GT ashtray cover won't stay down!
The cover over my ashtray (in the front in front of the gear lever) is driving me absolutely up the wall.
It doesn't seem to want to stay down - it's much more highly sprung than the one in my old GT was but doesn't always click down. It takes a good hard slamming to get it to stay down (even that doesn't always work) and then it'll ping itself open again randomly as I'm driving along. It scared the hell out of me last time it happened!
I took it to Perrys to ask them about it and was told it would need the entire ashtray replacing at a cost of ~£60 (before labour costs). I've no intention of bad-mouthing them because I've always been very pleased with their service but surely this is just a loose screw somewhere in the mechanism or a broken clip?
Has anybody had this happen? How did you fix it?
Alternatively, if I can source a replacement ashtray from a breakers, how difficult is it to replace? I can only see a couple of screws..
