    I have the same problem

  • Anonymous Feb 28, 2009

    The spring based opening/closing mechanism on the back of the center console went AWOL. I shoved the two ends of the spring from the top portion back in to their orignal "approximate" location and can get it to shut and close. However, the top comes completely off when I try to get in to the console. I'm going to buy a new center console online. It seems like a relatively easy fix. Dont have the dealership do it for you or your kids won't be able to go to college.

I have the exact same thing happen with my 03 silverado. I beat it open and then took out the plastic molded part the latch is in and noticed there's a little white plastic cylinder that fell out, but I don't know where it goes to fix it..... damm it....

The white plastic cylinder is there for a reason. When the center counsil is in the uprightnposition so that the center seat can be utilized, the white plastic cylinder rolls up and disables the top from opening. It is a safety feature than prevents all your stuff from falling out. - dan

99 Yukon passenger door will open with inside handle. Must open door from outside.


Could be the clip that holds the rod into the handle had broken off, or could be the arm on the handle itself. If I remember correctly, there are stud on the handle with nuts to hold the handle in place, so that's not a particularly hard repair. Just take your time taking the trim panel off and pay attention how it comes apart.

Ashtray door is stuck closed


Try to use a good quality "Foam Cleaner" - don't use too much - ; it might be due to dust or dirt. Leave if for a few minutes, and then tap gently on the ashtray cover. Repeat the process if needed, then wipe clean. This may solve the problem, as I had a similar case two days back but with the ashtray of one of the rear doors on my 1999 XJ8.. and this solved it.. also I used same trick to make the top of the ashtray compartment in the center console opens more freely.

My 2007 audi tt convertible roof is stuck in an open position and will not close or open


I believe that the motor went bad on you that lets the roof to open or close but also you could have a connection problem or short in the wires. Have you in the past heard the motor move the roof open or close or never noticed it at all?

I have a 1999 Saturn and my check engine light has been on for a few months now but I haven't had any serious problems. However, over the past few months my car has started sound very rough when it's in...


if the egr valve is stuck open or closed it would cause the car to run rough or stall out but you would probly notice a change in the fuel millage as well if your friend has a scanner to check the computer then he or she can also replace the egr valve/sencer i would also check the spark plugs and wires as well as replace the fuel filter and air filter if you buy a service manual for the vechile it will help you do the repairs needed and for way cheaper then the shop will charge you.

Trying to locate cabin air filter in 2003


The 2002/2003 Silverado was a change over year for Cabin Air filters. I know with the Chevy Avalanche the 03's did not have them and 02's did. The dash/center console changed with the 03's, and I believe it was done away with in that change over.... Still shows up on catalog, but the 03 has no Cabin Filter.

Good luck, and Merry Christmas
