Argh, I accidently broke the left plastic armrest console tab!

Okie, it's mostly my fault. I get irrirated when I pull up on the tab to access the storage bin, the upper bin keeps popping down when raised back at about 45 degrees. So I forcefully put pressure on it and then it snapped. . . This calls for my TSX's first major operation.

I put in the order for the plastic tab (actually I ordered both the left and the right tabs just in case the other one breaks in the future) at my Acura dealership. The parts just came in ($11 and change for both) so hopefully I'll get a chance to work on it this weekend. Wish me luck.

Here are the pictures of the broken tab and its replacement plus the spare.

I would guess that this is a prevalent defect -- I have exactly the same problem. Nothing has broken yet, but I've had a feeling it's just a matter of time. As far as I know, nobody had posted anywhere before about that problem of the upper bin.

And yes -- as Joker said, great to see you, Whatcham! But sorry it's about something like this!

Hi guys.

It's good to be back.

Been checking this site maybe couple times a week but been too busy with work and other things to post anything worth of value here.

Naw, I'm not sweating the fix. Hmmm, maybe I'll post the step by step directions during the fix incase others run into the same problem.

Please!
I have a feeling I'm next. Although your story might help me avoid it.

lol same here - I also think it is a question of time when it will break (by itself or as a result of a vigorous helping hand !)

I used to put coins in that small tray...can imagine what happen when the darn thing opens... :tardsmash

I always thought that was called a "map compartment."

Even though I've never seen a map there. :D

BTW.....ever saw gloves in the glove compartment? :lol:
