Nice work, T3nnant. You did pretty much what I did, except I didn't take pics.

Excellent post mate. Think this needs to be a sticky as is a popular mod.

Well done fella.

I've done exactly the same and from the looks of it I've bought the same arm rest - I was very annoyed with it as it was squeaky as hell which made me get rid of it and buy another center console to get rid of the hole. I'd be interested to get another one however only if it's not making any noises, can anyone recommend me something?

I know exactly what you mean sadly im not sure there is anything you can do. Im guessing its the lid so possibly have some sort of lip on the inside made of a soft material rubber

Modding along nicely!
Well today i got around to fitting my nice new leather armrest. Was a tad worried attacking the centre console with the dremmel but all worked out tickety boo & i am well chuffed with the end result.
The excellent guide & pics on this thread made the fitting that bit easier.

Cheers

I finally got around to fitting it, i did have some ideas on what i would expect. It was easier than i thought though!



Heres how i did it :) Retrofit

Thanks for this guide..I recently purchased my A4 Avant SE Quattro estate and the clip on the arm rest is broken and am currently trying to source a leather one to match the interior - which looks similar to yours.

This will take the stress out of the refit and save me making any silly mistakes! :blush:
