Default Central Armrest

Quick Q...

Is the central armrest meant to ratchet up and down so u can adjust the height or is it a plain old open and shut?

Mine basically has three positions: down, intermediate and fully up.

It also slides fwd and opens for storage.

It's a bit tricky to do all those things smoothly, however

Don't forget the position when you try to open it and it traps your fingers as it comes up.

I see you have a 2018 model so it may be a tad different. Their is no intermediate position on mine (2016 GT). Anyone shed any light if they are the same?

Mine is the same car as yours and I can also say it's the same as described.

Position 1, lowest level
Position 2, middle/medium
Position 3, max/highest

Slides both forward and back with the option of the finiky little clasp to open/close for storage.

Hope that helps mate 👍

Thanks for the clarification.

It appears mine is broken then. Damn!

Car is just out of warranty. I wonder if it would still be honored???

Lads, as always thanks for the help.

I went out this afternoon, toolbox in hand determined to fix it myself.......

I was about to start taking bits off to rebuild it at which point I noticed a small, thin piece of metal, almost like a clasp, holding the storage roof and armrest itself together! Sooooo weird!

Its as if the previous owner put it there to intentionally stop it ratcheting up and down. Due to this clasp being in place, i didnt realise their was actually two parts to the lid, I had assumed it should have racheted up as u open the full armrest itself.

Why would u ever want to do that?! My only conclusion? Previous owner was a weirdo.

Armrest in full working order 🙂

Glad it's all sorted, although mine 'does' have 3 positions, I generally find it only really has 1, because attempting any others results in it breaking my fingers and me swearing very loudly....

Haha, I know exactly what you mean. It is such a poor design and clearly an after thought.
