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.

The ashtray door on my 2005 lincoln navigator won't stay closed. Found a small black piece of plastic in the cup holder, might be from the latch or something inside the door housing. Can I fix or does it...


You should have the identical part on the other side of your vehicle. Take a look at it and see if it the same. To empty the ashtrays, many are removable to dump and empty.

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.

2003 passat wagon rear window washer leaks


Hi
I have had this problem as well as many others with the passat Solved it as follows
First take out 2 philips screws inside the pull down hand grips ( hidden by covers) and 2 by the rear window surround
Then pull the rear panel of it is secure by metal clips, a 3 foot length of 2x1 timber with an angled ends helps to release the ones nearest the window
The washer pipe just pushes on the back of the wiper assembly
The most common reason it comes off is because of not using sufficient anti freeze additive in the washer water, inside the washer motor drive spindle is a small brass pipe which freezes in cold weathe and when you use washer the pressure pushes the pipe off
It an other one of volkswagens stupid designs a long with putting all the vunerable electronics in a box in the footwell which then floods when the drain under the battery gets blocked with debris!!!!
