2005 Lincoln LS V6 Ash Tray stays open, wont close


Pop out the ashtray. Remove the ashtray assembly (the housing). if you flip the ashtray over and look at the bottom you can see a small spot where a piece of plastic has broken off (this should be obvious). In the ashtray housing there is the latch mechanism with the broken "nipple" probably stuck inside of the mechanism. Get the plastic piece out and discard it. Reinstall the housing only.

Now, get a TINY ( I mean really small, like 4mm long and maybe 1/4-1/2mm diameter) screw handy. Drill a slightly smaller hole right through the ashtray where the piece of plastic was before it broke off. screw in the screw from the TOP of the ashtray so it only pokes out of the bottom 1.5 MMor so. Put the ashtray in. If it still doesn't "catch" screw the screw in a little further so it sticks out the bottom a little more. If it binds you've ******* the screw in too far so back it off. You get the drift.

This takes about 30 minutes. It's hard to explain but once you look at the bottom of the ashtray you'll understand the concept. Hope this helps somebody out there.

How to repair a ashtray in a 2004 Ford F-150 Crew Cab Lariat


This is more than likely because of a small pin that has fell out of the tracking device that allows the ashtray to spring open and then stay closed when you push it again.

Take a small ridge plastic tool to wedge the wood like trim off from around the stereo, and air conditioner controls. There are 6 clips, 3 on each side. Don't disconnect anything. It not necessary. Two small screws hold the ashtray in place remove these and remove the ashtray from the dash. Look down inside the inner console to see if you can find the small pin that is missing. Good luck with that. I couldn't find mine. Examine the open/close mechanism and see if you can find some that will work lying around the house. I had to make mine. I used a small stainless steel Allen bolt. Cut it to length, filed it down so the point would track through the open/close maze, gave it test run, hot glued into place, and reinstalled. Works like a champ.

Oh oh and just in case you are wondering, Ford doesn't make parts for parts.

I own a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. I never use the ashtray except for spare change. Tonight, on my way home, I noticed that after I pushed it back in it would not stay closed... Suggestions on how to fix?


Hi, Most ashtrays have a spring type clip that holds the tray in place.
In your case you have to bend the clip so it sits properly in the stop.
Do not over bend. Good luck.

Ashtray in my 2005 Kia Amanti Stays open


It sounds like the spring mechanism on the tray is either bent or broken. You can try removing the tray and bending the spring steel to increase the friction or you may have to purchase new or used ash trays.
