Hello Can anybody help with knowledge to remove the dash board wooden cover over the cup holder section?

the wooden panel is permanently open. I need also to remove that cup holder section to fix the central push out section which doesnt open. any help will be greatly appreciated

The workshop manual is not much help for this task. It simply says "gently unclip the storage compartment and cupholder unit, with the flap open."

A search on eBay as below gives a good photo of a removed unit :-

Renault VEL SATIS 3.0dci v6 Breaking – Pop out Cupholders Cup Holders & Tray

Item number of this auction is 361916408922 


The photo of the unit offered for sale seems to show 2 metal clips at the top on either end of the unit, which I assume can be freed by sliding a thin plastic pry tool in at the appropriate points, and you then wiggle the whole assembly out.


Hope this helps.
