The arm rest cup holder is broke such that I can't close the lid. Though, I can snap whats left of the plastic connections, it is snapped.
I don't have a solution? Not unless I purchase another used center console with a working lid. But that doesn't solve the problem. It would be just a matter of time before it breaks again. We're able to still put cups in it when parked. I don't recommend driving with liquid filled cups in the holder. Especially with it already broke. It's the only item that I have a problem with. Otherwise, it's a beautiful car and well made.
I'm proud to be a Jaguar owner.
i bought my 95 xj6 3 years ago.The third day I had it after closing the center console the hinge broke.Both visor mounts broke the first year.

I've found a website with a "fix" package for about $180. Anyone know about it?
