I push it in, but it won't open. The ashtray in the dash is a "push to open" type, but it won't open.
Do you
have the same problem?

Is there any give when you push it in? Or is it stuck solid.

I know what your talking about had the same problem. What has happened is the spring for the ash tray/cupholder has broken off the plastic tray. What need to do is use a small screwdriver and undo the clips at the top edge of the tray to remove the cup holder completely. Cross your fingers once you get the cup holder/ash tray out you might be lucky and find the spring laying on the lip of you dash as I did; now you can see where the spring goes w/ some small screws replace the spring and it should work fine. Good luck!11
