Hi there,

I'm after a centre console armrest for my 2008 Focus Style. The car came without one which I guess is standard spec.

I have found one on eBay, however, the colour of the plastic looks different to mine. [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261088582012?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649"]Link[/url]

Mine is more like this colour: [img]http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m174/scottishguy1981/06072007288.jpg[/img]

Any idea where I could get one despite eBay. I tried a few local scrappies, but all they had in where LX's and Style's!

Was there two colours on the interior? I believe there are also newer type centre consoles in the Zetec 2.5, but that has the 12v cigarette terminal in the console itself, is that easy to re-route?

Thanks,

I managed to get hold of one today from a scrapyard in Swinton called Salvage King. £60 inc VAT. These gor for £90+ on eBay.

What do you guys think? I missed an armrest! I also fitted the Sony DAB radio last week as well.

I like.
I'm planning to attempt fitting a facelift console in my MK2 and have started getting parts together to do so.
I have tte console top civer on the way and just need the spare 12v socket (on the way) and main console part now.
Part of this process is a 12v socket doubler so as to keep my original cubbyhole socket and fit another one in the rear storage area or where some facelift consoles have a keyless start button.
I bought this to allow an extension socket to be run off from the original unit.

Looks much better with an armrest, the centre console looks complete now. Nice job.

I know. They guy in Swinton was sound. This is why I did my searching around after seeing that one on eBay, Bargain I think. And after market armrests that you screw in are £60 upwards.

4 socket screws. Two under the gear stick/gator. Two in the back under the panel. Hardest part was actually getting the thing out because the handbrake was in the way. I had to unscrew the handbrake adjuster and pull it up to get it off. 30 min job.

Hi, nice work, I did the refurb too! However my armrest covering is a bit dirty, cigarette marks etc, and I can't seem to remove the top armrest covering to clean it or replace, there are no screws visible... have you any ideas how to take it off?

dondryder
Here's a pic to help! There are 4 tabs on each side that have unclipped but the rest of top plastic cover wont budge!
 
Any ideas how to get it off? The armrest came from a 2007 ford focus cc.
 
I'm also looking for the plastic (garage door) panel for rear of armrest if anybody can help? ^_^

When I had my 09 plate Style I fitted a cenre console from a Titanium. Was a right pain in the end as the Handbrake surround, gear surround and the panels that go on the front and under the dash were all completely different shapes. Fortunately they weren't too expensive from Fords and I got the main part cheap from eBay.

Does anyone have ideas on how to get this armrest cover off?
