1999 ML SUV cup holder question

Knowing that the coffee cup holder layout of these early models was flawed I have a few extra as back ups. My question is : in the 1999 430 SUV model do you have to take the dash out to install a new cup holder or is there a simplier way?

When I removed the glove box, the cup holder was pretty accessible on that side. Looked easy to remove.

Cup holder on drivers side seems more treicky to get to

so maybe the dash does have to be removed

For the passenger side you dont. I checked through my w163 pdf's and did not have cupholder stuff. Try a search or post this on the w163 forum. Someone will know.

On our 99 ML320 the cupholders were "coming off on their own"
I had the dealer reinstalling it couple of times, but than learned to do it myself. Once you figure it out it is like 45 seconds job.
