Cup Holder broken

Post by Firstgencunarder » Fri Jul 03, 2020 10:43 am

Dear community, I just saw that one rubber pad is obviously broken.
Do you have the same issue? Is it common? How can I replace it? The car is still under warranty.
Thank you very much

If the car is still under warranty then take it back to a main dealer and let them have the problem, personally I would imagine it could be a real PITA to sort out.

It is, according to the workshop manual it requires removing most of the centre console trim to get to the cup holder.

The same thing happened to me about a year ago. Mine fixed itself with a hot drink in the cup holder. It must have heated the rubber and popped back into shape

Popping back is nit the problem. There is an air gap between the rubber and the pad. I never put a cup in anyway. Just saw it during cleaning. I am not sure what to do. Leave it as is or going to the dealer.... If you have to dismount most parts of the center console I can imaging what it will be looking later on... I saw some picture of an F Pace with disassembled upper console. It is only clamped. from there I could use some glue to get it back into its position...
