Armrests
« on: 08 March 2021, 10:08 PM »
Random question: I notice some w116s do not have front arm rests. Are there kits to install those? Thanks!

All seat frames are prepared for the armrest from factory, so all you need is the armrest itself, and the mounting plate that goes on the inside of the seat back, and you can retrofit one. Plenty of used ones floating around on eBay.

You will need to cut a hole into the seat cover, so measure carefully before committing ;)
