Dicktator's One Drive has the explanation for the in dash cup holder. They are mounted the same way so you should find your answer there.

That instruction only shows how to reglue front back on but does not describe how to remove unit from the dash. My front of coin tray broke off because it wouldn't slide any more and I want to replace unit with new slide tray.

There are some suggestions in this thread you might consider.

and I stole this from another thread:
First.... Welcome to the SSR family. It's a great bunch of passionate owners.

Your coin tray is probably stuck because of an internal jam in the tray...... Usually something that was in the tray that migrated. What you must resist is the urge to pry too hard on the face of the drawer.

The mechanism of the drawer is very similar to the cupholder on the passenger side of the dash....... It is a fully enclosed little box that holds everything. You probably already understand that it has a "push to latch" and "push to unlatch" type of toggling mechanism. What you need to try is to get it into the "unlatched" mode and then put some "simulated vehicle vibration" into the dashboard under the coin tray. I usually use the heel of my hand or the soft bottom of my fist........ You can also remove the ashtray (three 7mm screw heads at the hinge and a nylon leash) to gain access to the side of the tray to tap on the tray itself.

Yes, you can also pry on the faceplate a little to help, but you have to be really careful that you don't break off the little tabs that hold it onto the drawer.

I'm sorry that I can't offer anything better. The coin tray is actually an Audi designed part that frustrates many of us.

Good luck,

Mike

Would you please post a picture of the tool you made. I can open mine by using a hook but not remove it. Thanks

Talked to Dicktator today and he gave me direction on how to remove it. I will use his technique and let you know how successful I was and try to include pictures. Thanks to everyone for the help.

Alone the same lines, a dumb question: How to instal the coin holder cover (replacement)? I know it "just snaps in place" but like so many plastic parts on the SSR which are prone to breakage, how to avoid shearing off one or more of the retaining clips on the back? Do I engage the lower clips and rotate the cover to engage the top clips or in reverse? Or just align all 4 and force it in place? What have others found? Thanks. Rick

I have a functional coin tray without the face plate. Dicktator has directions in the library on replacing the face plate. Silicone glue & tooth picks placed for alignment while drying. PM me if you want to purchase the coin tray & any questions.

Edit: Follow the wise suggestions of Yellow Bear below and disregard what I said if you got a chance to read it.

"Snap softly, Grasshopper", SSR plastic parts do Not respond to "force" very well. If you use the coin tray and cup holder in the dash regularly and have drinks down on the console cup holders... sooner or later you will lift the drink "up" and knock the faceplate off. IF you Glue it back On.... the next time may break the slider rendering it trash. The New one doesn't come with the trim plate, so now, you have to try and salvage the plate. Would strongly suggest use some double sticky like 3M to hold the face plate on. Use smaller pieces so that it can be changed often.... it'll save a lot of arguements with the co-pilot....

This is what I did. It’s nearly impossible to do this with it in the Dash.

Replacing the Ash Tray / Coin Holder Cover

Remove the Ash Tray or Coin Holder.

Position the new Cover on the front.

Turn it upside down so that you are looking at the little slots in the cover.

Slide the smooth slide of the clip thru the slot with the curved side sliding behind the bottom of the tray.

Open and Close it to make sure it works properly.

Slide the Ash Tray / Coin Holder back into
the Dash.

Something that you might think about....
If your thinking about changing out the coin holder...
Why replace the coin holder with another one...
Put in a cup holder.....
It comes in great on long trips....

After buying special tool (part # J 45999) to remove cup holder and coin tray on my SSR, I found that previous owner had so much glue on them that they glued shut onto dash. I searched and found a used coin tray on ebay, new cup holder and both face plates from Wild Bill's SSR parts. I now have functional trays on dash (at a expensive cost), but they are just for looks. The cup holders are not strong to hold a large soda without it bouncing around splashing soda all over the place. The coin tray is not big enough to hold many coins. I love my SSR and I have it back to original condition (and they work) as long as you don't use them. I ended up using the cheap cup holders you slide down in windows to hold my coffee while I'm driving and I never have cash anymore, since the check card.

I use the cup holder for canned soda and the passenger side console cup holder for my thermos coffee cup (from SSRoe). The change holder is where I keep my SSR Fanatic business cards for those I meet, or just find parked.

Coin holder switch

I removed a defective coin holder ( would not close or open ) with an in dash cup holder and it works ok but limited to a soda can and best if not a full can, that decreases the potential splash.

How about posting the dimensions of that Kent Moore tool ?
