I think when that happens you need to rip apart a good chunk of the center console.

It screws in from underneath if I recall. You could also try popping off the top half of the track that is exposed, screw it back in, then reseat the track.

the way you normally remove the armrest is to place it partially open and lift hard from the cup holder. So, just pop the bar it's attached to up, screw on the armrest and push it back on. No big deal.

Too many questions I know but I lost the screws when they came loose. What do I replace them with? Headed to Lowe’s and play around with maybe some metric cap screws.

Never too many questions. My advice is to remove the other armrest, and match the screws.

Fun fact I just watch the video that I sent you and realized it's my friend and neighbor Ammar, I recognized his voice.Small world. :p


I have now saved over $2k by posting my DIY projects. I’ve now replaced my instrument cluster and now this. Thank you all so much
