do U already have a new one? I'm guessing it shouldn't be too hard all U'd need is a screw driver I'm sure U won't have any trouble finding one at a junk yard, also; Is your cup holder missing as well?

you can order the new and improved version from the dealer like i did. it comes with a latch that is well designed and wont break as easily and the cup holder can snap in or out when you want it or not (as opposed to snapping it off forever haha).

Need to clarify.....I repaired the console bezel (the part that has the latch and pivots for the cupholder).

I paid 23 bucks for the improved cupholder, nothing else.

The console bezel is MIA(the latch, the cup holders, the hinge) , and so are the swivel for the rear vents

If you're missing all that, go to a wrecker. The console lid is very expensive from the dealer.
