Has anyone been able to get a part number of a 2012 Escalade and order the new center console lid with a tray on top?

Murphy- All the new 2012 models now have the tray lid. However, it seems that nobody can figure out the correct part numbers for the different interiors yet.

Murph,

This is probably what yours looks like (of course yours is much cleaner) , 2nd pic is standard interior black, 3rd is platinum black interior lid

Even with the vin from the standard model (2nd pic) the part comes up as a platinum lid cover, don't know how that is possible

If you want the black and platinum (ebony) it would be a 12', that is the first time the platinum has a black interior, I gave Chris my vin so he should be able to order that part, if you want to post a pic of the underside of the lid I can see if it apears to match, I don't have my 07' here just 12's

Yes, my junkie cell phone... So, it doesn't go flying off the console when I turn, accelerate or brake.

Anyway... I still can't believe they don't have the part number figured out for this. Anyone at GM reading this??? Pull your head out of your ass...

stater02
12-22-11, 01:01 PM
Comon K9, that wasn't necessary....

Would the part number be visible anywhere, maybe on the underside? If so, I'll run to my dealership today to peek in their 2012 and get it for us.

K9Caddy
12-22-11, 02:30 PM
Stater-

If you've been following this thread and the many others, you'd realize GM has only ONE part number for all of these console lids. Their books are skewed on the part numbers.

Cadillac Cust Svc
12-22-11, 02:38 PM
25902017 , 25902016, 15941534 Those are the part numbers that I found for the center console of the 2012 Escalade. You will want to double check with your dealer to see if they will fit your vehicles and to ensure that those are the parts that you are looking for. Keep me posted!

The Denaili lid is the same as a basic tahoe lid which is the same as a 2008 H2 lid. Too big. You don't want that.

Just swapped my ebony lid for the new one in my ESV. Looks nice with my heated/cooled cup holders. Of course, my wife says that her arm slips into the slot sometimes. Holds her phone well though. Can't never make them happy...

RippyPartsDept
01-07-12, 12:03 PM
there's a few different part numbers (for the different colors) and different configurations
lately it seems that you have to buy the upper and lower portions of the armrest (basically the whole armrest assembly)
i'm not sure why that is but the only part that has been available lately is the whole armrest

the best thing to do is get the VIN from a truck that has the lid you want (in the correct color) and I can look it up for that car and get that one for y'all

i've ordered and delivered one to a forum member already and have a second one on order right now

I just placed my order for one through, Chris. I recommend giving this guy a call, as he is a very knowledgable guy to speak with.

The dealer near me will go internet/wholesale prices for me, but I do have to pay tax on them. Not a bad deal and some stuff has been a really good deal as well. That was where I got all of my accessories for me ext, since the cadi dealer wouldn't work with me on the accessory prices, I went to the chevy dealer instead. I spent over 1000 for accessories, bed rug, chrome tow hooks, carpeted floor mats(catch alls), the seat cover for the rear seat to protect them when they are down, chrome exhaust tip and battery cables for second battery. Also still plates, step plates and cargo nets.

hey I am new to this website but I was wondering if i could get the new center console in my 2008 escalade? like would it fit right? and is it easy to install, i have not done any mods to my car so is this going to be hard or really easy?

cadmanchris
01-12-12, 10:02 PM
Big Windy and deeeejj. The lid/ armrest bolts right up. Just remove the rear control head in the back of the console. It comes off by removing the 2 Phillips screw once you open the rear cup holder. The top of the control head is held by clips, so a flat screw driver or a trim tool can remove it. Once that is off, there are 5 Phillips screws that hold the whole armrest in. Remove those 5 screws and pull the armrest upwards. It's pretty easy.

It fits '07 and up.

