I've heard that this is a bit of a known problem, but I had no luck with a search! Last week I was retrieving some change from the front ashtray, but when I went to close it again (which I always do gingerly because I heard they were troublesome!) it refused to catch, and would be permanently open now if I hadn't jammed it shut with some rubber bungs from my old Concert head unit :D
Does anyone know what the problem might be? I've had a poke around, but there's no visual evidence of anything broken.
