Rear armrest cup holder broken?

I recently purchased a 2014 E250 Bluetec. I noticed that the rear armrest cup holder does not come up level when the cup holder/armrest is opened. Appears to may be missing a part/spring? Can anyone tell from the photos if a part is missing? Or can you post a pic of your similar rear cup holder mechanism so that I can try to repair it. Thanks All!!!

I think you are missing the spring or it is broken Could not find where spring was but as soon as I press button the cup holder pops up and opens

dbldpr...thanks for the pics...You're probably correct about broken spring..but I don't know where it would be attached. If you get a chance, can you shot a pic of the cup holder mechanism from the front so I can see if there is a spring/piece missing on mine? Thanks!!

Assume you're out of warranty. If it cannot be repaired, $79 sacrificial cup holder replacement here: http://www.usedautopartsyouneed.com/...330-13073.html

Ok...the mystery continues. I remove the back seat and found these items. 42 cents, pieces of paper, hair clip, and plastic pieces. I'm guessing the broken yellow plastic pieces are the parts I need to fix the cup holder. Any ideas?

14 E63S Sedan
Any luck with repairing or replacing the cup holder in the rear seat armrest? I just bought a 14 E63S and the cup holder in the rear seat armrest is broken. It looks like one of the arms is broken, but I do not know how to replace the entire cup holder unit. Did you find any instructions or anything else that would be useful? The dealership told me MB only sell the entire rear armrest for $625 + Tax & labor.
Thank you,
Kevin

Sorry, but no. I found that a small plastic piece within the cup holder mechanism was broken. Dealership said that cup holder alone cannot be replace and I would have to purchase that whole pull down arm rest...around $450. I stay in touch here if I find a solution....good luck!!

If you just bought the car, get that dealer to replace it for free, also if itís a 2014, you should still be under factory warranty or at lease the CPO warranty?

14 E63S Sedan
My 14 E63S has no warranty, used car bought as is. I was hoping I could replace the plastic cup holder assembly vs. replacing the entire armrest. The armrest for E63 has upgraded leather & to replace the black leather armrest is $625 + tax for the part + labor if I don't want to tackle the job.
Hopefully I can find some good info., but not much luck yet.
