The driver's door armrest has 2 large Phillips headed screws on the lower half. They are buried deep in the recesses. The passenger door (with the long additional handle part) have 2 screws in the same spot and one underneath the chrome trim piece on the very front. The cap pops off using a flat blade to get access to the screw.

The center arm rest has to be removed from inside the passenger seat. Remove the passenger seat's rear panel for access to the retainer.

I know how to remove only part of it. (This a project I'm working on - to ADD the armrest to my car off of a parts car). The armrest pivots on a rod coming out of the passenger seat. On the side of the armrest closest to the driver's seat there is a plastic cap covering the shaft. It's eliptical and about 2" x 3". It pops off. Take off the plastic cap. Under that you will find what looks like a piece of threaded pipe inside that has a disk threaded onto the pipe like a big nut, but it isn't 6-sided. It has a set screw in it. Losten the set screw. (hex head). Then the disk will unscrew off the threaded pipe-like shaft. When that comes off you can slide the armrest off and some of internal shaft stuff will come with it. That gets the arm rest out. You still have the rest of the shaft and what it mounts to (on the passenger seat) to deal with. I haven't gotten that far yet. I have three arm rests and one seat with the bracket in my garage and I need to take apart the doner seat to see how it works and then re-assemble it in my car.

Currently: 1967 250 SL, 1963 220Sb, 1965 300SE Lang, 1971 280SE parts car, 1972 Alfa GTV, 1965 Alfa Duetto, 1993 BMW R100R

Thanks, the rod that holds it on broke or something and it like points down now so I'm probably gonna have to replace that.
