I have fixed the break up point and sticked the metal rods with glue in the holes where they should be and now I...

    The center console with the armrest between the front seats. When I open the lid/arm rest there is an insert to hold stuff. How do I pull that out? Brute force? It looks like there are clips on the end towards the rear of the car, I'm not sure if there are also clips at the front.

    This started a while back. When I insert the key and turn it CCW to unlock, the key doesn't spring back to the vertical position on its own. When I turn it CW it does. Anyone else encounter that and have a fix for it? Is this a sign of some epic fail up ahead? Background: a long while ago I...
