Are people having better luck installing these? Have a 17 EXL & the rest suck it's driving me crazy.
I would take it to a Honda dealer, mine charged me $35.00 It was the first they had ever removed. I gave up after about 4 hours. Some people make out better. Now I can pop it off and on in about 2 seconds. I have to admit I do love the new arm rest!!!!

I'm expecting my 6" ratcheting armrest any day now so I thought I'd see how hard it was to remove the OEM armrest.


I lowered the armrest to about 30* then grabbed the armrest as close as possible to the seat and popped 'er off. Easy Peasy.


I took a couple pictures so you could see the keyed gear. I dunno if it will help anyone.


Sorry about the large image I don't know how to resize on the hosting site.

Thats Great! Mine took a total of three different Honda dealers. Keep in mind most have never removed one. All they have is a photo of it. The angle of the keyway is very slim. The template Jim sends out it right on. Glad you were able to remove it so easy

Wow these armrests are great. The stock '16 armrest is like a toothpick. I'm thinking of getting the 4", as I use the center console to store things and don't want it covered up too much.

Works great for me.


Keep in mind that you have to raise the seat base height to ensure the folded armrest clears the console.

would love to see pics did you do driver and passenger? what size?
thanks!!


EDIT - just scrolled up and saw your pics - nice!!
I haven't installed the Passenger yet, its a little more complicated since its non-ratcheting. I need to unzip the leather seat to get the new metal piece in there. I'll do it in another few weeks

any way to get a video for installation? would really love to order it but worried that I won't be able to take the original off and install the new one after paying $169. This armrest issue made me regret not getting a Subaru Ascent instead
