I'm unsure how to remove the center armrest from my V8. I cannot see any clips anywhere. I want to redye the leather on the armrest, as there are now a few cracks in the leather. I just can't work out how to get it out.
I'd also like to remove the 'map holder' attached to the rear bulkhead too.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers all
Adam

97 Would have been much easier lol

Map holder is easy, carefully pry back the carpet on the sides and you'll see two screws on each side. Unscrew those and the map holder comes off.

The center arm rest will be a little trickier. To remove the small pad, Remove the two screws that face the rear on the shifter surround. Lift the small pad out. You'll see two fasteners for the center console. If you are luckly, you my be able to pry the rear center pad out but i doubt it. You may have to remove the whole center console to remove the rear pad.
