Hi had that same problem and it will come out but only with great force it has rubber tips behind that keeps it in. I have found that it is much easier to pull it out all the way and then take the little drawer out underneath that is how i retreived my cds that fell in!!

Replacing cup holder


I assume you mean the one that flips up in the center console?

If so, there are three likely issues.

1) did you slide out the retainer from the upper screw? the top screw had a cover that had to be pried off. you then took the screw out. Lastly you have to slide out the plastic retainer that the screw went into. It slides out towards the opening.

2) you have to have the cup holder partially open to remove it. the hinged part that folds up is stored in the cavity under the console when closed. you have to open the cup holder and keep pushing until the front of the cup holder lip comes up. Work the cup holder up and down until it comes out.

3) the cup holder is stuck in place due to years of spilled liquid. If you've done the above, then you can either spray soapy water on the creases around the opening and let it set, or you can apply strategic brute force.
Be aware through. if this is the center console cup holder just behind the gear shifter. There are two screws and nothing else to hold it in. Just be carefull....

How do I remove the coin tray from my sr5toyota hilux


My '04 Toyota Hilux cup holder came out as follows... You need to start by removing the dash trim that surrounds the instrument panel and air vents, as per the following. Looking through the steering wheel to the instrument panel, remove the two screws above the instrument panel window. Then remove the two screws under the steering column. Then carefully prise back the section of lower trim to the right of the radio, you will see another screw, remove this. The instrument trim is now free to be wiggled free from its clips. You will need to disconnect the lead to the digital clock. You can now remove the whole dash trim which contains the housing for the cup holder and place it on a work bench. If you then look down onto the sliding tray (from above) you will see two squareish tabs. These tabs are the limiting tabs preventing the tray from sliding out (under normal use). What you need to do is slide the tray out wards and using a flat screwdriver lever these tabs downwards as you pull gently on the tray. You should do one side at a time, so push one tab down until the draw is free on that side then while holding the draw steady repeat for the next tab. Once the two tabs are squeezed free the tray will slide out. With practice I suppose you could just pull the tray straight out (without removing the dash trim) by interting two hacksaw blades curved slightly upwards throught the front of the (open) tray to squeeze the tabs as you pull the draw forward but you need a little luck and knowledge of where the tabs are... And besides, removing the dash trim is pretty simple. With these instruction it should take no more than 10-15 minutes start to finish. Good luck!! Mike

Have a 89 pickup can not find ICM or isuzus equivalent Where in truck is it , Thanks Scott


Ignition control box is actually termed an ECM (electronic control module) in those days, later changed to PCM, per the J1988 EPA standards. On the 1989 TF pickup, it was located typically under the center console, between the seats, depending on what equipment level you had. There was a coin tray that was used mostly as a cup-holder by consumers, and if you lifted out eh tray, the ECM was directly underneath. Other locations included under the glove box and behind the right and left kick-panels. It all depends on which engine/transmission/trim level combination you have.

If its behind the cd / radio this item is easy to remove yourself. Start at the bottom from cup holder section, snap itout on the front and the sides are simple screws and plugs.

Did it myself to take coins out of the CD player that my 2yr old inserted??!! DOH

Good luck
