Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007 Discussion, Help removing the Ashtray door in Cadillac CTS Coupe, Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon Forums; Like many, I use the ash tray (Actually it is now a velvet like covered removable compartment) for holding my ...
Yes, pull out the the velour piece and unscrew the one bolt. Definitley take care as their are endless places for small objects to dissappear, including the bolt. I had a paper clip get back there and I could here it every time I made a hard turn . If the coin is not clearly visible try a pointed vacumn nozzle attachment and maybe the suction will get it. Good Luck.
Don't pull the door out, take that whole small panel off.
Lots of info on how to remove that panel.
If you take the door out, it will be nearly impossible to reassemble it without breaking something.
There is a hidden screw behind the ash tray cup, then it "just pulls" off.... (yeah right!)
I'd sure appreciate knowing how to disassemble the center unit and pull it out property. I have a handful of coins that fell through (someone stole the felt cup and I didn't realize it until I had thrown change in the ashtray bay.) Driving me nuts, but I am visual and would love to see a pictorial instruction on that. Anyone have such?
