The button broke on the parking brake & the spring came out. Brake still works if you put spring in and pull up brake and hold spring down.

You'll have to replace the whole assembly. You'll have to remove the console to get it out. It will screws/bolts in the rear, in the box, under cup holder pads, on the sides, and up front. depends on your vehicle where the bolts are. This is every where I have found them.

Hi Ken, I'm glad to help! Ken I have removed so many of the center consoles on Intrepids, heck I can do it in my sleep. I'm not sure how far you have gotten removing it. But there are some hidden screws under the rear cup holder. Pull the rear seat cup holder out and there is one in the very front and 2 down inside the slot. Those are the only ones you need to remove the other screws simply hold the cup holder in. The rest of the removal is very easy. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Ken!

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....

Left side dash cupholder under the left side ac vent no longer springs out

The cup-holder jamming is a common problem for the RX.. this is usually caused by some distortion of the upper instrument panel. What is happening the the cup holder is being pinch and the spring force cannot over come the frictional forces. If you have it out, it could be as simple as adding some grease on the slide contact points.

You can try to pop off the register and cup holder assembly add reinstall it. It could change the positioning. The assembly is snapped in and held in place by locking tabs.

Car will not shift out of park

Happened to me, and I got stuck in a parking lot. In my case, I had to take apart the entire console to physically look at the shifter... there is a solenoid that should engage when you press the button on the shifter in order to shift out of park. For some reason, mine was rusted and would not move. I simply took it apart, cleaned it, sprayed it with lubricating & penetrating oil, and worked it by hand until it moved freely.
Solved the problem for good - it's now been 3 years since then. I also found that it may have been triggered by someone spilling a drink around the shifter from those terrible cup holders. That and I also found a very slow leak coming from the sunroof drainage hose that would leak from the overhead lights straight down to the shifter.... thanks Pontiac!
I hope this works for you... when I spoke with a dealer, it was supposedly upwards of a $600 repair to replace that entire assembly/solenoid.

Mouse in my heater , do I need to take apart center counsel, how is this done! And what else needs to come apart.

try setting a mouse trap up as it will become hungry and catch it but if a nest has been built you will indeed need to remove it .to prevent further issues .sometimes they are sheet metal screws others are riveted in but it should be a fairly easy job also the aid of a mirror and a flashlight will allow you to view that which you cannot see in some areas