I understand what you are saying and it is a lot of money when you have a perfectly good lid on your console, but after owning many of these trucks without the "pocket" in the lid, and now having it on 3 of my 4 trucks, not planning on putting one on the 07' I picked up, it is great for holding my phones, yea it's not that I am important but do carry more than one phone, it keeps you from putting items on the ashtray/cupholders and scratching that fake plastic wood. :( It also keeps my iPhones off the floor. You could alway sell your old lid on e-bay to defer costs :)

you'll have to call in and pay with a credit card (we don't take paypal, sorry)

If you need a platinum vin PM me

not sure how, but i missed this earlier ... if you want to PM me a platinum VIN that would be cool ... it would at least confirm what i've been saying here based on my looking at the catalog without using a VIN (which basically shows all the options)

my parts catalog calls the interior color code (RPO 41I) for the platinum "Cocoa"

shipping will be about $15 for you

and i don't have any pics ... a few have purchased though
(i think i've sold three in the past two weeks)

Cocoa is the other interior, there are tow options with the platinum, cocoa (brown) and ebony (black) :) The vin number is for a platinum with ebony (black) 2012 in your PM

...Just came across this thread....

I have a Platinum Escalade, so I've always had the tray. The irony is that I could never use it!

Anytime I decide to put a phone or wallet there, inadvertendly, my girlfriend or I would open the lid, and the contents fly into the backseat!

It's nice and all, but I have learned never to put anything there, lest I want to find it in the backseat! :)

yeah i thought that the platinum didn't have the wood and had that aluminum insert

so I went back to my parts catalog and I put your '12 platinum VIN back in and looked again

the complete assembly still is coming up with the non-platinum version but just the lid comes up with a ULT (platinum) RPO code

so it looks like the platinum assembly is either not available as the full armrest assembly and only available as the lid top or there's a catalog error not showing the platinum assembly

the platinum ebony lid top is #22761790

BUT

that part number isn't a good number that I can order ... it's coming up as "not an active part" ...

so the platinum armrest is still a mystery ... hmmm

01-17-12, 08:19 PM
hey so i have the 2008 escalade is it possible to just get the lid or will it not fit? and if i could how much would just the lid cost?

im asking that because i read somewhere that all you need to get is a extender or something to make the new lids fit?

RippyPartsDept
01-18-12, 12:49 AM
There is a new design latch asm. The middle panel. New lids won't fit your first design latch. So you'll have to get the whole asm. The split was mid-2009 by build date so you're guaranteed to have a first design latch.

RippyPartsDept
01-18-12, 02:41 PM
at first the help line guy at GM was saying that there is no complete assembly for the platinums

i coaxed him to check again and he came back saying that the part number that was saying that it was just the platinum top lid was actually the full assembly for the platinums

#22761790 is the ebony platinum armrest assembly
forum discount price is $215.45 plus shipping ... BUT there's no stock available

they're obviously building platinum escalades with these armrests in them so there technically is some stock at the factory but that stock is not available to dealers ... BUT if I were to place an order for one using the VIN from a 2012 platinum we might be able to get one

now, you can't go ordering a whole bunch using the same VIN (for sort-of-obvious reasons) but it does look like that is what will have to happen to get the platinum armrests ... FOR NOW. Eventually there will be stock available at the parts warehouses and you won't have to do an end-around to get one of these
so for the time being that's how it will be if you want one asap

...

fyi the same thing happened with the regular escalade armrests and it took about two months for the part to become available

GM just wants to make sure that they have enough parts to build the vehicles they plan on building
and they don't really anticipate people needing to replace them this soon
so you guys trying to do upgrades and swap outs have to deal with the hassle to get what you want
small price to pay, i guess

#2 is the latch/middle panel

i'm not sure exactly what you're asking but it sounds like your asking if your 2007 will fit a new lid (#1)
the answer to that is no... the latch/middle panel and the lid were both redesigned... so the new lid won't fit on an old panel

you could get both a #1 and a #2 but it's much easier to just replace the whole thing

#3 is the bottom half that you can't really get alone... the armrests that we've been talking about in this thread are the whole assembly (everything in the illustration)

and they fit all years of this body-style (which goes back to 2007 year model)

so you'll be fine with the part number discussed earlier (22796245)

Just installed mine this weekend...it's great! I did find out that you really on have to take out 7ea. screws. When you lower/open the rear cup holder you'll see the 2 screws that secure the base of the DVD control face. Take those 2 screws out, then slighty pull up on the base of the control face to lift the back above and over the lower panel. Then just pop the left and right clip, then the 5 screws holding the console cover in.

