How do I remove the center console cup holder in my Lexus RX350?

Asked by Jan 27, 2015 at 02:33 AM about the 2010 Lexus RX 350 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The cup holder door won't open all the way.  I think something slid down between the
door and side of cup holder (I think it was an earring) . I want to remove it. Can anyone
show me a video or give good instructions on how to do this?

My Ipod ended up in the same place, it's kicking my butt trying to get at it without breaking anything.

It seems that the screws holding in the plastic covering over the cup holder loosens over time and falls into the space forward of the opening creating a stop when opening or closing. Eventually the screws fall off but it leaves the plastic piece unattached to the metal section holding everything together there. I haven't yet figured out how to take it apart to put the screw back in. So, the plastic covering is off and I just don't close the cover for the cup holder. Stays open because it is rather unsightly. A replacement for the whole console costs around $600 at the dealership. I have all the pieces but figure they'll just try to sell me on a whole new console instead of trying to fix it.
