    confused How do I remove the Armwrest and all of the surroundings

    Hi there,

    I need to get at my airbag module, how do I get the center piece in the picture out of the car, i been trying for past 2 hours and just can't figure it out I swear I've undone every torx there.

    The module is inbetween the Handbrake and gear lever.

    Thanks

    Start at the back of the arm rest. Remove the ashtray and aux cover, you will then see 4 torx bolts and 2 torx screws. Remove them. There is a blanking plate under the handbrake lever, remove that and there is a screw under there too.

    As above but you will need to put it in gear and put the handbrake off as the back of it covers the torx screws. and there is a screw under the cup holder if you didn't get that one as it splits in two.
