How to remove ashtray door?
I was fooling around with putting some stickers on, I slapped one onto the little flapper astray door, then took it off. Now its got this wad of gunk/glue stuck there, and I can't get rid of it. How do I take that little thing out? I removed the black ashtray insert, but that flapper door seems like its connected both sides to the center console. How the hell do you remove it? I need to do so to either try cleaning with something strong or replace it with a new one.

rubbing alcohol will do the trick. glue gone is basically the same crap, except you pay more for a smaller bottle.

Oh crap, that glue was some super tricked out shit. That sticker I tried to put on there was actually cellphone stickers (TRD ones tho') and it put some super glue on there, I tried rubbing/scratching it off, but it actually dug right through my ashtray door, so now I'm screwed. I gotta figure out how to remove and replace it... anybody else know how?

yo did you think about sanding and spraying old piece instead of buying a new one?

Thanks guys, I think I'll do that, but I'm not sure where to get color-match paint to match the 04 console that's kinda a dark grey sparkly color?

Damn, my Toyota Dealership says its $101 for a new cig door!, WTF?! eek
