Glove box hasnt opened since I owned it. :-(
center console cover wornout , cupholder has failed , where can i get a replacement cover and cup holder
Cup holder fell apart
Center console, cupholder and compartment lid broke and faded to raw materials under leather. I had to replace the whole top .
Glove box has to be pulled on while pushing button in order to open. Cup holders up/down operation fell apart. A lot of small plastic clip-looking pieces.
Cup holder mechanism failed. Basically, the unit came apart.
All three issue happened on mine!
clip inside cup holder compartment
Cup holder broken I can not find a replacement
the problem started when the cup holder cover won't hold to its lock. the after few months the whole assemble came out.
