Default Centre armrest - 21st November 2014, 08:08 PM

Anyone tried one of these armrests?

I bought one and I am having a fitting issue as it won't go right down in the rear cup holder anyone else had trouble with these?



Cheers
Billy

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. There are quite a few pieces needed to get the OEM armrest to fit, like 17, 18 left and right (instead of the existing item 15), but most of all item 3 to replace the existing item 2 as the socket for the armrest is in the back end of item 3. And, yes, the centre console has to come out to swap items 2 and 3.

Sorry, that image didn't show for me first time. That's not a OEM part and I don't know anything about that one.

Is it for gen 1 with the different (bigger?) cup holder? I can measure my gen1 if you need confirmation...


Signature..........Waiting for inspiration

Thanks for your offer but it's going back and hopefully the new one is a nice easy fit until I get a genuine mini one next year
