You all realize that this is like a bunch of starving paupers (us in Canada) being forced to watch you rich folk toss away bread crusts just because they bother your teeth, right? :crying:Just did in responce to e-mail question. Remove pivot pin(nut and bolt) pop end caps with small screw driver or knife. Brackec cover unsnaps. Undo 3 bolts-front takes extension and universal. Remove bracket and replace bolts. Order part No. DO9W-64-470-02 from your dealer--about $10 American.
as always you are correct in what your suggesting, check this former guide.Yeah, I reckon the pivot pin has to come out too.
Ya my wife, riding shotgun, would push hard down on the arm rest to adjust in her seat. Eventually that cracked the unit. Now with it gone, I told do not push down on the CONSOLE to do same LOL. So far so good!I also removed the tray and installed the arm rest. Although it is not as strong as the one in my previous Tribute I do like having somewhere to rest my arm. Just don't put too much weight on it. I'm keeping the tray I removed when I installed it just in case I need to remove it in the future.

Got and installed the plastic coin tray (carbon fibre look to match rest of the interior). Looks way way better and seemingly looks more 'roomy' in the cabin w/o that 'Mt. Rainer' (I am from WA lol) armrest 'Rube Golberg' design. Thx to you all I found out how to remove the armrest mess and find the tray too!Thx all for the posts here as to the lousy armrests. I have a 2016, and the armrest hinge point cracked. The thing also gets in my way when doing some 'spirited' driving. Decided to just remove it and replace with the tray thingy. Took two hrs to get it out, but did it even w/o the u-joint wrench arm I didn't have, for that last screw more inside the console.
Ordered the tray to replace it, with 'carbon fibre' look too. 10 bucks. All the info here helped me get this out and also tell me where/how to replace it with the tray. New here as to a login et all (see intros) but long time viewer, and appreciate all the knowledge and help I have gotten!
