Fantastic thread and I love the videos as well. I'll be keeping a close eye on this. Thanks!
Thanks for the advice, i am dreading it because I know it's a PITA hahaWith all the built up leaves and crap in the hood area you might want to replace the cabin filter if you haven't already.
It's not that bad, electric screw driver and knee pads is all you need, I can do one in an hour and two beers.Thanks for the advice, i am dreading it because I know it's a PITA haha
I just really really wish they had steel components and steel ball joints etc. Could be an amazing design but it's just too flimsy!Finally replaced my cup holder today. I never use it but it always bothered that it was broken!

I didn't know you had to open up the entire dash panel. It was fun but tedious. Broke tabs and cracked the dash a little. oops

I found the culprit! 1 ball was broken. I guess this is why most cup holders fail.

The other culprit. This gear was too free and it was causing the cup holder to come out too fast.

It's a very small thing but I feel good knowing that onemore thing is restored to its former glory. AND I got to learn how it all works inside. I had a very good time with this one. Video link below!
I have a 3d printer and I was thinking of replicating that ball part but it would probably break again. I was thinking the same thing! I wish someone made steel versions!I just really really wish they had steel components and steel ball joints etc. Could be an amazing design but it's just too flimsy!
exactly, I never use it either but it just feels so good knowing it works hahaIt's just a fun piece.
I rarely use it, only with something with a screw top or a stable straw set up, I would never put a cup of coffee in it.
I made sure to tape all around the mating point. If it fails it would fail due to the lack of quality. I think it is safe from waterYou do not have bottom seal in original, that's why it leaks.
Do not be surprised if new stops working in near future.
