I also went through this with my 2.3...Nov 99 build. Dealer was completely unfamiliar with procedure, but armed with info from this board, the parts manager found the replacement, and made the swap...no charge.
What strikes me as even worse in your case..I SAW the part invoice for the cupholder, and the price was listed as $25!!! Installation takes maybe five minutes,tops, IF the attaching screw at the rear is used. At least in my case, the fit itself was so tight that NO work needed to be done...no labor time at all! If yours is charging $50, he is really putting it to you. Resist!
