I have succumbed to the fact that I do not know how to fix this small nuisance of a problem that I just started having, and so, I've decided to see if anyone here might be able to provide some guidance.

The little cover in the rear console that covers the cigarette lighter / AUX connections has stopped locking shut in the closed position. I tried lubricating around the hinged areas as best as I could but that hasn't resolved the problem.

Is there a way to remove just the cover to inspect the hinge assembly? Or does the entire cigarette lighter / AUX component need to be removed from the rear center console? If so, how does one go about doing this?

Got the same frustrating problem. But it’s low on my priority list.

The lid is part of the end cap sub-assembly (not including the wood trims).

This is quite a common issue and you'll need to source either a new or good used sub-assembly.

The entire center console has to be removed to allow access to the screws which hold the part in place. Once you remove the wood trims, it'll "feel" like the sub-assembly will unclip but, unfortunately, there are a couple of torx head screws which retain it too.

There are online videos from powerful uk ltd on you-tube showing how to remove the console and replace the faulty part.

Thanks for the video link, Rob. I tried searching online for a video but I guess I just didn't know what keywords to use. I really should've figured that PowerfulUK would have a vid on this!

Has anyone else successfully repaired this cover? Or is replacing that bezel assembly the only viable solution?

Depending on the complexity and cost of this fix, I may relegate it to the lowest of priority on my "to do" list as well! :neutral:
