Question about 2005 Chevrolet Uplander

Open Question

How do you replace the cupholder on a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander?

Our in-the-dash built in cupholder (takes the place of an ashtray) fell of the track in the back and then would'nt go back on the track. After much wrenching around with the cup holder I finally got it back on the track. Then some months later it came off again. This time I wrenched it around and squeezed the sides in to pull it out. Now I studied the track and it looks fairly basic. Don't know why it falls off. Also I need to know how to get it back in. I'm sqeezing the sides to get it in place but it takes a lot of squeezing. There's got to be a better trick. Maybe tip it up and then squeeze it? Maybe use a screwdriver on both sides to wedge it in? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

SOURCE: Low Coolant Light Staying on

This car has sensors on it. If the coolant tank is full and the system is working properly, then one of the sensors is bad.

Have the cooling system presure tested to make sure you have no leaks. If test is good, then look to the sensors.

GM has different systems for each car depending on configuration, so it is hard to point to the one that may be bad.

How to repair a ashtray in a 2004 Ford F-150 Crew Cab Lariat


This is more than likely because of a small pin that has fell out of the tracking device that allows the ashtray to spring open and then stay closed when you push it again.

Take a small ridge plastic tool to wedge the wood like trim off from around the stereo, and air conditioner controls. There are 6 clips, 3 on each side. Don't disconnect anything. It not necessary. Two small screws hold the ashtray in place remove these and remove the ashtray from the dash. Look down inside the inner console to see if you can find the small pin that is missing. Good luck with that. I couldn't find mine. Examine the open/close mechanism and see if you can find some that will work lying around the house. I had to make mine. I used a small stainless steel Allen bolt. Cut it to length, filed it down so the point would track through the open/close maze, gave it test run, hot glued into place, and reinstalled. Works like a champ.

Oh oh and just in case you are wondering, Ford doesn't make parts for parts.

Replace dash cupholder


Hi. This is an easy do. With the cup holder fully extended, slide a flat puddy knibe into the top **** between the cupholder and the the dash. slide it side to side to disengage the stops that are part of the cupholder while pulling out lightly on the cupholder. It should come out without much effort. To reinstall, just push the replacement cupholder into the slot. Good luck!

Ashtray won't stay closed. how to remove ashtray assembly


The trim panel around the radio / HVAC controls needs to be removed to get to the screws.

To remove the trim panel, open the ash tray and pull on each lower corner. There are 3 spring clips on each side holding the trim in place. The 1st time you do this, they are a bit hard to pull out.

The black circles in this picture are where the spring clips are

If you can just hang the panel to the side or have someone hold it, you can get to the 2 screws on the top of the ashtray assembly ( there are just above the black sides of the ash tray in the picture above ). The ash tray is pulled out and down, it is farther in the dash than it looks. Once out, you can take a look at the springs on the side / back that hold it in, to see if they broke off or fell off.

How to repair cup holder and spring under radio? picture???


94-99 luminas i think are all the same as far as the dash and the console etc.... At any rate i ran into this problem so i can tell you what to do.
#1 Remove the ash tray by pulling it out n pressing the silver tab down while pulling it completely out of the dash
#2 Remove the four 9/32 nuts around the perimeter of the black metal housing that held the ashtray in place
#3 there are 2 more hidden 9/32 nuts right under the trim piece under the stereo. If you aren't careful you will bust ur dash apart and have to replace this all. The easy way i did it was i pulled out the broken cupholder and sawed it in half then pushed it back in so i gained easier access to the bolt locations as they are quite hidden, next pull up the bottom right corner of the radio trim piece on the dash and keep it propped with a flathead screwdriver and remove the final 2 nuts. Twist loose the cigarette lighter hookup, bend back the 2 tabs holding the old cupholder in the track to remove it and ur ready to re-install ur new cupholder

How do u get the wood part around the cd player off in a 2000 diamante


1. Put on the emergency brake and put the transmission in neutral (key must be on, brake must be pressed). Having the shift lever in neutral allows the console to clear it.

2. Remove the front cupholder by pulling it up and out. Set it aside in safe place so you won’t accidentally scratch or break it while continuing your job.

3. Clean out the coin compartment and leave the door open.

4. The console trim pieces are held in place with metal clips. Reach through the opening at the rear of the coin compartment and pull up on the lower console trim until it unsnaps. Continue to unsnap the lower console trim, rear to front. It hooks into the ashtray, so don't try to pull it up from there. Once you have unsnapped the trim from the console, it will pull back and out from the ashtray. Lift the lower console trim up and disconnect any wiring connectors, then remove it up and over the shift lever. Set it aside in a safe place.

5. Put the car back into park for now (key on, press brake, shift, then remove the key).

6. Reach under the bottom of the whole ashtray unit (not just the ashtray) and pull it back towards the rear of the car until it unsnaps, but don’t completely remove it yet. Remove the wiring connector from the ashtray and set the ashtray aside in a safe place.

7. Next, you are going to remove the center vent unit just above the AC controls. If your model has a thumbwheel on the left side of the vent unit, you must first unhook the cable. Use a light to look under the dash from the driver's side, find the end of the cable, unclip it and unhook it from the peg. If you have a problem identifying the cable, move the thumbwheel up and down while looking under the dash and you can see the cable end moving. Remember how it was installed so you can reconnect it later.

8. Now comes the hard part. Work your fingers into the area of the center vents just below the digital clock lens. Unsnap the vent unit by pulling it out towards the rear of the car. It may take some pulling, so be careful. Once the center vent unit unsnaps, remove it from the dash and set it aside in a safe place.

9. You now can see the upper and lower mounting screws for the center unit. Remove the screws, being careful not to drop the screws inside of the dash.

10. Carefully pull the center unit out a bit from the dash. You will have to disconnect all the wiring and a tube before you fully remove it.

11. Disconnect the wiring from emergency flasher, and pull the AC temperature sensor breather tube off.

12. Disconnect all the connectors from the AC unit and the radio. Use a flat blade screwdriver to press the tab on those connectors with one. The screwdriver will also help you pry those connectors out of their sockets. Remember how everything was connected so you can put it back later.

13. Once you have the connectors disconnected the center console unit can be removed from the dash. Set the unit face down on a soft surface and remove the screws that hold the trim in place. The radio is mounted by screws that go into each side.

14. Reassembly is the reverse of the above steps. Be careful to not overtighten any of the screws, or they may strip out their mounting holes.

How to take dash apart to get to the radio


The moulding around the radio removes quite easily. Remove the ashtray, 2 screws. Remove the slideout cupholder. 2 screws. The moulding around the radio pulls straight out. It has slideout or popout clips. Once that is removed, unscrew the 2 10 mm or philips screws that hold the radio in. Slide out the radio, another 10 mm ground screw on back, then unplug the antenna, 2 electrical connectors and that's it. I dont recommend an aftermarket radio without a schematic or someone that knows what they're doing. Like in the chiltons books, "reverse disassembly procedure to reassemble". Hope this helps
