right then so you are unfortunate enough to not have a cup holder or yours may be broke and not sure how to fit/replace it well here we go basicaly same as removing your center console with an extra step to it so first we need to remove centre console
first part that comes out is the rear bit of it some have an arm rest some dont if you do have an arm rest lift it up to reveal to phillips screw hid inside

once you have removed those two screws pull from the back to the front so it lifts over the handbrake

when that is off you will probably come across years of mess under it and also you will find another two screws easily found

next look into your footwells toward the front of the car and there will be two recesses on the plastic inside is a screw (one each side) remove these

next to get the rest out you need to remove the bit that holds your cd player. firstly remove the ashtray, then pull the lot out and disconect any wiring that will prevent you removing out of the way.

when the cd player is out of the way you need to remove two more screws before we can pull the centre console out once again easy to spot

once the screws are out the front will be free and loose all we need to do now is grip the gear knob tight and twist it to take it off. (i usualy do ths first)

then all you do is lift it out and there we have it one centre console removed.
when all of the centre console os removed you will either see were the cup holder should go or if you have one you will see it and see two screw either side of it remove these and replace cup holder or fit your cup holder and put two screw in to secure it in place.
when it is in replace all you centre console and enjoy your new cup holder
