just got done installing my new honda armrest

and it looks and feels great....much better improvement over the skinny one (no big news there).

it wasn't difficult at all to install, i did end up cutting the seat fabric, but as soon as i got done the install, i regretted it, because i really didn't need to cut as much as the instructions suggested.

ah well.

bought the armrest from handa-accessories and was here in 8 days.

Re: just got done installing my new honda armrest

Does that block the use of the cup holders?


Also, do you need to remove the passenger's armrest?

Gets in the way of the cupholders and seat belt latch somewhat, but it is worth the inconvenience. Besides, it flips up out of the way. Don't need to remove passenger's armrest.

Thanks for the heads up Cappucino! I cut just the bare minimum as you implied. Looks great, a snap to install. Thanks again!

Re: just got done installing my new honda armrest

I found the install of the big armrest easy. It took me less than 20 minutes. Two small cuts and that is it took. The armrest does get in the way of the back cupholder. The armrest does swing out of the way very easily. It is one of my favorite additions.

Doesn't it look weird when sitting next to the stock passenger-side armrest?

Re: just got done installing my new honda armrest

We got one as a Christmas present...I'm going to install mine in the next couple of days. We have a LX, so I do not have any factory arm rests, so I will have to do a little more cutting. Anyone have any tips for me before I do this?? I'm just going to follow the instructions word for word...I may make my cuts a little smaller, I can always cut more if needed.
