    I just picked-up mine this afternoon and will be installing it on the weekend.

    When looking at the cup holder I do not understand why the two bottom console bolts needs to be removed.

    Do they really need to be removed?

    Thanks
    Daniel

    Yes, you'll have to remove them. They go through the tray/cup-holder. I thought the same thing, but they had to come out. No big deal, it only takes 30 seconds to remove them.

    I now understand, the 2ea 10mm bolts needs to be removed in order to be able to lift the rear of console to get access to the 2ea bolts that are holding the bottom of the cup holder tray.

    In order to facilitate the access to the 2ea bolts, I put a piece of 2x4 under the tray.

    It is easier if the 2ea bottom bolts are removed first and reinstalled last (that including the un clipping of the console rear section.

    In all it’s fairly easy to do... the most tedious part is the 2ea bottom bolts.

    For the life of me I couldn’t get the bottom Torx 20s back in so I just said oh well and left them off. It’s still really secure once all put back together.

    Just ordered this part from my local dealer. They initially quoted me $61 but were able to meet the ~$48 I was seeing it online.

    My 2018 JLR with leather has the rear cup holders. I think this might just apply to JLURs.

    I finally got around to doing this last week. Super easy (but those lower screws were a bit of a hassle to get off -- didn't bother putting back on :) ).

    If anybody else is interested in doing this, due to a mix-up with my initial order and then exchange vs. refund, I have an extra "rear console with cup holders" (6BN67TX7AC) that I need to sell. It's pretty light, so shipping shouldn't be too bad. Let me know.

    I did this install today. Sorry no photos, I was doing it between rainstorms. I found the bottom two are a pain, but if you have a tool case to rest the center console on it makes it a lot easier. If not wedge something about 2 inches wide under the console near the inner seat mount. It makes it a lot easier and no scrapped hands or wedged fingers.
