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.
