    I have a 2003 Ford Expedition,one of the back captain seats armrest has unscrewed itself. My question is how to get the stud out of the armrest to reattach it to the seat.

To tighten the NUT that holds the armrest on the 2nd row captains chair first undo the seat cover plastic snap together on the bottom of the back of the seat, then remove the phillips head screws that hold the plastic seat back under the corpet back, to do this i just poked the screwdriver thru the carpet, you can feel where they are, as a not leave the seat folded down so the screws dont fall ouy of their holes. now with a skinny arm reach under the plastic and work your hand to the nut and tighten it up as good as u can, unfortunatley i dont remember the nut size but you will need a boxend ratchet or a ratchet with a long extension and a swivel or perhaps the screwdriver handle driver and tighten it up. hopefully if it came all the way out you can find the nut, its at least an 11/16. it wouldnt hurt to put locktite on the threads if its all the way out. hope his helps

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.

Pretty simple actually. Sounds retarded but here ya go:

Unscrew all the screws visible. This includes the armrest if applicable.

Get a tool from your local auto parts store that looks like a small pry bar that has a little slot in the middle. it almost looks like the weed puller you use to remove dandelions. Seriously...you'll know it when you see it. This thing is a gem and works on ALL door panels. Slip it inbetween the door panel and the metal part of the door and start popping out the panel. You really want to get behind the plastic fastners if you can. Once you get to panel loose, you want to detach any electrical connectors from the door panel switches.

After that, use a little force to work it upwards to clear the door itself. the seal that is butted up against the glass is sometimes tight.

Do what you need to do and installation is in reverse order.

By the way, that tool is less than $10.00!

Good luck and post if you have any problems.

How to remove interior door panel on 2004 ford expedition?


First pop off the door open handle back plate with a screwdriver. It just snaps on. Do the same with the switch cluster plate below which also snaps in place and remove the switch harness connectors. Next pop off the small narrow cover plate under the armrest pull handle to expose 2 Torx screws. Remove these screws. Next locate a Phillips screw in a retaining cup which is located on the end of the interior door panel just above the latching mechanism and remove that. Locate two 3/8" hex head screws at the bottom of the door panel and remove those. Grab the door panel by the armrest handle and pull up to unhook it from the door. If its the driverside door, you will also have to diconnect the mirror adjustment switch connector to free the door panel.

The only screws holding the door panel are the ones holding the armrest in place. You may find them under the armrest. Remove them. and then using either a trim stick or a small scraper or screw driver, feel around the edges of the door panel for the clips that are holding it in. If you use a screwdriver, use a pair of them as this will give you an even pull since you will put one on each side of the clip and then pull outward. Use a moderate tug to get them loose, not pulling too hard. I prefer to work from the bottom up to the top. Once you have that loose, you will need to get hold of the glass and walk it back into the track. Probably best to have a helper to hold onto it in case you find you need a tool that is not within reach.

Hope this helps.

Arm rest


normally there is a pressure spring and by pushing in on the armrest it will come out but you have to get it in the right position but if you don't understand what I am saying if there is a car upholstery shop or a trim shop they can also assist you with this
