I would just pull it out and make sure it didnt shift on you. How did you attach the spring? Glue or the bolt method? I have seen the bolt method cause a issue if it sticks out to far.

I used the bolt method.Do you think the bolt heads are hitting something?

update it's fixed.The tab that you push down on to get it out was cracked and was to low for it to shut all the way.Took it off and shuts fine now.

Default Removing/Repair F-150 Dash Cupholder

The cup holder spring on my 2003 F-150 Supercrew fell off 4-years ago, finally decided to fix it today so the darn cup holder would go in & out like it was supposed to without having to bring a coat hanger with me.

I was afraid to just pry/yank the cup holder out, so I initially removed the vent panel trim which wasn't required. I know I'm not the only mentally challenged shade tree type on here so, pictures are worth a thousand words.

Unfortunately some of the pictures that were posted years ago are no longer available on the site, so I included those for those folk's that are reluctant to tackle this easy project.

Hope this benefits someone

My local Ford dealer quoted $289.87 to repair my in-dash cupholder on my 2003, and that was yesterday (28 January)! Your photos and insights gleaned from this forum allowed me to fix it, good as new, in less than 20 minutes with two machine screws. Great advice!

Did you look in the dash good? We fixed my friends 02 and it just fell down in the dash.

Default Simple

I used the info from this thread to fix my cup holder spring. Very simple once you know how to get the thing out of the dash.

Thanks for the info.
