Cool 2009 Saturn Sky Cup Holder

My cup holder has gone inside the console. It opens and closes but is out of place. I tried to pull it out but I am afraid of breaking it. {If it is not already broken} How do I get it out? Will it just pull back out or do I have to take things apart. All in all I love the car. Please help... Thank You in Advance....Steve

Sounds like something has broken behind the assembly and requires replacement. Might be under warranty as long as you have less than 36K on the odometer.

Also, check out the Sky Roadster forums. I like SaturnFans, but there is not much Sky-related traffinc around here.

i've seen a few go bad, never done one myself. Service Information doesn't give much:

Procedure
Use a flat-bladed plastic trim tool in order to release the retainer tabs securing the cupholder to the console cover.

Same thing happened to mine. the one by the passenger left knee. One day it just went in too far. It barely pulls out far enough to be useful now. Not that it ever was to begin with. I hardly ever used it, as it was so unsturdy and constantly spilled my drinks. Plus it took valuable space away from the passengers leg room. Thought about getting it fixed under warranty. My bumper to bumper ends on Sunday.... But I figure I didn't use it, even when it worked right, since the dual cupholder behind my shoulder works infinitely better. Plus, at least now I dont have to worry about someone accidentally hitting it with their knee and spending 10 minutes trying to get it to go back in.

They CAN be replaced with aftermarket steel parts though. I think the solstice forums had a thread about it a year or two ago.

I broke mine. I hate it. worst cup holder ever. Once the warranty was replaced, I left it alone. POS.

If you have a manual trans, you can pull up the shifter boot. With access to the back of the cup holder just push the holder completely though and out of the hole around the shifter. If the holder isn't broke reinstall it from the outside. ( don't push to hard) I think with the auto trans can be pushed in turned 90 degs push out the side (sideways) then reinstalled

I have this same issue in my Solstice - Annoying but it still works and lines up OK if you close it right (in my case..)
