    both my ashtrays (the plastic 'bucket' that fits into the hole in the console and the area between the seats in back) are broken. the metal lids are fine, although they don't work since the plastic nubs on the bucket dont keep it in place. and the actual lighter and its receptacle work fine.

    so the question is, can somebody direct me to where i can buy that plastic bucket part?

    Ross- Looks like it is only available as a unit unless you find a used one. Kind of expensive. Naturally, different from the one in the 456, apparently, because there are a couple of those on e-bay.

    yes i saw that on eurospares for 183 pounds, but they did not have any in stock. pricey because it has the lid, the lighter, and the receptacle - none of which i need....argh

    but thx for reminding me about ebay...i will look.

    if anybody on here is parting out a wrecked 456m, please keep me in mind

    i am absolutely positive that this ashtray 'bucket' is an off-the-shelf part from fiat. there is no way they made one special for so few cars.

    so....has anybody figured out what fiat it came from??

    You could try to drill a hole with the size of the nubs at the place where the nubs were. Then glue in a metal replacement nub made of a nail or exhausted drillbit.

    This is a common repair on the nubs of the window switches on the Porsche 964. With full metal nubs they last.

    both buckets are so broken that i would have to get very creative to glue them all back together just to prop up the lid. so the fixing advice is good but not practical in this case.
    thanks

    need to find the fiat equivalent !

    If you're not going to install the official part then what about installing cup holders?
    They come in pretty handy after you've picked up a Starbucks.
    And who wants anyone smoking in their Ferrari?

    I thought the 2006 430 ashtray contains the whole shebang. (see second and third pics). Am I wrong?

    Here's a posting for just an ashtray bucket, but it looks like it's for an earlier model:

    thanks for making me look again. that 430 part might work, but boy is it pricey !
    you also prompted me to refine my ebay search, and altho i did not find another one, i do know how to look for one in a better way. that second link you sent is not the right part tho.

    At $115 including shipping for "buy it now" maybe, but, as far as I could tell, the current bid is 99 cents, though the reserve hasn't been met. If I were in your circumstances, I'd bid the max I was willing and see if it broke the reserve. If not, you can always negotiate via a PM. And isn't your time worth a few $$? :D

    (This reminds me: why don't we have a euro symbol on standard keyboards. Above the 6 is a circonflex (hat) that I never use. Why not put it there?)

    Old thread but is there an ashtray PN other than 65471400 ($400) that will work per the OP original question for a 456M ?

    Both of my “buckets” are broken/cracked. Only flaw with the car.
