I wanted to replace the cup holder 2006 CLS500 Mercedes

Customer Question

I wanted to replace the cup holder for a 2006 CLS500 Mercedes benz. I ordered the part hoping instructions would come with it. Nope...... After noticing that there were only three screws in the picture of the part, it seemed simple. I just wanted a few pointers before I go diving in the center console.

You have to remove paneling on center console first

and remove the insert first so you want damage the chrome , i have a set of wedges i use , but u can use anything that is not sharp while pulling on paneling center console , if you use a flat head screwdriver , wrap it with a towel so it want scratch
