Re: cup holder cover '04 (Elmoworld)

You can remove the lid by prying the ears from inside the cupholder.<p>Be aware though that the larger outside pins have small slip-on bushings to fit the larger channels which may go flying. Also the smaller guide pins have a spring-load. <p>If you remove the lid without pulling the full cupholder assembly there will be no way to get the guide pins behind the springs again. You'll have a floppy lid and you'll hate it.<p>You need to pull the whole assembly and that requires dismantling the entire center console. Have at it<p>I have a spare cupholder assembly and intend to paint the lid eventually but it's a deceptively big job.
