    OK, I tried to repair my arm rest with a kit I bought. What a mess.

    I hate to say it, but I believe "we told you so".......

    I cant picture what it looks like, but if you cant figure it out, the upholstery shop should be able to get it off for you......

    I'm sure they could take it off but I was hoping to just drop it off so they could deal with it without leaving the car.

    Maybe someone else has had this problem.

    I wouldn't try to take it off without knowing how, I wouldn't risk wrecking it.

    I've got the same problem with the arm rest. I need to replace the window switch and don't want to be worse off than now.

    Re: Arm Rest

    At the back of the switch panel is a notch. Insert a long, thin bladed screw driver in it, and push almost straight down (slight angle under the panel). This will push a spring clip forward and release the panel. Once that's lifted out (hook at front, clip at rear), 2 phillips screws on a large bracket are visible. Pull those, and then look under the 2 light fixtures for the other 2. Pop the cover like you're going to change the bulb, and then sqeeze together the 2 clips that hold the whole fixture in. Once it's pushed out of the way, you'll see the other 2 screws. On second thought, pull the 2 BACK screws first, or you'll drop the armrest on your head like I did... Hope that helps.
