Has been crackling for awhile...just took apart and found the only thing holding it together was four screws that screw into small plastic holes and the latch is only held in with two small plastic hooks. The part will cost us over $200 to replace this cheap plastic lid that will probably break again. We are senior citizens and had planned on this being our last car. We have had problems with rear brake problems (covered) as well as front brake problems (locking up and not covered). We even bought the extended coverage. Weren't we smart?

the power point is on rear of the center console. That is the only one that does not work.
