    Well here I am again; and I may stand to be corrected. After carefully review of gmjunkie's post I did look again and I do not have this extra spring loaded cover on the ash tray but after carefully investigating the ash tray after removing once again I spotted two small holes on the side at the top that could have been for this small door. It has never been there since I've had it but appears there may have been something there at one time. I also am not sure it makes much since but I may want one NOW!!!
    Thanks gmjunkie I am sure glad you cleared this up, like they say pictures are worth a thousand words & You da Man 'Sure glad this got cleared up I thought I was going nuts or nuttser if that is a word

    Whew already, and uncle or ok maybe I was wrong, at least it appears that way Now how do I get one of these?

    Well, since we are working around in that area, does anyone have a floppy console door (the big door that covers the whole ashtray/lighter area)? By floppy I mean that it won't snap shut and stay all the way closed, but slightly pops back open just a tad.

    Mine stays open when I open it and stays closed wheh I close it. Why do you have a fix for it if it doesn't?

    While we're at it does anyone have the ash tray with the little door on it; since I've just recently found out that this was OEM I may want one now? I guess I could check with a local dealer to see if this item is still available.

    Thanks,

    I've only had my 2004 for two days now, so I have no idea about the great ash tray controversy, but I now have something I must check out! When I open the larger door, the ashtray is in plain sight with nothing seeming to cover it. So am I in the same boat hoosierdaddy and Scottnoxid or is there really a smaller lid that stays open but I have not seen it yet? Mystery to be solved after work!

    Thanks for the pics Junkman...I was getting really confused about the lid to the inner lid of the outer compartment to the console lid. Now I know what to look for.

    Good instructions and I will remember this if in fact I find one of these some place. Again I did not know there was a seperate lid for the ash tray, now I got to have one. It is a good place to keep change maybe.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    If you remove the ash tray you will see it right away, mine must have fallen off before I ever got the car, the spring clips are more than likely lossed in action in the center console some where, I am going to try and just buy the ash tray; or the lid but I would think it comes with the new ash tray, at anyrate I will check this out.

    Yep, mine does the same thing.

    And like gm says, it's supposed to be that way.

    All I can think of is that it was designed that way. The small door actually will snuff out any lit cigarettes that are left in the ashtray. If you only had the larger door it would allow the cigarette to continue burning.

    Good photos Junk. They are so good that they show the dust/lint on your console.
