If it's similar to those in past, you don't remove the stud, you have to push it back in at certain angle & rotate it, to lock it back in. Something tells me it's at about 2 o'clock, in push hard and turn down to rest position? I know I've had to play with some before getting it to go as it's supposed to. If worst comes to worst, stop at a body shop, it will take them about 2 minutes in most cases.

You may try an upholstery shop, one that deals in auto restoration, convertible tops , etc. Auto parts stores are a good resource for info. Those guys behind the counter know a lot, and may be able to lead you in the right direction. You may be able to save a few hundred bucks, maybe more.

How to fit an upgrade armrest on an x type jag?

The center arm rest is attached to the console by 2 small Hex cap screws. The arm rest and intermediate slide panel are attached to the same hinge assembly with rivets.
to replace the upper arm rest, 1st remove the assembly from the console by removing the 2 hex screws this will allow you to work outside of the vehicle on a work bench. 3 rivets hold the arm rest to the hinge. You will need to drill out the rivets using a 1/8" drill bit. and install the replacement arm rest using new 1/8" pop rivets.
see illustration

Remove center armrest hhr

Hi Konakalela, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair
Most arm rest have a round trim cover on the side of the seat that's removable. Simple remove that cover and there is a bolt behind it that holds the arm rest remove it counter-clock-wise and pull the arm rest straight outward. For further assistance go to my website. Have an awesome day Konakalela.

Been there done that. At the back of the armrest there is a little plastic panel. Remove that and you will find 2 screws. Remove those and the whole assembly comes out.

The arm rest does not move to a parallel position

Un zip the cover on the armrest and pull it up to expose the bolt hole. unbolt and remove the arm rest and see what parts are damaged, sometimes it can just be tightened.

How do you remove the armrest on the front seats?

The armrests have covers that can be removed. Locate the zipper on the arm rest. Once you unzip it pull it toward the back of the arm rest and this will expose the one bolt that hold the armrest on. You will need a large torx and rachet to get it off. Once you take out that bolt the armrest will come right off.

How do i remove the armrest on my winstar

The real real answer. If the threaded stud is in the armrest there is a clip at the bottom of it you have to push it up and pull the stud out with vice grips twisting as you pull out. If both the studs are in the chair you have to make sure the clip is pushed up & out of the way then simply line up the arm rest and push it on. It should clip into place. Hope that is clear enough. Also I would put some Lock Tight on the threads. (Blue)
