Well, you can imagine trying to clean a cover that has been SATURATED with child spew! only to see that I CANNOT remove the armrests. What's the point of a carseat cover that can't be removed for washing ... terrible! I really want to know how to clean this car seat, otherwise what a waste of money!
You CAN remove the armrests- quite easily actually! All you need to do is grab a small pair of pliers. Behind each armrest are two tabs. With the pliers, pull the bottom tab out. Slide the top tab underneath the bottom. The armrest will pop right off! Which means you can wash the pad seat and all!

I am assuming you are talking about the front center armrest here. You have to start by removing the back cover of the center console along with the vent louvres if equipped. I think this will expose two screws that you need to remove and the armrest will pull out. If you are trying to remove the armrest because the latching mechanism has gotten out of sync, you can fix that in the car. If that's the case let me know and I'll try to walk you through the repair process.
I'm sorry I can't think what would be near the fuse box spewing atf. Best bet is to clean it off the best you can, then get some white foot powder spray, to lightly cover the trans/cooler lines/etc, to try to pinpoint where the fluid is coming from. Also Is this a V6 or 4cyl?
On the Audi Q7, depending on country and options the child lock is either:
1. On the drivers armrest, near the window switches, there are 2 buttons with a little orange light and a picture of a little baby on them. Deselect both buttons to turn off the child locks. -OR- 2. Open the passenger doors, there is a small keyhole on the inside of the door above the latch, use your key and turn it 90 degrees to turn off the child lock.
If you look at the opposite child door lock you will see that the lever/switch is almost exactly lined up with the middle of the armrest on the door. Practice on the door you can open to slide a wide-bladed screwdriver along the edge of the armrest and into the door crack. Avoid the rubber insulation, but once you get the hang of it you will see that it is pretty easy to push the child lock into the correct position for you to open the door. Then, soak all lock mechanisms with light oil like wd-40 and work the mechanisms until they are smooth. Don't get oil on your fabric, use a rag to wipe up excess.
That would depend on the specific child's seat and what it requires for attachment points. I imagine the smaller bike frames might limit the ability to maintain clearances between the child and moving bike or rider parts.
There are a number of different schemes. Try these...
I would think that you could only get an armrest cover from a junk yard. If you went to the Ford dealership, they would probably want to sell you the leather for the entire seat and would be very expensive. Your best option may be to have someone make a cover out of matching leather by following the design of the other armrest cover in the car. Contact me at FixYa if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.
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.
If you look at the armrest side that is "away" from where it is attached to the seat, you will see a small circular cover. Using a small flat screwdriver, pry this cover off; it is held in by 2 small claws. When the cover is removed, it will expose the bolt that you need to remove to remove the armrest. Hint: tape the end of the scrwdriver so you do not deform the plastic cover or the part that the cover fits into. Quite an easy proceedure.
