SOURCE: An Item Has Fallen Into The Space Behind The Cup Holder? Help.

I recently had to retrieve a small object (camera battery) that was dropped in the cup holder. The battery allowed the cup holder to close properly, but it would not allow the cup holder to open all the way, making the cupholder useless. Getting access to remove the object was quick and easy - all it takes is a small flat blade screw driver. Use the screw driver to gently pry up the wood trim panel in front of the cup holder. Be sure to pull it up evenly from both sides and it will pop out of its retaining sockets. You'll then have the access you need. When you've finished, just realign the wood trim piece and tap it back into place. You can see a picture of where to pry at

SOURCE: I need to get under the cup holder section of the console

I hate to be the berrer of bad news but unless you can sneek a grab at it from the side you will need to remove the whole console. I would try some of those 4 jaw flexible pincher grabbers most parts stores would cary them.

Try using a hangar under the ash tray to pull anything out that may be under there.

Where to plug in the autoscanner

Depends on the vehicle manufacturer, where they put it? The socket is an OBD 2 like the diagram. Usually inside the vehicle near the fuse box could be under the dash or behind a panel, cup holder, ash tray, or between the front seats, might say in the handbook, if not ask at a dealership. a86768ca-d626-4168-88f3-398e775fc9e8.gif

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

A4 2007 coin fallen behind ash tray,can undo ash try but will not come all the way out and will now not go back into place, any help

You will probably end up having to break the ashtray to get it out. This happens on most cars when ppl use the ashtray as coil holders. Just pull really hard and rip the tray out, see if you cause any damage. Sorry, but this is the only way ive done it in the past.

Radio removal 1995 dodge ram pickup

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!

1996 Honda Accord. Want to replace radio. How to access?

Start with the rear console. Two screws on the sides, then open the console and pry up the plate in the bottom.   Remove the screws under the plate.  Pull emergency brake lever. Remove cup holder insert. Three more screws to remove. Now the console will come out when you lift it and pull it back out of the clips. Next remove the ashtray. One screw behind the ash tray two more for the cover. Disconnect wires. the stereo is accessible.
