I have a 2013 Fiesta ST but im sure this applies to any of the fiesta mk7 facelift models. Mine has a small "armrest" fitted as standard but is no where near long enough to be usable as a real armrest. I was wondering is there a replacement armrest "lid" that I could just remove the existing lid and fit a longer one? I know getting to the handbrake would be a bit of a challenge but I would love a proper armrest for the longer motorway cruises.

 

Any Ideas?

Unfortunately some of us more "vertically challenged" folk who have the seat further forward means that the current armrest is just out of reach of my elbow and therefore...useless...other than as a cubbyhole! there's gotta be a longer one somewhere that I can retrofit... :wacko:

Also can't be difficult to take the top piece off and create a track like thing, like with some armrest slide forward to adjust to arm lengths

A mate of mine is 5 foot 4, so everytime we talk about a 'short' person, their height is always called as 5 foot Phil :)

Need to find a solution for this, the armrest is too far back for me and in a Titanium X it should also be padded and covered in leather.
