Ok so I've seen a few past posts about people saying they wanted to fit armrest. 

 

I was wondering if anyone actually got round to it. if so how did they go about it.... 

 

Equipment 

 

Possible guides 

 

difficulty level 

 

time frame taken.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

P.S for those that read previous thread. I nearly have my car back... YAY ME!!!

Although this may not be the exact arm rest you're looking for it gives you a rough idea on how difficult it is to fit and also what you all need to carry out the task. In my opinion it looks rather easy to fit, despite that the arm rest displayed in the video looks rather ugly.

Boomerang is the one to go for.

I have he one from boomerang, would not buy again.

Its not tight and firm, its bouncy. Also the cupholder is also loose and slides forward when i brake hard.

Have heard at the one from Armster is better.

Sounds like you got a dodgy one, mine didn't have those problems. The reason I recommend the Boomerang one is as it bolts on to the floor using existing holes is so sturdy whereas the ones that screw in to cupholders wobble as the centre console is flimsy.

Right so a few moths ago I find one on Amazon and order it from ford Allen parts ... This is what I got instead the pelican one . Posted it straight back as I think it was awful and got my money back (see pic of what I ordered and what is actually received - terrible thing!! ) they say even though they still list them on amazon ect they don't have them in stock so send out the pelican required 5 holes to be drilled out of my center console and these metal pop stud things hold it place . You get instructions to fit one . Bit I'm going to track down the polytec armster for my car via my local ford dealer soon ....image.jpg

Typical Allen Ford.

They don't have a good reputation on this club.

I've been looking at getting one of those cheepish ones on eBay from Germany I think.
They just fit inside of the original cup holder, I'm sure I heard somewhere that they were good
