Thumbs up Center Console Lid Leather

09 RDX, the leather on the center console lid starting lifting , while I was in for a B1 I pointed it out to service writer, the Acura dealer agreed to replace it under warranty. They have seen this before. They were very good about it. Take a look at yours

what do you mean by "lifting"? like bubbling? or the panel that's actually wrapped in leather is separating from the console lid?

Same thing happened to my '08. I took it to the dealer and they agreed to replace it however it was back ordered. They just received it and I am going today to get it put on. I hope the replacement does not do the same thing.

5 -6 large bubbles. Acura is replacing the hinged lid, really the only way to fix it.

Lexol, lexol, lexol. Keep the car cleaned & conditioned and this problem will belong to the next owner.

At some point the warranty goes away...and so does the courtesy replacement...here is what an RL owner did...
