Rear seat cup holder replacement

Many of you know that the rear cup holders on these Jeeps are weak and prone to failure. When I purchased mine it was broken, and part of the sales agreement was they would give me the parts to replace it. Here are the steps required to replace them:

Remove lower rear seat. There are two bolts which retain the assembly, remove them and the seat comes out by pulling up and forward.




The cup holder has screws in the following locations:


Remove the cup holder assembly by sliding the old one out.

Slide the new cup holder in, replace the screws and reinstall the seat. Final result:


(I didn't think to take pictures while I had the seat apart, but I hope this still helps someone doing the same job)

The hardest part was getting the old cup holder's "Pins" to pop. Oh and it was nice having a torque wrench to remove those seats.

Good way to ruin you torque wrench. Better to use a breaker bar. If you have no other option, at least set your torque wrench above the torque on the bolt, or all the way up, before you use it to remove the bolts.

Not my torque wrench. If my father thought something would of happened to his professional grade tool, I'm certain he wouldn't of used it.

I would like to admit that once again I am an idiot. We didn't use a torque wrench, we used an impact drill. I'm new to this whole being a "man".

Average price right now seems to be about $140..
PN varies by your trim code.. ex: 1BG491D1AA ... 1BG491DVAA ... 1BG491J8AA

I would HIGHLY suggest trying junk/scrap yards first!

Mine is broken, I just bought a 2 cup cupholder with center bin, and screwed it down to the carpet in the back seat area right behind the center console. Its nice and tight and is easy to use from the front too. And it is not in the way in the back seat area.
