    Arm rest.

    Forum Key Rings
    My centre console arm rest is damaged and I am looking at options to reapair or replace. My car is an early facelift with an electric hand break. Are they all? EBay has managed to confuse me because some adverts say 09-13 which suggests a change for the facelift others just say Insignia and some even say 09-15?

    Does anybody definitively know if the prefacelift and the facelift arm rests are the same or not?

    They're all the same but early models had the traditional handbrake....but they all fit.

    That's great thanks for the replies much appreciated. I now have to work out how to get it off. YouTube is usually great for things like this but, there appears to be not a lot of insignia related videos for some reason?

    What is wrong with it?

    Is there damage to the console itself or just the arm rest that lifts up?

    If itís just the arm rest this is easy to remove. If you need to remove the whole centre console itís a ball ache and I think you may need to remove front seats

    The fabric is torn. So it is just the arm rest which lifts up. I suppose technically it is just the fabric cover which needs replacing.

    I’ve got my car now, defiantly needs arm rest replacing. Can anyone give any info on how to remove the arm rest only without pulling the whole console out. Cheers ��������

    I am also very interested in hearing from anyone who has done this job. I am guessing that you have to take the rear vent assembly off to access the arm rest fixing?

    Really could do with a little how to from this guy as he sounds to know what is needed to be done to remove just the bit that lifts up.
    Please Pondy give us a clue.
