I found a 2001 9-5 at Pick-n-Pull that had a front ashtray that looks like it's never been used. The ashtray itself was on the floor, and the rest of it was still snapped into the dashboard. It works, but when you press it in to open it, it snaps out with some force. It doesn't have a soft, slow opening, like the ashtray on my 1997 900. I was wondering if it's supposed to just snap open, or if there's a damper of some sort that broke off or went missing.

I can see the hole in the bottom where it used to be. Gear teeth on the bottom of the sliding mechanism are visible through there. Now I just need to track down a compatible rotary damper.
