#1 of 16 Toyota Highlander floor console
Dec 05, 2006 (12:22 pm)
I'm trying to find a floor/center storage console that will fit my 2001 highlander which did not come with one. Any suggestions on finding a good looking not over the moon expensive solution?

This is the one you need. It doesn't look like it's changed at all and it definitely has many advantages over the little they started putting in. It has an inteernal light which is good and you can plug other devices into it. It's under $100. The cup holders also work well. It has to be installed from the rear also just as an FYI.
#3 of 16 cup holder insert missing?
Jan 27, 2007 (5:15 pm)
I just bought a 2002 HL which has the center console. It has (front to back)a small ashtray, then a rectangular compartment, then a larger compartment with clamshell cover. I figure the middle compartment is where the cup holders would be, but I think the insert is missing that holds the cups. Is this insert removable and does anyone have the part number. I call parts departments and they say they don't know what I'm talking about?

I am missing the same part in my 2002 HL. Did you ever find out the part number? Or find out where to order one? I would so appreciate your help.

No. You are the first person to respond. I just cut a 3" diameter paper tube to the correct height temporarily and the console holds two of them. Still don't know part #.

I know that the dealer has the part # because I had a 2001 Highlander and was really bothered by the tiny 2001 cup holder non-console. When the 2002s came out and I saw the console, I went to the dealer and had them install it in my 2001; they brought it up on their computer and had to order it part by part, down to the screws and nuts. The parts and installation were really expensive, but it was worth it to me.
Rather than calling the dealer, I would just drive over and show them what you want (if they are local). Like I said, I know they have the part # in the database, but they might have to see exactly what part you are missing.
#8 of 16 Access to center floor console

I dropped a credit card between the clam shell door on the console box and the console frame itself. Anyone know as easy way to gain access to the inside the console unit? I can't get the box out and tried to get into the back of the unit but to no avail. It is a 2002 Highlander

You might find some dash diagrams in one of the repair links in the Online Repair Manuals guide.
I have access to the ARRC Auto Repair reference center info online through my public library and it has exploded dash diagrams (searching for heater core info is a good shortcut for finding dash diagrams, and the few I've seen include center consoles). Of course, the '02 database for the Highlander flipped me to RAV4 diagrams.... figures.
Maybe someone has a factory manual with a diagram they can scan and post in their CarSpace album?
