The centre console in a Mercedes Benz ML320 contains the gearshift lever, cup holders and storage compartment. It can be removed for repair, replacement or for access to ML320 window and brake wiring. You would need to remove the centre console to replace the lateral acceleration sensor, which controls the ESP/BAS light on the ML, as it's located directly under the console. The centre console comes off as one piece in just a few minutes.
