It looks to be sealed. I tried to get pics of it.

Awesome, thanks for clarifying. I think this also concludes why the cupholder is not removable since the LED appears to be integrated and not just a lense for a light mounted below it.

I just replaced mine yesterday and shot some footage of how to do it. I can share the link once the video is up if anyone wants. i bit the bullet and just ordered a new one versus trying to push it back in. Expensive mistake

Yes please link the vid...I'm thinking of adding more light(tapping what is there) into them, would be a plus to know what you did!

Agree! Please post that link! Wondering if dimming LEDS could be tapped to that as well to create better in-cabin ambient lighting that the sports "lack" using the factory dial.

Thanks!

I use one of those keyboard cleaning wads of gel. Shove it in and it squishes out to fill the cracks and crevices. Then wipe down with a damp cloth or armor all wipe.

My buddy was going to edit the clips together but hasn't gotten a chance to. I'll try to throw them together tomorrow and get it online

Mopar sells part #8675309 CUP HOLDER REMOVAL TOOL KIT $13.95 Included are the kit and a full color picture manual on how to use the tool properly. I used it to remove mine and I would give it 3 out of 4 stars. It was a little heavy.

You bought the JLU cupholder removal tool. Here's the difference compared to the JL removal tool. Mine is much lighter:like:

I recall pulling off my 2018 cup holder liner to clean a few months after purchase. After discovering it shouldn't have come out I simply put it back and carefully pushed all the rubber edges back under the plastic edge. Not for a second did I consider replacing the entire console piece. If your careful you can perfectly reinstall the liner.

I tried but didn’t like how it looked and couldn’t get the broken tab in enough so I replaced it. glad you got it back though!

I’m so pissed about this, it’s supposed to be removable and we will see how it looks once I work it back in... can’t believe my wife’s water bottle spilled in there! I had to use a cheese spreader to attempt a fix, still looks like garbage now.
