    Hia all, this is my first question and it's probs been asked a thousand times, well at least for 11 year anyway lol, don't worry I expect to get shouted at and called a noob haha, my centre console armrest lid catch is broke, so is it best to just get the catch or the full lid, something like the egay ones, and that will be my first task achieved, any help would be great, cheers

    Hia lawrence, OK mate, I've seen a vid were you basically prise the front of the lid up with some screwdrivers, get any broken plastic bits out, hold the gap on the lid open wiv a few pegs while you install new catch. Is that about the jist of it mate? Cheers.

    I used some plastic trim tools to prise the top off completely, then remove the old bits, put the new bits in, then clip the top back on. Paid about £5 for the catch and spring from eBay.
