How do I get the change cup out of the drivers door pocket?

I want to get the little cup with the lid out of the pocket in the drivers door. I pulled but it felt like it was going to break. I want to remove it without breaking it.

There are a couple of little plastic tabs on the change holder, they hook on the inboard (cockpit) side of the pocket. A small screwdriver or stiff feeler gauge may help to release them.

I pulled it out of both cars so I could carry my glass case.

Do I not have this because I have the center console change holder/cup holder piece?

Both my cars had them, bracketing your model year.

My '02 didn't have it either, but has the center cup holder w/ coin thingy. I think that could be it since this piece has a label with the same production date as the car, so maybe it was an either/or factory option

Hmm, interesting. I might want to pick one of these up...since I'm deleting the center console cup holder/coin holder.

Anyone have one they wanna get rid of?

It's really useless (for the amount of room it takes up) in my opinion.
Left door one part number 51 41 8 397 813 $27.25 retail
Right door one part number 51 41 8 397 814 $27.25 retail
Parts data shows up to 9/99 for NA cars which we know isn't true.

Eh, yeah, and more expensive than it needs to be. If it were $10, then I'd get it for kicks.

Hopefully my center console front tray will be in on Monday morning and I can go pick it up, as well as a mouse pad to cut up for the rear cup part.

Anyone have any use for a center console/cupholder thingy?
