The cup holder in the dash used to ratchet latch/lock to size of container. It locks closed and opens wide but, can't push slightly in to lock based on side of container. Can't figure out how to evern remove to inspect. Any help appreciated.<p>Thanks<p>Joe

Re: In dash cup holder - won't ratchet to container size & lock (Joe Mc)

Can't help with removal, but Volvo appears to have redesigned the cupholder. It broke in my 02 T5 and they replaced under warranty with one that doesn't ratchet, but instead has stiff rubber "fingers" to hold the cup/mug.

Thanks for replying. So I guess no one knows how to get this bugger out so I can examin/repair/replace? I had a CD manual but don't have the proper OS for it to work and now that I do the disk is (somehow) blank. Any help is appreciated.
