    Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, this was the most relevant centre arm rest discussion I could find.

    I've snapped the catch on my arm rest lid, wondered what my options are?

    Can the lid be removed? I've had a good look but other than prying at the hinge I don't see how else it could be done? Any tips before I break it even more?

    Thanks.

    The lid can be removed, it is quite a PITA

    All you need to do is lever the arms towards the centre one at a time and it should pop out, when I did mine I constantly felt like they were gonna snap but they didnt so dont worry

    Last time i checked a new black leather one from Audi was £80~

    People have repaired them in the past with a magnetic door catch, unless you move your armrest into a vertical position a lot it's rarely a problem.

    Mines held shut with self adhesive velcro, it's been fine so far.
