Aug 5, 2011 - Dash Cup Holder is stuck and won't come out, how do I fix it? - Saab 2004 9-3 ... How do I remove an in-dash cup holder in my 2005 Chevy Malibu. Apr 26, 2014 ' 2005 ... Nov 05, 2012 ' 1999 Pontiac Montana · 1 Answer ...
Hi. This is an easy do. With the cup holder fully extended, slide a flat puddy knibe into the top **** between the cupholder and the the dash. slide it side to side to disengage the stops that are part of the cupholder while pulling out lightly on the cupholder. It should come out without much effort. To reinstall, just push the replacement cupholder into the slot. Good luck!
In order to remove the rear passenger cup holder you must remove the console from the car and turn it over to gain access to the retainers that hold the cup holder into the console. If you go to the page at the web link below you will find detailed instructions with pictures (click on the pictures to enlarge them) on how to remove the console assembly from the floor.
The cup-holder jamming is a common problem for the RX.. this is usually caused by some distortion of the upper instrument panel. What is happening the the cup holder is being pinch and the spring force cannot over come the frictional forces. If you have it out, it could be as simple as adding some grease on the slide contact points.
You can try to pop off the register and cup holder assembly add reinstall it. It could change the positioning. The assembly is snapped in and held in place by locking tabs.
For the indash center cupholder, you need to remove that odd-shaped panel directly below it on the lower dash. There is 2 screws you can remove from there and then there are 2 more on the sides of the cup holder you can see from the front when the holder is in the open position... be patient and wiggle it around a little it will come out of there!
stick your hands in the cup holder, press against the sidewalls of the cup holder and pull up, there are only 2 metal clips that hold the cup holder assembly in place, it will pop right out, once out check for things obstructing the cup holder lid or broken tracks, a new one is 90-115 bucks or about 20 at a junkyard, just went through this myself
I recently had to retrieve a small object (camera battery) that was dropped in the cup holder. The battery allowed the cup holder to close properly, but it would not allow the cup holder to open all the way, making the cupholder useless.
Getting access to remove the object was quick and easy - all it takes is a small flat blade screw driver. Use the screw driver to gently pry up the wood trim panel in front of the cup holder. Be sure to pull it up evenly from both sides and it will pop out of its retaining sockets. You'll then have the access you need.
When you've finished, just realign the wood trim piece and tap it back into place. You can see a picture of where to pry at http://info5000.com/LS400_trim.jpg
