How Do I Remove The Upholder Latch/door On Center Coslole?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I had a small flash drive in my upholder which now dropped behind the hinge of the latch/closer for the cup holders. I have a 2010 RX350. Now I can't open the latch all the way because the flash drive is blocking it. Is there any way to remove the hinge myself before bringing it to the dealer?

Thank you in advance,

GSY

Hi, i recently lost a hair clip in the same way you lost the jump drive. What did you end up doing?

Thank you.

Hi Jill,

I took a thin wire hanger and slipped it down the hinge area, jiggled it around a bit and eventually the flash drive shifted so it lies flat and the door now works completely fine. It took about 10 minutes to do this and it seems that I pushed to item back toward the armrest where there was more room for it to settle.

I did consult with Lexus and they confirmed that they would have to remove the entire center console to get it out so I am happy with this simple result. Good luck to you,

GSY
