How to Install ARMREST

Here's the install as promised. Pictures are numbered in lower righthand corner.

1 Arm rest from donor car (2007 Cobalt LT Cashmere Metalic).
2 Arm rest mounting bracket before cleaning.
3 Arm rest mounting bracket after cleaning and paint.
4 Removal of rear cup holder. This just snaps out.
5 Removal of park brake trim. This just snaps out.
6 Insert mounting bracket through opening. As you can see hole is too small so unscrew back of console (Two 7mm screws) so you can spread it a little bit.
7 Drop mounting bracket in position and screw the four 10 mm screws at each corner.
8 Insert Arm rest and slide into slots at front, screw two 10mm screws at back of bracket securely.
9 Insert shorter cup holder into place.
10 Re-install parking brake trim and Voilà.


Probably a 20 minutes job if you don't take pictures. Hope this helps somebody.

I didn't have to touch my parking brake, just removed the original cupholders and had the room.

Easier to access the front bolts of the base bracket without parking brake trim though.

wow I dunno what I was thinking, but yes youre totally right about the trim piece. For some reason I read to remove the parking brake and thought you meant the whole handle part.
