      I have a floating ashtray that I can't seem to get to stay anchored.

      I see the two knotches on the front of the ashtray, and I get them to go into the plastic console. Is there something in the rear that needs to click in too?

      I've looked at the console removal threads, but there i no good picture.

      it should just rest in there level. try putting a thin coat of chalk on the bottom of the ashtray to see if something is stopping it.

      Thank you very much for the pics.

      It looks like I need to take a few screws off and get at the ashtray from the bottom.

      Cheers man!
