I recently did a trim swap and need to take off the leather padding on he arm rests. Since I will be sendin my trim out I dont want to damage it. Any suggestions on the best way to go about poppin off those leather pads??

Oh and as a sidenote, E46kid, who had been previously given a rep as a bad person to transact with, he is legit. It did take him a lot longer than it should have but in the end I got it.

TIA,

Eric

you take it off from the bottom... You will need a pair of needle nose (curved works best) and pull the metal clips down. Its a bi$ch, but it will happen.. Don't be afraid to pull really, really hard! I broke one of the plastic pieces, but its not a big deal (how they are held on is really over-kill).. btw.. becareful of the plastic tab at the end of the cover that slips into the plastic trim.
