    Some Mirages have a "cell phone cubby/shelf" above the glove compartment

    I was just looking at the photos of 25Plus' Space Star in our garage and noticed there's a cubby above the glove box that I haven't seen before:

    In the Mirages I've seen, we only get a simple "blank out" panel in its place (here's a photo of a 2015 model year U.S. spec car):

    Looking through Google images, I see the cubby in some Mirages from other countries as well, eg. Australia and PH:



    I bet it's a simple part to replace.

    Interesting find Darn. I wonder if there isn't something behind that on the US Mirages? Why wouldn't they keep it otherwise?

    Maybe someone has the part nr of the model from the Dashboard, so you could buy ind from Europe, or someone males A DIY ..

    I would like to have the touthscreen/radio the US model ES has, and the sand White cabin in the lowest Picture. Looks so good!

    I had seen this before buying our Mirage and asked the dealer about it.he didnt even know about it. when you open the glove box you can feel what feels like something above it. not sure why they have it covered. i havent had the nerve to try to get to it. seem odd not to leave it as it does work as extra storage.

    thanks for reading
    Don

    I had my brother try and buy me the cubby while he was on a business trip to the Philippines and the dealership there couldn't even find a part number for it.

    Did you happen to check beforehand to see if there's anything behind the blank out panel in your car?

    I would imagine you'd have to change the whole piece, including dash.

    If you look carefully you will notice another difference. They get the Piano trim around the outside vents, I really want that on my Mirage! That and the passenger side flush wiper!

    Mine has the shelf.
    Just had a good look at it, and this is the outcome:

    I can confirm it clips on to the lower part of the dash, and thus is not an integral part of the dash.

    This should be good news for those wanting to have one, because it obviously can be exchanged without having to swap the dash.
