Front Cup holders

13 posts in this topic

I have just got back from the scrappy and got a first aid kit and some front cup holders including a spare left hand side one BUT I tried to fit them I took the blanking plate off and they wont fit as I have a piece of plastic going along the bottom which cant be removed and there is nothing to screw them into any ideas anyone??

If I cant fit them They will be for sale Pm me also spare left hand one and e34 first aid kit unopened.( Sorry if this counts as a for sale mods)

Mine had the blanking trim before I fitted the cup holders. I needed the two metal clips and two screws but it fitted straight in.

You definitely got E39 ones?

I can't think of anything that's in the way.

The cup holders push in and then need opening to secure the screws.

They're the same as what hold the fog lights in the front bumper and things like that.

Fancy not stealing the screws whilst you were at it :roll::lol:

These are the clips you need. Slot them over the plastic bit and get a couple of black screws as they show when the cup holders are open.
