Default DIN Slot Cupholder & Coin Tray

Thanks to Hatchie from for letting me post up his DIY:

Okay, first off, go to your local junkyard and either go to a 92-95 Mercury Sable or go to a 92-95 Ford Taurus.

You're going to be looking for these:

Now, after you pick which one you want to take out, there are two clips on both sides. Squeeze these one by one and pull while squeezing (there's a tool for this).

After you got it most of the way out you will find that it gets stuck. This being there is a slider clip underneath...

Press the buttons to open both trays and pull the trays fully out. Tilt the whole piece down and it will come right out.

Now to the How-to:
Look through the hole in the back when both the cup and coin are out as far as they can go. This is what you will see:

See the clip that holds it in?

Next, remove top one by wedging something between the coin holder and the plastic that surrounds it.

Do the same for the bottom when the top one is removed.

Now clean it.... let it dry.

Put it back together.... don't worry they just slide in.

Next, it's time to put it in the car!

When I put this in my wiring harness for the radio and other things were in the way.... and kept the whole thing from going in. So, I cut the piece like this to make it to where the whole thing just slides in.

First, cut the tabs off the bottom.

Then cut the side tabs off. (OPTIONAL if you have the removal tool KEEP THESE TABS, they help lock it in place later)

Then, cut the pieces that come out the back...
Cut a 1/2 inch off of each end.
Then, cut cup and coin on left hand side another inch back, leave the track.

It will look like this when you're all done.

Last step option 1: If you cut off the side clips
The way I cut it makes it to where the wiring harness doesn't have to be moved you might have to pop the zip tie clip out though if it still hitting and the cup and coin will rest inside the dash peacefully

Last step option 2: If you kept the side clips
Push it in, you're done!

Sweet action! Beats the hell out of buying an almost identical JDM one.
