Clip Centre arm rest!

They're totally useless, those plastic clips..had exactly the same problem. I ended up using roofing bolts, the ones with low-domed heads and X slots in them..fit them with nuts just sufficiently loose so that you can slide the armrest under the heads. It works, and they don't break.

Err - Velcro? :thumbsup:

How many people have sat in your car and tried to pull up on the armrest to stash their sunglasses, purse or wallet in there? That ripping noise soon put em off.
