04 Avensis - Popout Cupholder Fix

Recommended Posts

OK

I have a 2004 Avensis T3-X. Last week, whilst driving the pop-out cup holder in the dash decided it would come out all by itself. No mater what I do it wont stay in. Sticking out like an insulant tongue at me driving!

So, the thing is broken, no probs i thought, simple job. Took it in to my local Toyota dealer.

The reaction I got was like I had asked for the thing to be hewn from solid titanium! They quoted £220 to fix! FOR A CUP HOLDER???? WTF??? That and the "oh, we have to replace the whole facia strip, remove the radio etc... (what? drop the engine, and get at it from the engine bay too?????????)

Anyway, does anyone know if i can just order the cupholder from Mr T and fit it myself (I have had the facia strip off already, so know thats not actually that difficult)

Why don't people just go on ebay to start with, so much easier than actually taking a trip to their local dealers

A misguided, evergreen hope that Westover Group, and specifically Mr T's franchise there of, are not out to fleece me for every penny they can get their grubby little mits on... I have high expectations, which are more often that not missed - every time, you'd think I'd learn eh.

I do have a friendly little local independent garage who do all my actual servicing stuff, so may ask them too!
