Had to replace the lid due to an arm breaking. Pretty simple procedure to complete. You need to pop the covers above and below the rear vents in the console. About four screws to remove and then you can get to the arms of the lid....

Did you replace the lid with a new one from a dealership or was it from a salvage yard? Can you buy just the lid by itself?
I'm in the same boat you were in, broken hinge from leaning on it to much when I was working on things.

Rob you can get the lid by it's self and you have a few options:

Plain Caprice one - 92457011 - $250 list they are high.

G8 - 92256451 - $267

Leather feel one from the SS but I believe it has red stitching. GM PArt #92274667 - $270 list, at least it;s better than the plain plastic one.

Leather feel ones from AU same as SS one but come with silver stitching or Black stitching.

About $150 from various sources plus you have to add the high shipping.
Thats the one I got and the material is soooo soft. Very nice and worth the extra money.

They also make a sliding version that goes forward and covers the cup holders for those of us that have short mates and they occationaly drive our cars. This make it so their elbows do not go in the cup holders. A few of these on Ebay AU right now for about $70 US plus shipping if they offer it.

I have a factory one if you would like it for $50. Have a sliding one also that I was going to see about getting recovered. Dont think I am going to go that route now if anyone would like that I will work up a price. Have to see how much I got it for, cant remember.

Thats a good find, every junkyard G8 I've found near me, was missing the lid.

Steve, I'll keep in mind that you have one, but I've got some other things I need to get at the moment.
