection for the DVD monitor has it own connection separate from the bezel.

My best advice is that every thing comes with a return policy if it is not the part that you seek send it back.

When I bought this it came with everything I needed to install it. The only problem is that it came in grey, so I painted it to match the rest of the interior of the car.

Hope this helps.

How much did it cost you to get the Bezel painted to a Tan Color? I still have not ordered the part due to them telling me I cannot return the part since I am not using my VIN number to see if the part fits. I have to order it I hate not having the console in my truck.

Sorry to revive an old thread guys - as I posted when I joined this site, my overhead console is cracked, and even though I've only had my Armada 3 weeks or so, the sound like someone is banging a plastic cymbal every time I hit a bump is driving me insane. (It's cracked right near where the DVD console area is - right behind my head). I'd like to buy the console/bezel/whatever it's called - or earmuffs or something... But the cheapest I can find it for is about $600-750+. I've seen other people say they've found them somewhere for $250-ish. If this is still true, can someone post a link to where I can purchase one? Per my luck, it seems the price of these quadrupled right around the time I bought my Armada. Thanks guys - j

Edit: The link I've found - to make sure this is the same part/site you guys are ordering from

Had the same experience. Called Armada Customer Service they ran me around to a couple of different customer reps one had me go to a dealership and get them to verify and a quote to fix which raised my hopes for an acceptable result to fix the situation only to be rejected. Love my Armada think the Customer Service to be Poor especially on a known issue

Does car quest sell a certain paint? Can you tell me the brand? My interior color is a beige color that I would like to match. Thanks for your help.

Here are some pictures of the paint can. The brand that they use is DUPONT automotive paint.

Thanks again for being so helpful. The pictures were unclear to the paint numbers. Could you please write them down on this thread. I ordered the bezel and it should be here Friday would like to match the tan color now. Thanks again for all your help

Let me say this, I AM SOOO GLAD I FOUND YOUR TREAD.

This thread had me march right back down to the dealer for a second time and educate them on the fact that a replacement DOES exist for far less than $869.00.

Let me give my story.

About 8 months ago I walked outside to find my overhead console cracked in half and hanging from the roof. Fustrated but figuring I could salvage the climate controls, lights, and radio controls, I went right down to the dealer and asked them if I could just order the plastic piece. He takes my V.I.N. number down and procedes to exaplain the replacement part if roughly $869.00. i also fainted.

I searched for months trying to find a replacement piece for a reasonable price. There were none to be had. The best I found was a guy selling a "new in box" replacement on Ebay for $400. I figured this was the best deal I was going to get and it appeared to be half the cost. that is until I stumbled upon jrm5f2's post and I had hope.

This time I went to another dealer and argued with him not to look up the replacement by V.I.N. I convinced him to use the part number listed here in this thread. He explained to me that this was a "special order" part and had to be paid for upfront and there were no refunds. Fearing the worst I finally convinced him to order it, let me peek at it when it arrived, and if it was the correct one, I'd buy it and get him lunch. He agreed.

4 days later I got a call from the parts manager that the piece was in. i went to Nissan and just as jrm5fs explained it was the EXACT piece needed , only in another color. (it's the same color as the one jrm posted) My vehicle has an almond interior and there's a significant color difference. But I had an idea. I salvaged everything I could from my old unit and then purchased Valspar "plastic" paint in almond. I proceeded to paint the main body of the unit and it's so close in color you can hardly tell the difference.

Anyone wishing to replace their broken overhead console and not wanting to pay in upwards of $800 should follow the advice contained in this thread. ***Important**** Do not let them order the part via your V.I.N. it will cost you $500. more than if you use jrm's listed number. You will probally have to paint it to match but I'd rather keep my $500 in my own pocket and have a piece that's about as close to an exact color match as you can get .

Thank you so much to the O.P. for the amazing piece of information and a special thanks to http://mikeerdmannissan.com They really work with their Nissan customers.

I will post my results tomorrow as it's almost 1am here and I'm spent.

I received my bezel yesterday just as you have in the pictures. It came in a grey color. I will go to car quest and with these pictures and a sample of the color beige my interior is to see if they match with what you used. Can't tell you how much I appreciate the help you have given me in this regard. Thanks

Front Overhead Console

You are not going to believe this but now my front overhead console has fallen off! I am so upset and of course Nissan will not cover it due to warranty being out. Does anyone know the part# for it?

It is the console where you put your shades and you contract the rear A/C. This is a defect Nissan Armada's have. First the rear console fell off now the front. Very frustrating. :/