currently the black/ebony armrest on backorder
due to the limited quantities available GM is only using the ones being made on new trucks being made

if you actually have a 2012 and need a replacement GM will get you one but it will probably be the whole center console assembly that you will have to get in order to get just the console lid (armrest)

i would suggest that anyone interested in buying one should remember to get in touch with me every couple weeks to check if they have come off of backorder

(i'm not sure if the cashmere ones are still available, i'd have to check)

Hi guys!
Hoping you can help me out here...
I have a 2008 Platinum Edition Escalade, so it has the center console with the tray, that's a little different than the regular Escalade.
It's the brown one, with french stitching. There is no woodgrain on it.

In any case, my top latch broke! The latch is on piece #1, but piece #2 is also screwed up.

My dealer said the part has been discontinued. Is this true? I can't get my center console fixed?!
It's a pain, since I have to hold open the top part when I open the bottom part, or everything falls out!

Rippy... Anyone... What would I have to order to get this straightened out?

Thanks so much!

I see the part # for this is 22796246. Is the color a match though? I see some people discussing it, but no one could confirm I don't believe. I haven't seen one picture of a cashmere one, with wood grain, and the "phone holder" area in the middle.

I see this on Ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2012-OEM-CADILLAC-ESCALADE-CENTER-CONSOLE-LID-22796246-/261048154721

Even though it says it's the part # I listed above, it doesn't have the holder in the middle of the lid like the pictures in this thread.

I really need a new armrest/center console..mine looks terrible and that holder area in the middle of the lid is ideal.

Mine came in today and the technician at Hennessy Cadillac in Atlanta had it installed in 15 minutes. It looks really nice and the groove is perfect for quick storage of my phone.

Hennessy Cadillac in Duluth Ga. They have a great service department. Mine was warranty work and it took a couple of weeks to arrive. But I am sure they can sell you one as well through their parts department. Shannon Moore is the guy that helped me out.

they can pull some strings to get a warranty part that they can't pull to get an upgrade ... Hennessy probably ended up getting the whole console for you (that's how our last one came in)

the supplier is only supplying the factory making the consoles and GM is not routing any to warehouse stock (yet)

so far i have not been able to get a firm date from GM on when they expect stock in the parts warehouse

It was warranty and it was black/ebony. Makes sense about not allowing any for general sale until all the warranty work orders are completed.

Yeah GM sends the whole console assembly... cupholders, rear ac/radio control ... the whole assembly
then they credit you for the difference between the assembly and the part you ordered

they'll only do it for warranty or new model issues - i had one that was a 2012 but not warranty (customer scratched it up)

Chris,

Will these new consoles fit a 2007 Cadillac EXT? I need the cashmere(light tan)/wood grain one, but I haven't seen one picture of one of those in this thread.

RippyPartsDept
07-23-12, 09:58 AM
as far as I know there are only three armrests and there is no difference between these except for the color
there is cashmere (tan), ebony (black), and cocoa (brown)
cashmere and ebony are for the non-platinum escalades and have woodgrain trim on top
cocoa is the platinum interior color and has a brushed aluminum trim on top

I just checked and it looks like the cashmere is now on backorder also as well as the ebony

IgotGAME
07-23-12, 02:42 PM
Well if a 2012 Cashmere one will fit a 2007 Escalade EXT then I definitely want to order one of those. I don't think the color has changed since 2007 although I see some people talking about it. I really want to change to one that has the storage area on the arm rest which is perfect for cell phones and what not. Do we have to wait until it is in stock before I can call you to order one?

07-23-12, 03:54 PM
IgotGAME, I do seem to recall a slight difference in the cashmere colors now that you mention it (maybe even earlier in this thread?) i just checked again and 2007-2008 cashmere is RPO 30I while 2009+ cashmere is RPO 39I ... i know it will fit for sure but the color will probably not match perfectly

anhandrew, it should have come in today and shipped out this afternoon - i'm looking into what's going on with it right now - i'll be in touch

RippyPartsDept
07-23-12, 04:02 PM
Ok Anh, it looks like something weird happened where it was on backorder until today. I guess I could have mis-read the status when you placed your order and seen it as in stock when it was really 'not-yet-in-stock' (but about to be)

GM told me that it was shipping out today which means i'll get it on friday (most likely)

I'll be in touch if it gets here sooner... sorry about the mix-up

Chris

I've looked at some consoles on 2009's, 10's, 11's in cashmere and honestly I can't see a difference between them and my 2007. If there is a difference, it must be a very slight difference.

