First one snapped then the other - I might try to repair - might just adapt something - I would like to find a used one in black or tan. Are they easy to swap out? Do you have one to sell?

They're easy to replace. IIRC, you remove the two screws shown in your 2nd and 4th photos and just lift that tan piece straight up to remove the cup holder.

There is another design of the cup holder that is fixed shape - doesn't have those hinged wings to flop around and break that is interchangeable with that design. Some people prefer the fixed design for that reason. I don't know how scarce they are and which trim levels of which LH badges to look for in salvage yards, and I don't know if LH cars are easy to tind in the yards anymore. Someone here might have some tucked away to sell you.

Thanks Peva!

On eBay there is one seller who has tons of these used folding cup holders listed over many listings - each for $35 - there are even a few sellers with brand new Mopar ones for $125 - but being rather cheap, I might just first try to turn mine into a nonfolding type. There are no nonfolders on eBay at the moment. I will attach photo of my handiwork if I get it done.

Thanks for the advice!

You're welcome.
Hey - are there more than one tan color interior for cup holders? Guess I could go with black. The seller seems to be the only source of all used cup holders and with 13500 sales he does not bother to answer any questions.

There are two different "Tan" Colors on the LH cars. One Is Taupe and the other Light Taupe. The Light Taupe is usually found in the 300m Special and Taupe in the Standard 300m and Concorde..and some Intrepids. Although some standard 300m cars have Light Taupe interiors also.

What's the 4 character code found on your door jamb sticker? That tells you the seat configuration and interior color combination. I believe it's listed as "Trim" on the sticker.

The pictures you showed in your last post indicate a Taupe color for pictures 1,2 and 4....not Light Taupe.

Thanks Ron! My 2004 Concorde Limited came with light Taupe. The seller won't talk to me - so I can't ask him - but to your eye all of his listing are a darker taupe than mine.

Here is mine.

Here again are his listings

Again I need your four digit Trim code on the VIN label in the door jamb. It'll be listed as TRIM: XXXX. It might be a combination of letters and numbers.

On my door I only see this tag - and it doesn't seem to list trim.

I do have the 2004 Concorde factory brochure that states what trim color have since I have the leather "Limited" seats...

Is there a sticker on the door jamb? The door opening near the latch?

That's an odd looking sticker...almost looks like from a 1st gen car! What color is the paint? That looks weird too.

Thanks - found it. My trim is TLT5 and my Concorde's that Almond color. Like the one on the cover of their brochure from 2004.

TL is listed as Dark Taupe in the parts manuals. Don't ask me to explain the difference between your sales brochure etc.

I know for a fact that NL is Light Taupe as in my 300m Special.

The cupholder for your Concorde with the trim code you showed is:

0RD49XT5AC 1 C P [T5]

The part number is in green above. It should be either on a sticker or molded into the plastic on the cup holder. Look and see if you can find anything like that on your original.

That's about all the help I can offer. You're on your own after this.

Here's my 300m Special interior which is NLL2. Two tone Light Taupe and Dark Slate.

Thanks - this ebay seller is not at all helpful. He won't even photograph the numbers on the parts - so I might be forced to go with the black - i guess that should look alright.

Thanks very much - at least I know what I have - maybe I will wait - my bottles seem to stay put - adds a challenge.

Cheers

Looks like a Light Taupe but I can only be about 75 % sure due to the color differences between some of the pictures.

Light taupe would be Trim code L2 as in my 300m Special.

Yours should be a slightly darker Taupe for T5
