    15 WRX armrest help

    I bought the arm rest extension, but can't figure out how to remove the original. I have read the instructions multiple times, but have found them hard to read. I've done searches here, various sites, and YouTube, but come away with nothing other than people saying it's super easy on the older models.

    Here's my problem, I am stuck on the part where the directions say to remove a single screw, and remove an interior piece after doing so. Which piece do they mean? Do they mean the metallic rectangular cup that the screw was into, or something else? If so, I pulled really hard on that metal cup, to the point of the whole console is moving, and it wouldn't come out. How do I get it out, or what part are they referring to? Hopefully someone here has done this on a 15 or newer Impreza to help me out.

    I got it figured out. The dealership offered to help, but it took the third technician to figure out what to do. It isn't the metal cup that comes out, it's the whole back panel the metal cup is attached to. In order to remove that panel, one must push down at the same time as pulling out. After that, it's easy.

    It isn't much and I'm not sure I'll keep it. If I do, I'll have to have leather put on the pad for the arm rest to match my interior.

    Subaru WRX / STI Center Armrest Extension - Off Black (Part No: J2010AG000JD)

    Way better instructions on how to remove the arm rest compared to what comes in the box:

    I may actually buy that same exact arm rest listed on the second link but I'm not sure since I didn't like it in my 07. I didn't like it because my elbow kept hitting it. So the extending one I thought was nice so I could push it away when I wasn't on an extended drive.
