You are watching: Silverado center console latch and lid repair
The center console latch is made of a hard plastic that will soon break. Amazon has a replacement latch made of a nylon material that won”t ever break. It runs about $25 and you can see a how-too video on youtube. Otherwise the dealer makes you buy a whole lid for over $100. I replaced the latch in mine in about ten minutes.
Foe the love of godPost picturesMines been broken for two years, just couldn”t bring myself to pay dealer for one I know will break in another year.
Please name your parts correctly.Based on the pricing you gave, you do not have a console.You have a 3 cup jump seat.A console lid would cost well over $200
I posted the above after a 2 second search… I”m not sure if this is the part the OP is referring to but thought I”d throw it out there…EDIT: I searched for “console latch” and there are other GM options listed also so the true console, not jump seat latch could be there also.
Found it on AmazonSearched “center console latch”, filtered for my specific vehicle and “bam”, there it was.Thanks dude man OP, I completely gave up on it 2 years ago after finding out that the dealership only sold it as a $200 “single part”, even though it is two separate pieces, scam much GM??It is made of nylon instead of plastic, so I”m hoping it will last a lot longer than the OEM part, and 99% of the reviews raved about, 2 of them said it”s “just a piece of plastic, why did it cost $26”, clearly talking out of there ass.Long story short, it is out there it cheap, everybody who has purchased it loves it, and it is not the same easily broken piece that came on the trucks, which anyone who has one knows what happens when you get a phone charger out of the center console then hit the brakes before you shut it.Just thought of something, maybe they make a small hydraulic ram for it like the rear hatch of an SUV?!?
