Since my passanger seat always stays pushed back as far as possible, the adjustment handle in front of the seat works perfectly as a cup holder.

All you have to do is get an individual cup holder from a store, set it in between the seat and the handle and rubberband it to the handle.

It has a slight forward slant to it, so it will only work with covered drinks or bottled drinks with caps.

It could be a little in the way for a passanger if a drink is in it, but managable.

Give it a try! Works for me. No more dripping on the radio!

Working 16 hour double shift today and double shift tomorrow on my B-day.

I will try to get some pics of it on Fri or Sat.

You can even use a large oversized cup there as your drink holder.

Just rubber band it in place. Easy removal if your passanger wants to adjust the seat forward.

Doesn't work for me; seats have electric adjustment! Have you change the old useless cupholder over for the coin/sunglass tray like we have in Europe?

By the way, many happy returns!:Beer: (wish I was 44 again!)

Much as I dislike cup holders (what's the point?), they do have some use:





(Unfortunately, VB stubbies aren't available in the UK these days, it seems)


I really don't understand this modern habit of having to slurp coffee / water / some poseur atheletic drink in one's car ever few minutes.
