    where abouts? i couldnt see any nuts.. I pulled the gator up and all I see is the gear stick and the silver casing that connects to the gator

    also I couldnt get the ashtray out by just pushing it, well I got it to move down but the're not enough room to work with

    when you lift the gaitor up there is a rubber cover lift that up and in the bottom corner there will be the two black nuts
