Jamed? Something stuck on the sides? It doesn't move at all? Can you take it out?

My compartment above the ashtray does the same fucking thing ghead

I don't know how to fix it but I'm bringing it in to the stealership within a few weeks to get that and a few other things fixed before my warranty runs up. I'll keep you posted if I find out what's wrong.

Something is stuck. No duh!

Where? In the sides, or the bottom....try stick a thin object to lift it out...or lift it from the sides, I think the all come out....keep fiddling with it....you'll get it.

same goddamn thing happened just 2 days ago to mine i took the ashtray out to look for something jammed, but i think the closing mechanism is just stuck in so it doesnt "latch" for lack of a better word. pisses me off though
could be a sticky fliud (coffee or coke or something) that is making it stick

redronin .. i also took the ashtray out to look for an object that was not allowing it to close properly, but was unable to find anything. i think i am having the same problem as you but i have never had any drink beside water in my car, so im still unsure of what the problem is

Unbelievable! E36 had the very same problem. Now, E46 still has it. Is it really that hard to design a proper lid mechanism for the ashtray?? used
