Arm Rest

Does any body know how to remove the centre armrest that hangs of the drivers seat on a 16v sportpack. Mine has come lose on the 4 bolts holding it on but I can't see how to remove it or to tighten the bolts up. Cheers.

What you do is this:
Push the armrest away from the seat, it will move outwards a little. This lets you get to a spring clip which sits in a grove in the armrest mounting shaft. Pull this clip off carefuly with a screwdriver or long nose pliers. Once you have removed this the armrest will slide out another 5-6cm allowing you to tighten up the screws.

The circlip can be a bit tricky to get off and then back on again as its not too easy to see.

errr there is an easy way , just fold it in the down position push the passenger seat out of the way as not to obstruct it and give it a good old tug towards the passenger side . ive done this on both my 155's with no worries other wise you might end up with pulls in the cloth with pliers and such ( dealer told me this way).

It comes off easier if the armres is at 45 degrees to the seat upright, according to the service manual!
