My son's Audi A4 Platform B6 2004 Cabriolet Convertible Quattro 3.0, his first car, and my first Audi ownership.
The cup holder broke, snapped off as shown. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to remove the old one to replace it. I google'd everywhere, one DIY was close but the TRIM removal just above the cup was much different looking than this one. I don't want to brute force anything yet.
Any Hints from you guys would be super appreciated! How do we replace this cup holder? How to remove that trim? Thanks.
My sister's 04 cabriolet doesn't open either? Do we have to buy the E 5PR one or we can modify the D? It would be nice if it can open.
I'd pull the D out, make the Mod by pulling out the 2 pins with a needle nose plyer, and see if you like how it's works. I think there's a spring or two missing so more manual open/close needed. Or just buy the E 5PR.
To access the box? Does it flip down when you drive or it will stay in place with a latch or something?
The front of box opens out (maybe about 1/2 inch) & then up (maybe about 1 inch). Since there's no spring it does not remain open unless you hold on to it.
I am not sure about when closed, especially if it will stay in closed position without rattling. I haven't yet reinstalled it as I'm waiting on the Cup Holder new part to arrive, which is why I removed the box in the 1st place. If it does rattle too much I'll just seal it shut somehow, perhaps by putting back the 2 pins, or maybe I'll just buy 2.8H0 857 058 E 5PR is the one that pops open.
