Hello, gotta new 10' lx, love the car, but would like a armrest.......i've seen the storage one that they list in the parts dept...........however has anyone mounted one on a non armrest car?, I assume the seat has to be cut and theres a mounting point under the fabric?:|

Anyone have any experience with this, thanks in advance

Although i didn't use the search feature, i did go to the How to's and under interior mod i found this thread that should help you.

I don't know if a '10 LX seat has the mount point on it or not, either way look in that thread and go check your seat after you know what to look for, If there is no mount point that thread shows you what to do to fabricate something.

Poke around the side of the seat and try to feel for a mounting hole. If you feel it, make a small slit and mount your storage armrest.

thanks for the response, i just took the cover off the end.......they come off crazy easy, you can't feel the hole under the padding, but it is there., however now my little lady is telling me she dosen't want a armrest after I already got one :-(, she says it will "get in the way of her center console purse holder":twisted:

oh well, id put it on anyway, but im not about to cut the fabric just so she can say she hates it, here comes the restocking fee:|

Install standard armrests

Have a '09 that came with no inboard armrests. Do not want to install the driver side storage type armrest. Want to install the standard oem individual armrests. Is there any type of kit for that?
