    Hello all, I am getting OEM rear cup-holders for my 2016 Model S (before refreshj). However, it doesn't come with instructions. Could someone point me to where I can find instructions? Thanks a bunch!

    Step 1) Insert cup into cup holder
    :D Done!

    Kidding - welcome to TMC!
    I don't have the rear cup holders, but I'm sure someone here has them and knows what you are looking for.
    Good luck!

    To install them on any pre refresh car, you will need to change the center console carrier frame assembly and the ducts that go up to the rear air vents. Also, in addition to the rear cup holder assembly, you will also need the rear console closeout trim, the rear cupholder trim, and the rear air vent trim. If you are planning on installing the rear USB ports, you will also need the USB port cables, and the rear USB port module and wiring.
