2018 Mazda6 cupholder removal
McDonalds graciously sold me a cup of iced coffee this morning with a crack in the side of the cup. Unfortunately, I didn't notice the cup drained 1/2 of the coffee into the cupholder area until I got to work. Most of it seemed to be contained but I think some leaked down through the sprung cup support holes around the sides of the cup holder.
I can not believe my luck with this car.
My wonderful smelling car now smells like coffee :/
Anyone know how to get this part out? I thought it would be similar to the 3's but that doesn't seem to be the case because the padded leather arm rest part goes all the way from back to front on the console (the 3's have a break in the armrest before the shifter area). There seems to be a space all the way around the perimeter of the cupholder part which makes me think it should come out of the console seperately.
Upon looking, it looks like it should lift out but it is in there good...I took the screw out in the bottom of one of the cupholders...I've noticed one of the parts is separate and I am assuming there could be a screw or two under there (see edited pic)..but not sure.
Anyone have any information?
I don't want to break anything, especially knowing my luck, so I thought I would see what the knowledge base is out there.
