Default Armrest

I think I saw a picture of a 99 sl2 that had a center armrest where I have a crap-catcher...My '99 sl2 has a place for junk to go where I think there should be an armrest (in the center next to the e-brake( ...did somebody lose/break/get rid of the armrest that should have been there? Was it an option? If so where should I look to get one? If I dont have one now will one go in the slot where my crap is ending up? my old truck had an armrest in the middle and I used to be so much more comfortable than I am now driving. Any suggestions? Oh, and I dont have an ash tray either.. just the cupholders...now I know there was supposed to be an ashtray in these cars. That I might wanna buy new cuz of the smell...lol

Both options.

Best place is a wrecking yard ($10 or less for the arm rest). Or you could search on eBay.

Yes an armrest will fit in there. You will loose one of your cup holders with the ash-tray.

the armrest was optional. i bought it afterwards from the dealership for about $80, if memory serves.

it probably would be the most cost effective if you were to search local salvage yards for it. there's only 2 screws that hold it in place. also, it's got a lock on it, so make sure yours comes with a key or is unlocked when you get it.

as far as the ashtray, i have one somewhere. if you're ever in the oxford area, let me know and it's yours...

Default Re: Armrest

I just bought one from the dealer. $70.00 and it's built to hold tapes, not cd's, if that matters. Only complaint is that it makes it difficult to buckle the seatbelt. But it sure is nice as an arm rest.

www.car-part.com is a pretty good resource.

Ashtray, I just gave a brand new one away. Maybe if he sees this post will pass it on to you?

It's Mac's lucky day; they changed the seat belt design in '99, so the fixed buckle sticks up more, and is MUCH easier to reach, esp. with a console storage box. This was one of my first beefs about my '96 when I bought it. To this day, first-time passengers still b!+ch about it. I hoped I could retrofit by just buying the fixed buckles. Sorry, no; the buckle interface is different, so you'd have to buy the outer belt as well.

Default Re: Armrest

I got one from a parts car a year and a half ago. Kept it in for maybe a month. Felt like it interfered with shifting so I removed it. Got another one now in a second parts car, still don't like it (drove it ~30 miles home) but the lock on it feels much more sturdy then the first one I had.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)
