    Ashtray does not close

    Hello, i recently picked up a e34 525i from 1991. Car is very clean, original from spain, so no rust at all . However this ashtray has been bugging me. It won’t close fully, and i struggle to find any DIY, do i have to remove the climate or center console?

    Maybe the same as on my E32 ashtray I fixed? See here fixing an ashtray that sticks when opening http://twrite.org/shogunnew/fixes/body.html
    Get a Bentley repair manual for the E34, helps a lot.
