JMAC: Hey, everybody. Jmac with Latemodelrestoration.com. And today, we're going to show you how to put on a console armrest delete. Very simple to do.
Start by removing the oval access plug on the side of the console. Simply pries out of place. Then grab you a nut driver with a 5/16 ornate millimeter socket, and remove the bolts that are holding on the arm rest of the console.
Now go ahead and repeat that process for the other side. Already have ours done. Grab hold of your arm rest, and just pick it up off the console. And then roll it forward onto its top. Grab you a small flat blade screwdriver and remove the two clips at the front edge. You need to transfer those over to your new armrest delete.
It may take a little patience, because they have little tabs that dig into the plastic. With those out, move onto your ashtray. It has four little plastic tabs. You just push them in toward the center of the ashtray, and it pops free.
Now if your ashtray's broken or missing, we do have brand new replacements available. Now, you can move this heavy, clunky console armrest out of the way and grab your new light sleek armrest delete panel.
Take your two clips and put them on the front edge. And then grab your ashtray and slide it into place, and snap it. Then the two tabs on the back, you'll line that up with the back of your console. And then engage your front clips.
Grab your oval plug, snap it into place, and you're done. Now you can probably tell that this armrest delete does not match our console. But don't worry. We have you covered with a complete line of Interior trim dyes to match your interior perfectly.
