Those that posted this in other groups/forums, feel free to link to this video as well or if you want you could also send me a link and I will post it there.
Didn't know there was a video on it. Just installed mine and all I had to do was put the pins in and give it a little twist to get it into the tracks. It fits great but i can see why you put a little lube on there. Thanks for these.

Interested in a couple cup holders. If possible send me the address and cost and I will put money in mail asap.
Mine is a 2006 base model. Hopefully with the increased technology some will make tuli panels.
Thanks
Gary

Sure could use one in black if you'll sell me one.

Simple device, .... no batteries, no tools to install, might ship for a little more than regular postage, if instructions are needed, ask them to send it back.
This item is on Thingverse so anyone can print it
Hello Rob. Are you still able to print these? What about the part that the replacement arm goes into? Any luck printing those? Thanks

Here is a little trick I used with my Santana cup holder. It seems that in the solstice, the Santana doesn't hold a large cup very well due to the straight vertical surface it is mounted in. I built a standoff of 1/4" black ABS that makes the large cups fit much better. Pics are pretty much self explanatory.

a cup holder that works!

replaced my cup holder with the Santana holder after constantly tinkering with the OEM holder to keep it working. The Santana is a big improvement but needed some tweaking in order to hold a large cup as well as a can or small cup. I took out the center portion that rotates down to hold the bottom of the cup and made a new one with a piece of 1/4" aluminum sheet. now the small cans as well as large cups stand upright as they should. A little fancy work with a dremel tool on the back of the new piece enabled it to rotate upward as easily as the original.

I installed the Santana cup holder today. After I figured out that it needs to be mounted to the rear of the slot to clear the mechanism when it opens.
