    So my center console button for the lid popped off last night. Recovered the spring and the button and closed it again. But the button isnt secure in the lid. Did something else fly off or should I just go to the dealer?:confused:

    I had the same problem. I was able to find a lid from a guy scraping a wrecked truck.

    Dealers will only sell you the complete console. Not the lid or button.

    Yea its still under warranty but I didn't feel like having some "tech" replace my whole console when I came up with a better engineered fix.
