New Mazda 6 centre cupholder doesn't lock
« on: December 20, 2014, 08:48:00 am »
Hi guys,

Lately I been having issues with centre cupholder on my 6 estate.  Sometimes it doesn't want to close. You push it down to open it then the lid automatically rises then fold it back push down until you hear the click to close it. The click isn't there sometimes. I mean today I made 30 attempts until it closed again. The i tried opening and closing it a few times and it all seems fine now.
Does anyone else have the same issue?

Thanks

Never had any issues.
The whole cup holder unit complete with the surround comes away very easily,  no tools required.
Get around the lip of the surround,  pull it away squarely and you will be able to see the mechanism that performs the locking function.

Not on the new 6... This is my issue. It was so simple on my 3 as well.

Difficult. It isn't that simple to remove and I am concerned they will damage the trim...

They damage it, they replace it.

Look at life through the windscreen, not the rearview mirror.
