I see the cupholder TSB, but I don't see how it could work


Recommended Posts

Hi. On a 2000 C2, with the electrical climate control on top, radio just below it, then the extra CD holder thingy (which i don't need), then an oddments tray (AKA cubby hole). I want to install cupholders but I have a few questions. It says the electric climate control is to be relocated to the very bottom (where the cubby hole is now). but when i measure that space, it is smaller than a standard DIN slot, it doesn't look like the climate control will fit there. Also, how do you remove all this stuff? Is there a good dash trim removal DIY that shows how to remove the necessary parts? Any help is appreciated.

I just did that mod myself about a month ago. I have a 00 C4, and it fit perfect. There is a surround piece that goes around the cubby. Once that is removed, you'll have the space you need. Also, you have to re-route the wires to the climate control thru the slot in the back of the bottom cubby. Just remove the bottom cubby and you'll have a better idea of how to do it. Also, select the correct size mug or you will spill some. Not perfect, but it works well when you get the right size mug.

Thanks. I'm very glad to hear you were actually able to do it. I'm going to tackle it in a few days.

Oh, one other question: did you have to remove the shift knob and/or center console at all?

I am attempting this too. I am not quite there yet, but you can take the dash console apart without removing the shifter knob or tranny console. You do need to remove the carpet and leather side panels (on both sides of the dash console) and everything else comes out easily.

As for your original question; you can find a technical service bulletin on this site, if you become a contributing member. The TSB does a good job of describing how things come apart, but...

In spite of the TSB I am having problems. I have the lower console out of the car, but the AC unit doesn't want to fit in the bottom slot without forcing it. So, I am not able to get the AC unit to seat properly in the lower unit. Assuming I can resolve that issue it looks like I will need a new AC trim piece.
