Ash Tray holder:

If you have a Chrysler Crossfire there is a big chance that you have seen this, a hanging down cup holder. It's because of a broken plastic item in it.
The cup holder is easy to break, I have collected some information how to fix it. After that I have took it apart and succeed to repair part of it.
After have get it out from the car it looks like this. To the left is a weak hinge in plastic. I drilled a new hole and replaced it with a rod in brass. That's has nothing to do with the hanging down cup holder, it's another problem.
On the back there is a plastic arm protruding. I used that to replace the mechanism that hold it in correct position when closed.
Whith small pice of wood and a strong tape I made the new parts.
Here how it look when in place, I recommend you to glue it instead.
Now the lid is in correct position when closed, very common they hang down.
Cup holder in open position.
Back in place and much nicer look.
Here is the information I used when I repair it:
But this is not a good construction and I will later replace it with some aftermarket part. Maybe something like this:
