The armrest tambour door on my S204 is suddenly proving difficult to open. I seem to need to force it open now, and being somewhat heavy-handed am concerned it will break totally. I have checked and as far as I can see, there is nothing blocking it. Any thoughts? Can I get to the back of it without dismantling half the car? Cheers

Sorted! It is actually called a cup holder compartment roller cover and replacement part number is A20468076079051 - got one on ebay for £6.99 including p&p

Replacement vid below for anybody with same issue. The problem was some of the the 'ribs' underneath the cover had come loose. Quite possibly could have glued them back, but at £6.99, not worth the hassle (and probably had the wrong glue anyway!)

Just a picture of what the reverse of the door looks like
