Ash tray door

Can someone post up a home grown solution or a link to the correct replacement product AND a step by step walkthrough of how to fix the dreaded ash tray in console door problem many fox bodies seem to have where the door just flops open and won't stay closed.

That was an easy one Dodgestang.
I always bragged that my 1990 Fox with 75,000 2 owner miles had a working ashtray door, they ALWAYS break.

Leave it open. Problem solved.

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.

Duct tape. Tear off two pieces and apply to each side of the thumb tab, paint to match the interior color and enjoy.

Duct tape is not the right answer, because if you read my signature, it says that I am the Assistant National Head Judge for 3rd Generation Mustangs for the Mustang Club of America. I have been in this position since 2008 and have very much been enjoying the job. I have met some fantastic people and judged quite a few over the top amazing cars. Some of the cars that I judged had a good foundation but needed to be brought up to better standards. I worked with the owners and one of them just received his Blue Grill Medallion. This is a very rewarding job!

I leave it open, and have shoved a 2-can beverage holder in its place. :-)

The ash tray door, the door handle cups, and the sun visor vanity mirror door were the first things to go.
