    2:25 if you are wondering what the adhesive is. It's 3M Rubber and Vinyl '80' Spray Adhesive.

    I am recovering because my stock arm rest has ripped. I feel like installing over rip will look bad. Anyone have any experience with covering a ripped armrest?

    jesus, the amount of adhesive you applied was completely unnecessary.

    Would be nice if you used a flashlight in the beginning part of the video. It was really dark. My handle came off differently, but yours helped me figure out mines. It had two screws inside. I was not careful enough to keep the screws upright though, so had to have extra holes put in to allow my husband to remove the screws and put them in the hole properly. So the screws were hidden and there was no way to reposition them without make a hole to get the screw out, then back in. But otherwise it did help some. I cut my own fabric though since everytime I ask Toyota about stuff they want me to remove everything and get brand new stuff. Thenk you, your helped me get the handle off!! I have a Toyota Prius and they made it a bit more difficult to change the cover.

    Dang, I wanted the door armrests, not the console arm rests.

    I used loctite super glue to stick the leather on the center console. Worked amazingly well, the leather stuck within seconds. No need to spray adhesives and hold it together with clips.

    Does anyone have a video on removal and install of a armrest cover for a 2005 Toyota avalon, please help.

  • MortimerEsq

    I bought one of these "skins" from these guys for my GF's Altima. (They sell on eBay under user name STVCustoms ) I figure I can handle this. After all, the armrest is pretty basic. If I screw it up I will take the armrest and leather skin to a local shop who does auto upholstery. After they are done giggling at me I will let them have at it. The skin cost me $30 shipped. The shop will charge me about $50 at most. $80 to replace her gross looking armrest, that's worth it.
    P.S. The armrest they sent is very good quality. Real leather (thick too) and the stitching is well done. Label on bag says "Made in Mexico" which as we all know is a great place to get auto leather or vinyl. The Mexicans have been making leather goods and fabrics for hundreds of years. They know what they are doing.

    Excellent instructions. I found, however, that the OEM for my Jeep used heavy duty staples. Also, my original cover was padded; therefore, I simply slipped the replacement cover over the original padded cover and used staples. It looks great and took only 30 minutes.

    What about the original padding? Does that get removed, or left in place?

    I'd let that adhesive setup a bit first before pressing/clamping it down. You'd get a much stronger bond that way.

    removal is super simple folks... just get a Philips screw drier... there are two screws... take them out and it comes right out.... you dont need to see him do it... its very self explanatory.

    I purchased the front arm rest cover for my 2008 Nissan Titan. I thought I was buying the entire arm rest.... It is only the cover when you purchase the Kar Designers cover. Not a problem though. ( Video is very dark and hard to see) It was very easy to remove the screws from the inside of the lid. Use a screwdriver to unsnap the lid from the tray. After you remove the lid, remove the old skin (keep the grey pad). Lay the new skin on a flat surface and place the lid back into the skin. Stretch around all edges and corners. Now remove the plastic lid and foam to spray the inside of the leather with glue adhesive ( I use 3M contact glue spray) Once you have completely covered the inside of the leather cover with glue, center the pad and place the interior lid on top of the foam. Pull the leather at all four corners to center the leather cover on the inner lid. Stretch the leather and use a rubber squeegee (Bondo spreader to tuck the leather into the grooves in the lid. Make sure to allow the spray adhesive to dry for a minute or two prior to pressing it into place. Once you have pressed the cover into the groove, place it back onto the inner plastic liner of the arm rest and replace the screws. When the screws are tight it will tighten the cover to the original look. My cover looks as good, if not better than the original!! Thank you!

    This is very easy but this method will not work on an 09 pilot. You want me to buy the product then show me how to remove the 100 staples and the old cover and then replace that cover.

    Was I the only one who heard someone whisper at 14:58 "You did a horrible job, that's why I'm going to redo it all!" ???

    • Flux
      Flux 2 years ago

      Actually it was him talking. He said "I did a horrible job explaining that, that's why I'm going to redo it all." Im assuming he meant shooting the video. But nonetheless he wasn't trying super hard to put the cover on that well. Looks wrinkled on the top of it when he first put it on. But the end product looks better. I think he took it off and re-did it possibly. Ultimately it's about what you do when you install it not what he does. He's just explaining it so people get the point. Clearly more care must be taken when you're doing it yourself because you're not simply making a video lol

    • MortimerEsq

    The most important part was REMOVAL. Could you reshoot it with some lighting so we can see how you did it? Even a decent flash light would certainly help!

    • Haggisdog
      Haggisdog 3 months ago

      Removing the arm rest doesn't need much explanation. It's one of the few parts of an Infiniti that doesn't require you to remove fifteen other parts first. Just remove the two screws and you're done.

    How about a video for the 1998 and later Explorer and Mountaineer and 1st gen Sport Trac? I bought one of your covers for those, which is quite a bit different from what's in this video for the later Explorer console lid.

    Just purchased your product on Amazon. I need instructions for a 2011 Raptor. Is this available? The arm rest is a completely different design and I am very scared of spraying 3M glue all over my original arm rest as I'm sure you can understand. The leather piece I got when folder over the edges cover up the screw locations for the insert as well as already has pre cuts in the leather. So nervous of starting the process without seeing it done on the correct arm rest. Thanks! Richard

    I liked your arm rest installation instructions. I couldn't see the part where you remove the 2 screws. the video was to dark. (My toyota has a panel in back and I am not sure how to remove it) Could you tell me where to buy the arm rest cover? Thanks., Gil
