    i would advise against hot glue, i've seen it done before, and on hot summer days, the hot glue ends up melting.

    and that mighty putty actually works pretty damn good, i've used it before when our microwave handle broke off

    i think my method works good. it's just small screws that we took outta an extra ceiling fan before we threw it away.

    to take the whole console down take the one screw out at the front, then there are 2 clips in both corners at the opposite end just pull straight down on them
