Hi, new to the forum so if I'm posting in the wrong spot; be kind.

Went to close my spring loaded cup holder door in my 2007 Acura RDX yesterday and the door snapped free and I heard the spring fall under the cup holder.  Not sure how to get the door out or the cup holder without taking the whole center console out.  Anyone know how to get to the spring and reattach to the cup holder door?

there are several electronic repair suppliers that will have the how to remove the dash board and components ...  a honda factory manual may also show it..

the important thing is to get the metal spring out before it shorts to something..

if it can be reattached...?????

and... yes .. on some cars.. you have to take the whole car apart...

the nice thing about hondas.. they come apart fairly easily.. if you know the secrets... or have a factory manual..   or will have the online take it apart info..

you can also sometimes get a parts print out from acura.. shows the dash in blow apart...
