plastic latch broke on armrest, fixed with jb-weld but has broken since
THE PLASTIC LATCH AND CATCH BROKE. DID NOT REPLACE. CONSOLE LID IS HEAVY ENOUGH AND RIDGID ENOUGH THAT LID STAYS DOWN WHILE DRIVING AND IS EASY TO OPEN WHEN NECESSARY.
it would not close properly after opening. have a body repairman fix latch.
