    Cup Holders!

    Hi I know this should probably be in classified section but not everyone looks there. I'm after the cup holders that sit in the centre console on a 98 a4 avant as mine are knackerded from previous owner, god knows how, and willing to pay plus postage, cheers. You can reply to this or get me on 0781353044Seven, Colin.

    If you are talking about the double spring up cup holders by the handbrake, get them from stealers, I got mine from them and paid 22 quid, not bad considering the buggered ones annoyed the hell outta me by staying up all the time and cosmetically looks a damn site better when you can have em flat.

    Yeah had it all apart on kitchen table and seen that the small cogs on the side had most of the teeth missing. God knows how people can let thier car get in such a state, then again I only paid 650 for my 1.8se avant so can't complain.

    Simon, the centre console section needs to be released/removed to fit the new cup holders as they are screwd and clipped in from the underside

    there are 2 caps beside the seats, the seats need to go all the way back to see them. Then remove the ashtray and there is a 13mm nut in there. You then need to remove the handbrake trim, if you look at where your hand goes to operate it, just below that is a plastic pin, that needs to come out to release the trim. I think thats it
