Q: how do you remove the arms?

A: There is a roll pin in the bar between the seat and the arm. It is a bit of a bugger to get to, mine is at about 45 degrees. Back to front: Low to High


toolsntat: Got an arm thats off here and want to fit it. Do you have to put it all the way on and then insert the roll pin ?

Any cut away pics anywhere??

R0B: This might help you Andy..Weide family/vanagon Click on interior then armrest repair

toolsntat: Mmmm looks like the blob of repair weld needs grinding then to make the socket piece swivel inside the arm

Right I need to take the trim off the arm to sort this out. There are 2 screws to remove the plastic shroud but 1 is under the adjusting knob. Does the knob come off the shaft at all?

jwhitestar: Yes it just pops out. Plastic is quite brittle so be careful! Maybe get the hair drier on it beforehand then

toolsntat: Following on from this I have now stripped back the armrest and here are the pictures of the process...
