Mark2 Armrest Assembly and Installation Instructions
Before you begin to install and/or assemble your Mark2 Armrest, please note: we are here to help. Do not force anything. If you have questions, contact Andy via email or call 513.706.1834. I don't get to talk to my customers very often, and it's one of my favorite parts of LeatherZ work. There is no such thing as a stupid question and I will do whatever I can to make you a satisfied customer. - Andy Maddux
The procedures for assembly of a Mark2 Armrest are here. These only apply to you if you have bought an armrest only. If you have bought a complete unit from LeatherZ, already assembled with a new BMW coinholder-cupholder, these do not apply to you. You can go straight to installation below.
The tools and procedures required to install a Mark2 Armrest vary based on what is currently installed in your car. Since its introduction, the Z3 has been with 1 of 5 basic configurations. Click on the picture that looks like your car:
