    Hi all

    if you look on the later q7 models ie 2012 that have the comfort armrest , the exposed cup holder has chrome trim around it.

    anybody know if this trim can be retro fitted to earlier models.

    if yes does anyone have the part number ?

    Posting prices isn't worth it as prices rise weekly, but confirm its the correct part please.

    Finally got the part for the comfort armest. (Click on above for bigger picks of the part)

    cost of part was £13.44 including vat.

    Any ideas on how to take the armest apart to, fit the part.

    So far.....

    1) Removed the rubber base of,the cup holder - this just pulls out,

    Then noticed hex screw, undone and removed .

    2) did the same for the other cup holder (cup holder that's under the hinged lid ) in the armest(removed rubber base - removed hex screw)

    3) removed phone dock , removed rubber surrond where the phone dock is - this then revealed to more hex screws - removed both screws.

    But nothing - I have looked at the ETKA drawing of the cup holder in its dismantled form , but still can't work it out.

    also lifted the whole of the armrest up to look at the bottom - couldn't see any screws.

    Any help,would be appreciated thanks.

    Looks good. Hard to do in the end? Is the cup holder still the rubberised one? Almost looks like matching leather!
