Unhappy reversing armrest

I took the console off, and got the piece that the armrest bolts into and tried to flip it around but that won't work b/c of the bolt holes and stuff...anybody wanna help a brotha out?...hanks...



....one very frustrated sea lurchean......

I'm also interested in this... I'd rather not leave a gaping hole in the center console.

I did mine, it wasn't realy that easy. You take the armrest off(not the console) and pull off the two round covers on each side of it, they're just clip-ons. There is a round clip on one side which you have to try to take off without messing it up, once you take that out you can pull out the shaft that goes through the armrest itself. Mine wouldn't come out very easily so i had to hammer it out(note: use something with a soft head to hammer it out, because if you use something solid you can tear up the plastic end on the shaft and the clip won't go back on.) Once you get the shaft out, just turn the metal bracket around and slide the shaft back through and replace the clip and you're done. The hardest part was just getting the shaft out because you have to line it up since the ends are squared. Hope this helps, good luck
