Wish I would have seen these easy removal methods a little sooner. Just spent the last hour removing and reinstalling the center console. At least I got to clean under it. And it does appear to be a sealed unit. View attachment 4193 View attachment 4194

I received mine last week. Did you receive a new rubber insert for the bottom? I did not and the old one covers up the lighting.

I just got mine yesterday and installed it with a pry tool and a house key to get the clear plastic bit out. The rubber insert is built in to the new cupholder as a unit.

So far I think think the new design is an improvement, but it's still a bit awkward.

It’s built in on the one I got.. don’t think it can be separated...
Thanks all. I just emailed the dealer that I bought it from, letting them know mine did not include that.

So, emailed the dealer back. They said that some of the ones they received had the insert and some didn't. They are sending out a new one...now to get this one out of my car.

Wondering if they fell out of the box along the way. Mine came with a shipping label on it, and nothing taping the box closed. Or forgotten at the factory? Or they got a bad batch? I hope they report it.

Got mine today. Quick 5 minute install... no issues. FYI the Inner Diameter of the new cup holder is narrower than the original one so if you had a cup that fit snugly before, it might not do so well in this one (or at least it won’t sit all the way down into the bottom). The rubber nubbins do do a better job of keeping things from rattling around in there though, no question.

Has Anyone found a dealer offering at a reasonable price? I find $25-30 by time you add tax and shipping. I cannot justify that price for the results.

Yea, they totally overcompensated. All they had to do was add the nubs. Instead they shrunk the diameter, added height, and added nubs.

Lol, overcompensate is good. My cup and drink containers fits better now. I usually store 12-16oz cup or can drinks in there
