I was tired of having my garage door openers clipped onto my sunvisor so I came up with a way to hide them. I'm sure this has been done before, but I thought I would write up a DIY for anybody else that wants to give it a shot.
I have two different kinds of openers, on is Genie and the other is Liftmaster. Im sure that the process will be similar with all kinds of openers.
I purchased these momentary push buttons from radio shack for about $2.
Then you must take apart your opener. Once you get it open, look at the circuit board and find the post on the back for the opening buttons. I decided to do a botton for all 4 of my doors.(3 on the Genie and one on the Liftmaster) solder a piece of wire to these post.
After measuring an apporximate length of wire, solder the other end of the wire to the post of the buttons.
Now you must remove the center console and wood trim to hide the remotes. To do this first remove these two screws in the coin tray.
Then pull up the wood trim and set it aside.
Next remove these 5 screws to remove the center console.
Then remove this single screw that is inside of the center arm rest.
After remove that screw, pull of the plastic cover on the back of the center console. (all of the yellow stuff is for the SRS system, so be careful)
