    Dash Cupholder Stuck In - How do i release it

    My cup holder is stuck in and won't come out, i think its a combination of too many Mc'donalds cokes being left in the holder overnight, it's basically stuck in, i always had to give it a good wack in the past but now it wont come out at all.

    Does anyone know how to remove this part so that i can clean it.

    I'm interested too as mine takes a couple of presses to spring into life

    replace them as they are quite cheap, all you will need is a big screw driver dependant on vehicle!

    thats how mine used to be, but it gradually got worse.

    The problem i have is that i reckon you need to have the cup holder open to get to the clips that release it. I've tried quite a few thing to get mine open but no joy yet.

    I was going to post the same question today as mine has been stuck in since I bought it.

    Obviously not very well thought out hey!

    Do you think Audi would fix it under warranty?

    I had this problem when I bought the car, I solved it by (very carefully) pulling it out with a thin piece of metal. It still happened afterwards, so almost gve up. Then when I next drove it I accelerated off a roundabout and it opened! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    After that it worked, but it tended to take a while to come out, so every time i drove the car I pressed it. It now works fine! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    I had problems with mine the I first had it. It would be pot luck if it would come out or not.
    So I included it on a list of 5 things to be done under warranty, now have a new holder which works fine! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
