    Evening All,

    I purchased a New Shape A1 4 months ago and it didn't come with an armrest so I decided to order all the parts and retro fit it myself.

    Here's a quick quide.

    Remove rear holder using a trim removal tool.

    This exposes 4 bolt threads that are welded to the chassis of the car, two of which have nuts on which secure the centre console trim down. Remove the two nuts with a 10mm socket or spanner. You'll need this two nuts and an extra two nuts in order to fit the armrest bracket in place.

    Place armrest into onto the 4 bolt threads that protrude the chassis and tighten the 4 nuts onto this bolt threads with a 10mm socket or spanner.

    Finally clip rear trim on top back of armrest. The picture below actually shows me remove it.

    I purchased it from the parts request on here. cost me just over £300. I had to assemble it as it came in individual pieces. I'm actually selling the armrest if you're interested. Ive purchased a new car you see. The link is below to the Ad which has pictures.
