You can use below content for you customer_account.xml to add new link there in My Account sidebar section

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="2columns-left" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd" label="Customer My Account (All Pages)" design_abstraction="custom">
        <referenceBlock name="customer_account_navigation">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current" name="custom-link-left-sidebar">
                    <argument name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Custom Link Left Sidebar</argument>
                    <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">custom/index/index</argument>

In above content you can use your Block class name instead of using Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current this

You can remove any link using below line in your xml file

<referenceBlock name="your-block-name" remove="true" />

You can add your block name where I have mentioned 'your-block-name'. For e.g. If you want to remove wishlist link then you can find block name of wishlist link here in this file..


there is one block with this name "customer-account-navigation-wish-list-link" that is your wishlist link block you can use this name in referenceBlock name and just add remove="true" after it.

After adding this you can clear and flush cache using commands

php bin/magento cache:clean
php bin/magento cache:flush

Hope this may help you!

Add xml file in your theme layout customer_account.xml and add that code in xml file

<referenceBlock name="customer_account_navigation">
    <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current" name="customer-account-navigation-custom-link" after="-" >
             <argument name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Custom Label</argument>
             <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">my-path-url</argument>
