Broke cup holders. Covertable roof problems, altinator/battery/crank shaft sensor .
Cup holder stays out. Can be forced in with a loud pop. Then hard to pull out again. Ratchet probably mis-aligned due to use. Attempting repair - difficult as you have to remove center console to include the part between the seats. CLK320
