Default Need Help Installing New Cup Holder Assembly and Latch Assem

Does anyone know how to install these. I need to know how much of the console I need to remove to get the old cup holder assembly out. I can not reach the back screws because they are under the console. Do I need to remove the entire console?Thanks

No need to remove the entire console. But you'll need a short stubby screwdriver to remove the screws from the trim around the console lid opening. I think you also need to remove the 2 adjustable vents from the rear (they just pop out) to get to another screw or two. It'* been a long time since I did this.

Well, not to call Will wrong, since I don't know if your car differs from my 96; but you don't have to pull those vents out (made that mistake)

After you open the console, remove the 2 obvious screws at the fron of the console
then, reach in and pull out the back "wall" of the console--it just snaps in
Inside the console, if youcan see under the edge of it (might need a mirror) are 2 nuts that thread onto the studs built into the hinge for the lid--take those out, along with the lid, and that takes care of that end
At the front, remove either the blank finisher panel, or the seat controls (depends on how your car is equipped) then you will see one hex-head screw, angled down at about a 45 deg angle--remove that, and the bezel/latch/cupholder assembly is ready for removal

Again, that is how my 96 is put together--not sure if yours is the same

Jim

Jim is right. I recall having the vents out, but I'm betting it was to replace my rear cigar lighter. There'* a false panel in the rear, and one at the bottom. The procedure is just as he wrote.

Thanks Jim!

Thanks Guys, Knowledge is power. The new cup holder and latch assembly were easy once I got to those 2 nuts in the back. Engineers design stuff with no consideration to replacement!
