  1. Grab the middle of the cup holder firmly and pull outwards to release the clips (1).
  2. Remove the cup holder from the console.




  1. Install the cup holder by pushing inwards till the clips (1) click in place.
  2. Ensure around the corners of the cup holder is seated properly.







  1. Remove the upper trim bezel from the center console.
  2. Remove the remote CD player if equipped.







  1. Insert a flat bladed tool between the console and cupholder assembly.
  2. Remove the cupholder assembly by prying the cupholder to release the clips (2).
  3. Remove the wire connector for the cupholder.
  4. Remove the cupholder from the console.




  • Place the cupholder assembly over the console.
  • Connect the wire connector to the cupholder assembly.
