I just bought a 2015 LR4 and my front cup holder comes right out when you're taking your drink out. I pulled it out and it seems like there are two metal clips missing. I went to LR and they told me I have to buy the entire unit for some ridiculous price. I just need the clips
Would any of you have any idea what I would look for? I purchased some spring clips and they don't fit, but I can't seem to find anything small enough.

Any help would be great.

I'd take those existing metal clips to an auto parts store and try and match them, or are those the ones you purchased?

Maybe try this Land Rover salvage yard for a used cupholder with clips:

Keep in mind access to this area is important for parking brake release and transmission disengagement / neutral, for us folks that don't have a proper gear selector.

These guys may be able to help.


Double check it didn't fall down inside, in a crack, etc. One of mine fell off while looking at it just now.

Thanks for all the responses! I thought about velcro, but it doesn't really sit on anything. My fiancé wants to super glue it (her fix for all things) but I told her we'll need to get it out eventually. I've tried every parts store for 50 miles and got nowhere.

I'm gonna try this salvage parts search and see where I get.

Thank you all. I'm looking forward to being part of this community!

That’s crazy - looks like an ordinary body clip. If you have two clips on one side, and none on the other, you might move one of the clips so you at least have one clip on each side. Might be a temporary solution until you find some more.

I'm a born American, but I swear it's the people that migrated from other countries that have this kind of common sense instinctively hahaha. Stupid as it may seem, some would've never thought of that. If you're a born american then cudos to you haha.
