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.
Removal of the original unit is quite simple. Just remove the two phillips screws holding the cup holder in place and pull out the cup holder. Remove the two screws holding the ash tray in place and remove the ash tray. The entire front bezel on the dashboard can now be removed by grasping and pulling forward. It is held in just with clips at this point. Remove the leads from the auxilliary plug and cigar lighter. Using a socket set and a 10 mm socket, remove the two 10 mm bolts holding the head unit in place. Slide the head unit forward, disconnect the two flat wire connectors, the antenae, and the ground connection (requires 10 mm socket as well). The head unit can now be removed. Replacement head units direct from Dodge are VERY expensive as are repaired units which I haven't had very good luck with. Your best option is to try and find a used unit for a good price. Fitting an aftermarket system will be pricy and tricky as the original system utilized an external amplifier located in the panel behind the drivers seat (some models have other amp locations) and a component type speaker system. Good Luck!
For a 95 Chevy Silverado....I replaced the Blend Door Actuator on the passenger side. Just behind the slide out cup holder. Yo ucan acces easily by removing the ash tray piece and the glove box....Or just the glove box and work like hell to get a socket in a tight place.
There are 2 actuators....one controlling the (Mode and Temp 89018681) and the other the (Air Inlet 89018367). I called the dealer and the parts were 85-125. I got it From TBA Auto (local store) for 39.00. A 20 min job at most.
Pull out the cup holder till it stops. On either side of the frame you will see two lines. Place a long screwdriver in between these two lines and when it stops press inward to depress the tray stop. Repeat for the other side
Easiest is if you remove the ash tray/cup holder first and than push out the radio from the back.
1.Slide out ash tray/ cup holder to max.
2. Depress slides on top (both sides.
3. Remove 2 or 4 screws that hold radio in place.
