Anyone ever changed the cup holder on these model trucks?
Mine is broken as well but the price for it is ridiculous from the dealer. I think it was over $200. Please let us now if you find the cup holder for any cheaper. Thanks.sergiu
could you send me info about the backseat dual cupholder as mine is broken and i need to get a new one and install it.
thanks in advance
I spent a lot of time fixing the passenger cup holder on my 430ML. Here's what I learned. Mine would not open. I forced it open with a screw driver, and it was filled with rocks (!?). There was no spring. The dealer wanted $33 for the spring, which is basically a small piece of metal like a paper clip. Luckily, local pick-n-pull yards are FILLED with MLs. You can search the pick-n-pull website for local inventory. By the way, these wrecks are a great way to experiment with removing trim pieces...if you break stuff, no one cares.Here are three pictures sent to me by a fellow blogger to complement the explanation above.
If somebody needs to remove the backseat dual cupholder, let me know, I got that one too.
