Cupholder Repair? Help!

2265 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  atmsmshr
Well my drunken friend broke my flip out cupholder in the armrest on new years, and so far I'm completely stumped on how to put it back together. As far as I can tell nothing is broken, and all the parts are there. I just can not for the life of me figure out how to reassemble it. I fear taking it to the dealer will cost me big time ($$$)

There are several small pins that hold the cupholder into the metal arms for my '02 S430.

Additionally, there is Swiss watch size gearing that you must reinstall correctly to get the 'snap open' feeling.

Finally, there is a small spring at the rear metal arm contact which I have not yet been able to reinstall. This spring is was holds the cupholder tightly closed.
