I would pull the ashtray insert itself and see what is causing it to malfunction. Be sure you can view inside and see whats in its way. Sometimes it is a wire and/or connector bunched-up behind the sliding part.

If necessary, take the two phiilips screws out and remove the holding assembly and check its movement as well as whats behind it.

thanks for the rapid response!

i did in fact pull the ashtray insert out,had a good look but could not see any obvious cause .

i do not use it as an ashtray,but more as a coin holder for parking meter payments.

where are the two phillips srews you mention?,maybe there is something(a coin) behind the sliding assembly causing it to not close .
