Removal and repair of coin holder in center console

Because I purchased my 330Ci used, I've been going through the car repairing minor problems. One problem I've come across is that the previous owner tried to fit a quarter into the nickel slot on the coin revolver (which he was successful in doing). So now there is a quarter stuck in there which I can't get out. How do I go about removing the revolver and dismantling it so I can get that damn quarter out and actually be able to use the thing?

LOL, the same thing happened to me, except i was the one who stuck the quarter there.

First you have to pop out the cup holders, then the coin holder should pop out too. Take apart the coin holder but be sure you know how to put it back together, there are alot of springs and what not in there. I just took a metal nail file and pryed the coin out really easy. No scratches, no nothing. Never again will I put a quarter in there though.

Good luck.

i have a question...i put coins in the holder for the first time today...do you have to flip the holder back to the down position to put the armrest down cuz when i put the armrest down, it pushes down the coin think like a spring...leave it opened or closed!? I dont want the coins to fall into the abyss but i dont want to break the coin think but pushing the armrest on top of it

just flip it back over so its flat once u put ur coins in. to get the coin thing out, first remove ur cupholders, and the coin holder will snap out of place. after u remove the coin holder assembly, disconnect the sprign and u shoudl be able to work it out by urself.
