Repair Cup Holder

If you have a bench seat and the cup holder at the bottom has broken because the tabs that connect to the assembly were broken, I have a fix that has worked well.

Tools needed:

1. Dremel tool or Multi max (worked perfectly)
2. #12-24 x 1/2 machine screws
3. Superglue to bond metal and plastic
4. metal drill bit for #12 hole.
5. Simpons Strong Tie A21z L bracket

Re: Repair Cup Holder

Step One: Remove existing plastic bracing behind cup holder so the surface is smooth. You will glue the new bracket to there.

Step Two: Very important! Mark the location of where the old tabs were so that you can drill new holes in the metal bracket. The screws will now go outward as opposed to the old tabs which went inward.

Step Three: Drill holes

Step Four: Shave off metal L bracket so that it lines up with OEM bracket.

Step Five: Insert new screws so that they are aimed outwards and into the existing cup holder eyelets. The tension will keep them together. I do not recommend gluing both of them as it makes removal impossible. (in case of course you decide to break the OEM eyelets!

Nice... I see this fix coming up in my very near future. Good job!

Custom "shortened" wire loom (thanks to the guy that cut all the lines...)

The guy bought a custom sound system, but manual locks & windows. WTF?

Re: Repair Cup Holder

Thanks for the post. I was able to modify your technique and come up with this concept for a repair. Menard's has a cushion clamp, 1/4 x 1/2. After making some mods of the bracket, works perfect for my needs. Total cost was $0.59. The clamp had to be flatten for the cup holder assembly to fit back into the console.

Re: Repair Cup Holder

Caution where the screw goes into the holder. Need to keep in mind of avoiding the hinge.
