Replacing the center console arm rest latch

My latch on the top upper part of my center console broke. I thought I'd share how to fix it so others can benefit. This is from a 2009, I think the console on a 2006-2008 is a little different.

The part you need is 84661 3K000U7, should be the same part for 2006-2010. That part number might be specific for the dark grey. I got mine on Ebay for $20. I read somewhere that someone bought one at the dealer for $7.



First remove this trim piece. It was hard to remove, I used a pick and ended damaging it a little. It tilts out from the top. Maybe a thin metal pry bar like a butter knife, stuck into the top slot would work well.



This will reveal 4 screws that need removed.



Now remove the 4 screws holding the top lid together.



Then pry the bottom part of the lid out of there. It was in pretty tight.

Now you can remove the pieces of the old broken latch, and install the new one. It took me a while to figure out the spring orientation.

Mine broke as well, I just put two Velcro patches on and it holds just fine.

I know this is a little bit of an old thread, but thanks for digging it up. The bosslady is supposed to be buying a 2009 Sonata tomorrow. It has a broken upper console pad latch (and radio, and outer door handle, and inner driver's door handle). This original post will be a great help!

Click! Snap! Click! Snap! It is working again!

THANK YOU again for the post. I just finished replacing the center latch.

It is a 2009 Sonata, automatic transmission, OEM part number 84661-3K000-V2, (tan interior) retail $5.11.

If I may add a couple of tips:

1. Get a small flat head screwdriver (3/16" or so) and put a straw over the shaft. Move the seat(s) forward to gain clearance to work. Come in from the side to pop the plastic piece out. I scratched the black metal hinge doing without some piece to protect it. I think a straw would help protect it. The plastic piece has four latches on it. The inside of the plastic piece got a dent, but the outside looks OK.


2. Use an 8" shaft, Phillips #2 when trying to loosen the screws after popping the plastic piece off. It will keep the handle from bumping into the lower console, limiting the angle to get to the lower screws.

3. When you start removing the top piece, start at the end with the rectangle hole out. There are three snaps there, then maybe four more on each side. If you shine a bright light into the hole, you can see where the side latches start. I used a thin screwdriver as a pry bar to get down in there to move the latch in a little before pulling up. I just did a little bit at a time.

Again, thank you to zirconx for the original post!
