Re: Cup holder problem!!!
hmm, I have a buddy with an 03/manual trans, same cup holder location as yours, and his does have the pull out sleeves. In mine, when you pull the sleeves up out of the cup holder (as in remove them) there are only 3 small notches at the very bottom of the holder that it slides in, maybe you missed them? hopefully someone with the same generation/year as you can chime in, though.
