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.

Where is the cigarette lighter supposed to be on a 2003 Buick Lesabre


Not sure you mean the lighter or the fuse for the lighter.
The lighter should be close to the ashtray.

The fuse should be behind the ashtray under the dash. It may be a fuse or a fusible link.

Hope this helps.

Ashtray door is stuck closed


Try to use a good quality "Foam Cleaner" - don't use too much - ; it might be due to dust or dirt. Leave if for a few minutes, and then tap gently on the ashtray cover. Repeat the process if needed, then wipe clean. This may solve the problem, as I had a similar case two days back but with the ashtray of one of the rear doors on my 1999 XJ8.. and this solved it.. also I used same trick to make the top of the ashtray compartment in the center console opens more freely.

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.

Coins are lodged behind the ashtray of my 2001 Acura TL and the ashtray will not close completely. How do you remove the ashtray to get the coins removed?


There should be a tiny tab at the back of the ashtray that you'll need to pry away from the dash and the ashtray should pop out

Crossfire, ashtray


Remove the cover on the center console. This is the large bezel that covers the center section of the dash. Radio must be removed first to expose 2 screws that secure it in place. It hooks at the top. Be carefull with the connectors for the console switch group.

Remove the 4 screws attaching the ashtray to the center console.

Press the ashtray housing over to the left and then remove it toward the right.

Disconnect the ashtray harness connector for the courtesy light.
