I used two tongue depressers, pushed the cupholder in a ways, put the depressers(popsicle sticks would work) up against the latching surfaces on the holder and the holder slipped right out. it took me 5 minutes to make the swap. The latches on the holder are not flexible so you have to move the interior part that is flexible. The sticks do this. I hope this is clear enough to understand. It is really simple. The sticks simply eliminate the latching ability.

HI If it is like my 92 toyota, Pull it all the way open and from underneath push up gently on each plastic clip where the cupholder meets the dash they are on the bottom furthest outside edges

the only way to fix this is the hard way.
you need to remove the pop out trim the holds the dash cup holder
carefully pry the edges around the trim to remove it

I have a 2003 Pontiac Montana. I am changing the radio out. Got 4 of the 6 screws out but not sure on how to remove cup holder in the dash to get to 2 other screws? Help!!!


Pull the cup holder out, then push it in about 2 inches, then push it DOWN at a 45 degree angle, pull on it and it will come out, then you can get the two screws above the cup holder out.
