    so the other day the little latch that opens the armrest to reveal the first aide kit broke. went online and it seems I would have to buy the entire armrest which is expensive. if anyine knows where I could locate one in black leater, I would appreciate it.

    that latch is a joke. I am thinking of just using two velcro strips but they look ugly

    Nice, mine is broken too. I just have to pry my fingers back a little further into the slot to make it release....that's what she said.

    cool, looking forward to it. I ended up using two velcro strips near the edge of the armrest, works to hold it so I can pull down the armrest witout it getting jammed. will do for now cuz the dealer wants a bundle for the armrest.

    great job, in my case its the plastic on the cover that broke, tried fixing by using a trimmed hot paper clip but there was not enough there to attach to. oh well.

    have u guys tried epoxy? could work wonders....

    they have different strengths and such... i fixed many broken latches and other sort of things like that with epoxy....

    Epoxy will work if you use a screw thru hole. it helps keep everything in place.

    My holes on the armrest broke so that fix didnt work for me. Tried to put it back into the car then found out the 2 eyelets are broken. Now the clip is held on via duct tape.

    I know I am bumping an old thread but the photo links are dead and it doesn't help me. Does anyone know of a DIY for this broken latch?

    just use high strength velcro, no drilling needed. When you pull down the arm rest the Velcro will remain attached to the back panel. 5$ fix from home depot.

    If your cup holders are crapped out... check out ebay, $33 bucks for the full assembly.
