Hi guys and Gals, question for those of you that have a 2017 XT5. Does your console have a spring that keeps the lid open, or does it just kind of fall down unless your arm is holding it? I don’t want to take it to the dealer if it’s functioning properly but nothing holds mine Open. If you could let me know that would be great! Thanks!

The console lid on my 2017 Platinum will stay open with enough hinge friction to keep it from falling. If I push it forward from the vertical position, it will slowly close until it is at about 10:00 at which point it must be pushed shut. The hinge is not binding, but quite smooth.

I wonder what’s up 2 platinum 1 up 1 down. I looked up the part and it shows a spring. I have a 2020 loaner (although many changes have been made) but it stays up. I feel like I’m constantly fighting for looking for things lol. I wonder if I bring it to their attention. Very interesting !

2017 Platinum here, and mine has no spring action and doesn't stay up at all when opened. Kind of irritating.
