    Has anyone removed and replaced this piece of the console? If so, does it snap out without removing any other trim, and is there a special prying tool that's needed, or just yank it out? I have a 2019 LS Custom with no heated seats. Any advice would be appreciated before I break something taking it out. There are no repair manuals available for 2019's yet so I have no clue what holds it in. It is the piece that surrounds the cup holders under the climate controls. Thank You. console.jpg

    Should be the same as 2015-2018. What's the reason you are wanting to remove it?

    I spilled something on it and it ate into the top layer of finish. I can't seem to find any info on the removal process. I don't know if other panels need to come off first or if I can just remove and replace this while leaving everything else intact. I don't want to pry it off if something else needs to be removed first and break something.

    Start from bottom up, the 2 wood panels pop off, then screws under cup holder rubber etc etc but yeah like above 15-19 all the same.

    There lies my problem, I can't find on the internet anyone doing this on a 2015-2019 Tahoe/Suburban. The video is of a 2014 Sierra which is similar but not the same piece. If there is something different on the 2015+ Tahoe and I just start prying I'm concerned I'm going to break something. The other post mentions screws under the cup holder, I don't have any screws that I can see under the rubber. There are lots of videos online changing out the console door but I can't find step by step instructions on if there is an order of parts removal to get this out. In looking at it it seems like it should come out like the 2014 Sierra but the side panels are different and without putting my eyes on it I don't know if there are tabs holding it behind any of the other pieces. I don't want to start prying on it until I can find someone who has removed this exact piece on a 2015 plus Tahoe/Suburban. The one video I did find had the guy replacing some other part but he removed practically all the dash panels before getting to this. I don't know if that is necessary to just remove this as he was I believe removing the section above it also. I am pretty good at Googling and I can't find what I'm looking for, which is why I figured my chances were better on this site which is year and vehicle specific. Thanks. cupholder.jpg

    From another post on here that I found. This is what I was thinking, there might be tabs behind stuff that is gonna break if you don't know the procedure. I ordered a repair manual from 2015-2017 hoping it's abouth the same. Going to be some time before I receive the manual and the part so maybe someone on here that has done this will chime in before then. Thanks.

    Thanks. I'm hoping I can just remove the piece I need to by itself. I will see when the part arrives if there are any tabs that require removing the drivers side panel.
