Passenger side cup holder removal

Dies anyone know how to remove the passenger side cup holder? It looks like it is part of an assembly housing the AC vent and below that the cup holder. A little confused. Thought I might ask prior to trying to get the broken one out

BIG thanks

Out of curiosity how much did a new cup holder cost? Mine is also broken and the ones I saw were almost $200.

Hi there,

Try www.bmrparts.com. Huge selection of BMW parts used and re-conditioned. Usually about 50.00 for the cup holder.

Hope this helps,
Joe
