You might have to remove the sunglass bit, must click out or spring or screw ?
Maybe something is caught behind it ?

If no joy they are pretty cheap to replace, don't really remember but think l only paided $35 for one from the stealers to put in my over-head console. You could also try TritonWreckers, but as Duck said, probably only a spring come lose.

There is a metal pin that falls out. It only a few millimeters long. I used a pop rivit shart and cut it. Bit fidly to get in but worked a treat. No pictures unfortunetely.

Thank you! I was trying to think what I could use to replace the lost pin, and a cut down rivvet shaft did the trick. Perfect.
