I had the problem I think lots of folks here have had with the vertical in-dash cupholder that has the free-spinning circle problem. I assumed it was trashed, so I took it out and actually repaired it last night. Once it is out, there are only two screws and some tabs holding it together. There was a small black plastic piece inside that the best way I can describe it is that it looks almost like a jack from the old timey childrens' game but it only had two 'arms'. This piece was free and loose in the bottom of the assembly and when I figured out how it was supposed to fit back over the pins of the main cupholder frame, I was able to press it back into place, test the unit, and put it back together in about 5 minutes. If your cupholder is free-spinning when open, maybe this will give you hope. -JerryC
PS I did the removal with the dash on but the stereo, SID, ACC, and stereo cage out. Dropped one screw into never never land.
