    This is a Series II car.
    1) I have an issue with the driver's side vent control lever. To get access I need to be able to lift up the front portion of the center console. I have taken out the two bolts from under the ash tray and the rear of the panel lifts easily but the front of the panel is fixed. Are there bolts for the front? Where? In front of radio opening? Under the gauge cluster?

    2) Lever - I first thought the control wire had come undone, but it appears the pivot point for the lever has come loose or is broken. Fearing the worst and these parts available from Ferrari sources or other (Fiat/Alfa)?

    I believe Verell (Unobtainium supply company) had some of these made. They are chrome plated brass, instead of plastic like the factory. I’d contact him.

    I know Verell and will keep it in mind once I get to see the problem.

    I'm still looking for way to get front of panel lifted up.

    Lifting the panel front was relatively easy. There are two bolts under the gauge cluster. This allowed me to lift the panel enough without disconnecting all the wires.
    Looking and wiggling the lever resulted in a part falling out and likely at least another piece that was not retrieved. Here are pics of what I retrieved. I am not certain what I should have or if one of these parts is broken or others just missing. If you have a pic of what I should have that would be great or at least say "its broken"! I am sending the same pics to Verell today to see what he can do for me.
