www.nissanpartsdiscount.com Part no. 96939-ZQ00A or you could use your vin to verify that it will fit. It was 11.06 cents (cost me 22.00 to ship.) Pulled out DVD player from cracked console and used the wiring harness from the cracked console so my DVD player would work. Took me less than 30 min. to swap. Super pumped considering Reed Nissan in Orlando wanted 2400.00 for cracked plastic!! Ordered two more for spares!!!

P.S. 2008 Nissan Armada LE Flex Fuel 5.6 Liter V8 Engine

Flipper-26, thanks for the heads up on http://www.nissanpartsdiscounts.com/...san/96939zq00a. Trevor at the nissanpartsdiscounts was even kind enough to send me photos of the part. Unfortunately, shipping is a fortune for it to be sent to me in Hawaii and I need the light grey color rather than this tan colored part; but, you main lander's can score a deal on this part! I'm still disappointed that Nissan USA does not see this part as needing to be a under warranty. I never touched the rear roof top console EVER; and, I believe the poor design of the part/design in lacking some sort of insulation from a hot roof top is to blame. Attachment points of plastic part to bolts disintegrated and cracking spread. Right now using strapping, a hanger, large washers, etc., I have improvised and reattached this console and the front roof console which ALSO has the same issue in regards to poor uninsulated from hot roof top design and came down within the year. https://plus.google.com/photos/10718...74456049092529
Back to my search for a less than $421.41 (Hawaii dealership price!) cost for this part. But, another poster had a great idea for me to find the part at Infiniti which I believe I may have a lead on to now...

Has anyone found a loop hole for the front console? Mine fell while it was parked in New Orleans at the cruise ship terminal. I already ordered the rear from Infinity, just cant really find the front.

I just had the same problem with my '08 Armada this week. I took it to the dealer (Bondy's Nissan in Dothan, AL) because a clip had slipped out holding the front left overhead console snug to the overhead. They tried a fix and the whole thing came down breaking into several pieces. They told me it would cost $2700.00 to fix? WTH?

After some wrangling they agreed to fix it charging me only for labor. I am happy that Bondy's agreed to pick up the cost of the replacement. They'll get my business again. I am not happy with the shoddy design of this part.

I have a 2008 QX56 and the console is slowly cracking and coming apart. I'm wondering if anyone had any luck this year finding 96939ZQ00A at any part place?

Nissan realized their mistake. They had listed the part for less than $20. The price now is about $700.00 for the console. I bought two when it was about $16 each. Nowadays, you will have to bite the bullet. You may have luck on eBay.

About a year ago, the rear console on mine fell down, cracked towards the front of the Armada. I replaced the hardware with longer, stainless steel, (metric of course) bolts and some large SS fender washers. (longer bolts so that the washers would contact the large plastic face of the console above the headphone storage bin.

This is a much more robust way to fasten it compared to the little plastic tabs that Nissan used.

Anyway, this repair was awesome, no glue, no drama, the whole thing just looked brand new (the cracks were so small, not noticeable).

UNTIL!

The headphone storage bin cracked and fell down also. DAMN YOU NISSAN PLASTIC ENGINEER DEPARTMENT, almost as bad as an iPhone data cable plastic hahaha.
