1999 E430 Cup holder

Hello benzworld, I am new here and actually found this site looking for a answer to my current problem. I accidentally broke the cup holder in my E430. After reading the post in this forum, I found that it was actually easy to replace. However, all of them mention that you should collapse the cup holder before removing. But my cup holder broke when it was out and now it can go back down (collapse). Can you please advise me on how I should remove it. Thank you

The whole supholder unit comes out of the cubbyhole.

It generally "clips" into the rear side of the cubbyhole with a tab on that side.

After being in there for many years that clip gets kindof stuck, you can spray a bit of water or silicone on it to aid removal, once you get it out (or if you were looking at a replacement cupholder) how it's held in there is straightforward.

Keep the faith !
When it is loose, if I remember correctly you tilt the front/dash side of the holder down, and it lifts up from the back, then you clear it up and out.

Good luck !
