Passenger armrest pad

Postby david buchanan » Tue Mar 22, 2016 9:12 am



Have a 2002 1800, the arm rest pad blew off the other day, ordered a new one, does this require some form of sealant to keep it in place? Dealer did not say anything about it, no instructions either. Thank you for any help.

I believe it to be 2 screws from underneath.

What arm rests do you have? I have kurys and they have 4 screws underneath to hold the on. Sounds like you will need new bolts if the new pad doesn't comes with them.

The new pad is OEM, it has about six little brass colored pins, that fit in place above the back speaker grill. There are no threads or nuts either, I,m baffled to say the least.

Could they have been rivets?

Take a look at this You Tube video. It will show how the arm rest pad and speaker grill comes apart on a 2006. I hope yours is similar.

My new pad looks just like this one, see the pins just hanging there, nothing on them that I can see. He doesn't show the bottom that long to get a good look.

At the back of the pad there is 3 clips that slot in and on front of pad there are two clips one of mine was loose and i found that it had not been cliped in right at the back and the steel clips in front were missing so was really only just sitting there

the best thing to do is to slot in the arm rest then using a large blade srewdriver push down each clip while pushing the front of the cover back to lock it in properly

Thanks for the tip firey1, I even called American Honda, they couldn't help either, said they did not have the service manual on hand to look. I haved looked at my Clymer manual, no help there as well.

You can remove the passenger armrest from the opposite side and see how it is attached.
