Great find! If only there's a simpler way to replace it other than having to remove the center console to do it

Thought Id post an update, I managed to replace it using exactly this method.

You just need quite a lot of patience and accept that your fingers will hurt the rest of the day

My best tip would be to have a very strong hairdryer, or even better a heat gun.

Thanks for posting an update. I just completed yanking mine out the other day and had to do it in multiple pieces using a razor blade to section it out. What a PITA! For now, I'm OK with no lid over the cup holder. I may attempt to replace it one day if and when I get bored.
