Has anyone had a problem with the rear drawer of the center console sticking closed??? I cannot get to the 12. v outlet because the drawer will not release. I am concerned that I might break the plastic if I try to force it too much. Any ideas???

Maybe something is caught in it or the gear has broken. I think to access it you need to take the center console apart. I looked on All Data, but can only find instructions on removing the front ash tray...sorry.

Both front & back drawers are known to get stubborn. The ashtray can be released with a sharp slap to the right side of the console. That might work for the rear ashtray, too.

Okay, thanks for the tips. I will try them and see what happens.

Tried the suggestions and finally gave up as nothing worked. Took to dealer and they replaced the drawer with a new one. No cost to me - all covered under bump-2-bump warranty.
