I'm guessing you have a newer WRX based on your name. If so, it's beyond easy.

Go in your back seat, remove the cover (snaps out - be gentle).

Undo the screws, 4 if I remember right. Remove plastic cover.

The hinge for the arm rest is exposed, just take it off and put the new one on. Don't over tighten the screws.

Put everything back into place.

I got my leather one on ebay. 50 bucks shipped. Leather with red stitching. It isn't just more comfortable, this one actually stays closed and matches the interior.

ok...first thing ya gotta do is get some gasoline...about 5 gallons is plenty....then ya gotta make sure ya got a lighter that works

OK....so ya pour the gas all over the armrest and make sure ya use PLENTY of gas....do this with the armrest in the car and the car in the garage

then ya gotta use the lighter to help soften the glue on the armrest....

let us know how that works for ya

UPS compare your member number with Uncle Scottys...that gives him the seniority to throw jabs at you. All in good fun. File out your profile so we know who we are talking to. Welcome to NASIOC!

Here's the thing, the Impreza has been around since the 90's. The WRX has been around since 01 in the states. You ask a BLANKET statement on how to do something, and we haven't a clue as to what the hell you drive, you're going to get trollish responses. So suck it up like an adult. Also, fill out your profile so we know what you drive next time you ask a question.

Yeah my bad for not putting what year of car. I guess if I have no life and live on here to get 69k posts to get seniority what a joke. The proper response for an adult wood have been what year or car do you have? Not childish b.s like what uncle or you hinshaw posted. What a great way to introduce yourselves for someone just getting I into subarus.

Well that's a sure way to get help. Criticize those who CLEARLY have more experience with the vehicle by telling them they have no life. Need an ignore switch...

So, Uncle Scotty has been around for a long time on these forums, the problem that comes up all the time is people that want to be spoon fed answers. This site has been up for well over a decade at this point and preeeeeety much any question you may have has already been answered 40 times. Thus it is a bit infuriating when it is clear that the OP hasn't done any research whatsoever before asking the question. Long story short, Google is your friend.
But what is more aggravating is that there was absolutely no details to the question that would help whoever might help you in the first place. In all truth, Uncle Scotty has been very helpful to me personally many times on this forum, just do a few searches with different parameters first, and if that still truly doesn't yield a result, as a focused question.

But who knows, this might help:

I did search the nasioc site and nothing came up about switching the factory arm rest out. Or taking apart the center console. I did the research. I'm not criticizing the ones who put up a response that was looking to help but only the ones who typed out a long stupid reply. Just answer the question with a proper response to help someone. Thats all. Is that too hard to ask rather than type up some bull**** rebuttal. So what if you been around here a day or 50 years. The idea of the forum is to help out people not berate them for asking question.

I don't always agree with others methods Ups, but there is something to be said for searching a bit harder. When I searched "leather armrest install wrx" on Google this was the 2nd link http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2286493 and the 1st link was the Jpm page that also has instructions. Good luck and welcome to nasioc.

Gaugeof12 your right on the search but that showed taking the arm rest apart from the inside and I didn't want to do that. I wanted to replace the whole arm rest. Thanks for the help.

For the love of Zombie Jesus. Don't tell someone to PM you their address, you're not a damn bigger person. Grow some skin.
