Removing Center Storage Comp. & Cupholder/Coin Tray

Hi all,

Yes, I admit its been a long while since I've been here, but I know where my bread is buttered with respect to my Ody. ;-)

I have a problem: I got a parking card for a new garage that I'm parking in, stuck it on the top of my cupholder/coin tray, then slid the "drawer" in.

I came to a red light, stopped, and heard a "click". I pulled the tray out and...*Voila*! The card is gone like magic!

Okay, so it slid over the top and into the back recesses somewhere in there.

I need to figure how to remove that cupholder/coinholder tray so I can feel around and grab my parking card. Perhaps also remove the center "storage bin" below it.

Can anyone help me as to the secret procedure for doing so?

Apparently there's a locking tab somewhere ehind the cupholder. And it looks like you will need a flat scredriver to unlock it. Here's Handa instructions on how to install the accessory ahtray:

Or you could also remove the radio headunit. Once it's it out you should be able to see what's behind the cupholder. Good Luck!

Nestor's right on. I removed it a while back but it was hard to see the tab. It is at the bottom rear edge when you slide the tray open, at the middle if I remember right. Hard to see. And the printed instructions don't really point to the correct spot.
