Suddenly noticed that three of my cup holder lugs are not functioning. They have popped back into their "sockets". Anyone have similar problem?

Funny enough when I was tyre-kicking in the VW showroom I pressed one of the clips in and it stuck :oops: As the vehicle was brand new I thought it might be released by pressing all in simultaneously i.e putting a cup in and then taking it out. Worth a try.

Sadly this did not work for me, one of the luggs has disappeared altogether, I guess its somewhere under the central console

Guess what the same has happened to one of mine and now disappeared inside.

I have noticed that when they stick the 'technique' is to apply slight pressure and drag your finger upwards as if a cup is being gripped and then pulled out of the holder. Works for the ones that stick but the one inside the console is going to be another problem.

IMHO the visibility of the cup holders detracts from the stylingh of the centre console. You can buy a veneered cover (US Forum site) but they are a tad expensive.
