Install Center Console/armrest 5-sp Manual LS

I have a 5-speed manual '09 Cobalt LS and I would like to install a center
armrest/ console but the ones I have found on the internet at chevy places
all specify "automatic only"

I tried to find an auto at the salvage yard to see the reason but couldn't find
one.

Does anybody have any information on this?

Weird, I don't think it makes a difference. I drive a 5 speed and just bought an arm rest and it went in fine. Didn't have to specify transmission.

They were only put in automatics from the dealer but it will fit in manuals. I've seen plenty of people do it on here with manuals.

i just installed an armrest in my 05 manual. fits like a glove, except the armrest i got was from a junkyard. mine was broken on the inside, so the armrest would go all the way forward, i opened it up and glued the pieces in place.

word of advice, try not to put a lot of weight on it, it's all cheap plastic that snaps very easy. i almost wish i bought an armrest from gm, but i got it for under $20 at the junkyard.

Too much. Hunt one down from your local junkyard. Should go for about $50. Don't forget the mounting brackets and the different cup holders.

they're not that pricey. but way cheaper if you get it at the JY yourself, and thatway you know you get all the pieces.

Those 2 you posted don't have bracket or cup holders.
