Have you tried a forum search? The archive has a wealth of information.I am trying to remove the ashtray bracket as a step in checking the window switches. The ashtray has been removed and the two screws in the bracket have been removed, but the bracket will not pull out. I would appreciate all suggestions.

My switches in the new 560 SEC are J-B Welded to the bottom of my Veneer cover also. Don't ya just love Curbstoners? J-B Weld and Curbstoners shouldn't be mentioned in the same same paragraph, let alone the same sentence. Someday I'll find another very nice Veneer shift housing cover in dark burl WITH the intact clips on the bottom, but for now the cover is just too good to replace with anything less. I'll live with the small amount of J-B weld that is there until then..
