Removing armrest plastic top driver side

Sun May 03, 2020 11:00 am

I need to replace or refurbish the silver colored plastic armrest top (driver´s side with all the buttons) as it has become scratched and ugly. I see that there is an older post describing this as a problem. Is it possible to remove and replace this plastic piece without removing the whole door panel (which I am reluctant to do myself)?

I don’t believe so. Fortunately, the i-MiEV door trim comes out rather easily and without clips breaking.

There should be a thread detailing removing the trim.
