    My son bumped the 2nd row cup holders recently and now when I push it in, it doesn't eject out. I can't find how to remove the mechanism for repair. Anyone have any advice?

    Wait, you previously were able to push the 2nd row cupholders in, and then they slid out? Kind of like the center console cover in the front? Is that how the cupholders are supposed to work? Mine has always been extremely difficult to open. Pushing the cupholder does nothing. Pulling it to open it is difficult, as if the upper edge is slightly catching on the piece above it. It takes a minute or so fiddling with it to get it slide open - has always been that way. Was on my list to ask the SC about but I forgot about with other couple of dozen things.

    Yes, previously when it was first delivered, all you had to do was push it gently and it would eject out (springs). And if you wanted to close it, push it back it and it locks. Now after being bumped, the spring is jammed, you can feel the friction and it locks in place. To open now, i need to push it in again to release the lock then pull it out manually.
