Default Re: Need fix for cracked vinyl center arm rest

I don't understand why nobody is making wooden lid bases for the 60/40 flip down consoles, since this is such a common problem. Whenever I put pressure on mine I can feel it breaking. As soon as it does i'll be making a new base out of wood.

part# arm100 from rockauto.com





removed the old pin and trash the old composite unit



one of two issues i did have was the bolts where not long enough to reach the nylon threads but a easy fix with some 1/2 inch longer bolts i had laying around

2nd issue was the back needed a few light taps with a hammer to form up to the armrest again no big deal



a couple of screws and installed







unit is as solid and tight as can be and only took a 1/2 hour to do

thanks to Fx4wannabe01 and dadstruck off rps for helping me find this thing

one more note is i ordered this thing Friday and was waiting for me on Monday cant argue fast shipping