I think I will order one anyway and just see for myself, but they aren't in stock right now correct?

RippyPartsDept
07-24-12, 10:37 AM
yeah there's a backorder on the black and cashmere armrests

IgotGAME
07-24-12, 04:05 PM
Chris,

Could I go ahead and order it and you would send it when it comes back in stock or do we have to wait for it to cone back in stock?

RippyPartsDept
07-24-12, 04:49 PM
it is possible to do that, but there's a good chance that the price (and/or part number) will change when it comes off of backorder and I would hate to have to contact you after you've already paid and ask for more money for the balance

i hope you can understand that predicament ... if it was a normal backorder situation i wouldn't really worry about this but they've already done this once when the part first became available on the 2012s

Looks like they are possibly coming off of backorder ... GM isn't showing how many are in stock at the warehouse, just a "Y" for yes that they have them in stock.

RippyPartsDept

Chris,

I need the cashmere(light tan) one. As long as we know it will fit a 2007. I am taking my chances on a color match, but from what I saw it can't be much different. Plus my arm rest lid is looking rough after 5 years. So please order at least one of those and I will call you.

and for everyone else... just to be clear - the black and tan (ebony and cashmere) armrest console lid assemblies have come off of backorder and are available to order

there are no quantity numbers available for the warehouse stock (yet) but there will be soon (hopefully - usually there will be)

it looks like the pricing has not changed $211.11 plus shipping

If you would like to place an order give us a call (contact info in my post signatures - if you can't see my signatures let me know)

The 07 cashmere is more yellowish than the 09 up units. You will notice it when they are side by side, believe me, I compared. Also, the wood grain is a little different shade in the 07-08 models. Just my two cents.

as long as we can re-seal the box up as if it has never been opened then we can return it to GM

I can only order euro parts if they are warehoused in the US (export vehicles)

if they are built overseas and not technically exported to europe then i probably can't even look up the parts

these 'export' parts are non-returnable since i GM won't let me return them (because i have no business ordering them in the first place)

Well guys I got my cashmere colored console in from Rippy Parts (thanks Chris!) and installed it on my 2007 Cadillac EXT.

Here are some photos and a couple of notes:

1 - Do the colors match 100%? No, but it's close enough for me considering how bad my old arm rest looked which you can see in the photos. My old one was pretty messed up.
2 - Does the wood grain match? Yes the wood grain matches really well.
3 - It's super easy to install and here are the steps I took (took me 15 mins):
- Lower rear cup holder and remove 2 screws in the middle just below rear aux/vent area.
- After removing screws, lift up on the area where the rear aux/vents are so that the screw holes you just removed the screws from pop out and over the area they were behind.
- Expert Techinque here, grab a butter knife and pull the rear aux area towards you a little (it should be loose now that it isn't behind the cup holder area) and worked the butter knife up the right side until the clip pops out. Do the same on the left hand side then just pull the area out.
- Remove 5 screws, lift old arm rest out, put new arm rest on and tighten down.
- When putting the back piece back on, put the bottom in first so that the 2 screw holes for the cup holder area go back behind the plastic like they were before you removed the screws, then just pop the top clips in. Make sure all wires are out of the way of the vents.

That's it guys. Nothing to it. Lifting the rear aux/vent area so that the 2 screw holes from the cup holder area pop out and in front of the area they are currently behind does take a little bit of muscle.

The only people that would notice the color difference are us because we've looked at our trucks so much. I took the pictures with all the doors open as well to get as much light as would be possible in the truck to try and show the color difference. Color difference wouldn't be noticeable without all the light.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I'm actually really pleased with this mod. I was on the fence because it's not really a necessary expense but it is really updates the interior and makes for a nice change. My old console was loosey goosey but the new console is very solid. I also believe there is more room inside the new edition.
