I was talking about the one between the front seats?
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.
