I am waiting for a recall on this. Several other people also reported the same thing. It is a faulty retainer spring. Take it back to the dealer.

I discovered that trying to force a one liter bottle into the cupholder causes the flap to fly off. Took me 5 minutes to find it and 2 minutes to reattach it. No problems thereafter.
