    If you remove the rear ashtray, look behind there with a torch which si ewhere the armrest arm would bolt in, hopefully that brackets already fitted to bolt into.

    The mounting bracket is the metal thing in the pic. As Nigel says, you have to unattach the back of the console, lift it up and manouevre the bracket under it. If you take the plastic insert out from under the handbrake, you should be able to see the upward-facing bolt it attaches to.

    EDIT: Found you a fitting guide, Click here.

    Jeff..... Indeed mate.

    all that's left to do is the lights, want them bright white light instead of yellow and the ride height sorted. Then I will be happy...... For a bit, lol
