F/L ashtray not closing - how to fix
« on: 21 May 2012, 20:11:59 »

If your ashtray stays open and you`ve checked for any foreign object trapped there`s either a breakage or the spring has come adrift.
To enable the ashtray to stay shut the spring activated (red-lined) hooked arm catches on the pin, bottom of this pic


Better pic here showing both items


If it`s only the spring that`s come adrift, move the hook 90deg to the right to release


This is the spring in situ


Re-fit spring as shown in pic with the left hand "tail" uppermost then position hook over retaining post and turn 90deg left to lock.


The L/H tail needs to be fitted into the groove on the hook as in pic


I found it easier to use a toothpick or similar through the hole at rear to position spring correctly.
That`s it job done.
Obviously if the spring has "gone missing" or the hooked arm is broke it`s a "wanted" ad in the spares section :)
