I wanta get inside cntr console and ashtray area of my 87 300D to run 
for my elec. mobility scooter.  'Thought I knew how to get ashtray 
out, but unable to do it yesterday.  Please remind me on ashtray assy 

cntr console cover removal.

Don't have a 124, but on all the others it's substantially the same:
you remove the tray itself (as for emptying) then remove the two
newly exposed screws after which the tray's frame can be removed.

To remove the ashtray assembly, take out the ashtray door and container 
(I think it has a spring clip at the rear, push down, rotate to clear 
the top, lift out), then remove the two screws at the bottom that are 
covered by the ashtray when it's in place..

Console cover comes up when you remove the screw under the carpet that 
holds the rear edge down.  Pull the carpet up, remove screw, then pull 
up on the angle bracket and the wood trim, along with fader and mirror 
switch will swivel up.  Lift up until the hooks on the front come clear 
of the console.
