4th gen arm rest question

how do the arm rests remove from the door and rear panels...i was thinking about redoing them but can't seem to figure out how the rear ones come out without removing the whole plastic panel...don't want to break anything so your help is greatly appreciated.

Re: 4th gen arm rest question

you need to remove the entire door and plastic panels, and i'm pretty sure there's clips from behind. to take the rear panels off your gonna need to take the rear seats out.

Re: 4th gen arm rest question

once you have the door panels off its actually really easy to get the armrests out, its just bent metal tabs that hold them in, unbend the tabs and they come right out

Re: 4th gen arm rest question

that's good but it's the rear ones that i heard are a pain...that they are stubborn around the window...where are the pins/clips/bolts to take the seats out...they're probably getting reupholstered since they have to come out anyways...just gonna make one big project out of it...

Re: 4th gen arm rest question

taking the rear seats out is extremely easy. and the side panels if i remember correctly are a few bolts and tabs, nothing too extreme. it's a little harder getting them back on and getting it all lined up right. not bad though, not at all a day project maybe 2-3 hours.

for the rear seats the clips you pull are under and in the middle of each cushion, just lift it up and you will see them
