2004+ Center Console Armrest Retrofit and Troubleshooting

As far as the blades go, no retrofit. You probably would have to replace the whole arm. The armrest is cool, since it does open from either side. You might have to replace the whole assembly though to get it to work. Check the link below for wiper pics... I can try to get armrest pics too..

2004 C Class Center Armrest

2004 C or CLK has the center arm rest can can be opened from
both DR or PASS side.
If you open from DR side then the hinge is in the Pass side
and if you open from the pass side, the hinge is in the DR side.
See photo attached.

I see a potential retrofit as it's only the top part that changes. Retrofit away my mod maniacs.

Here is more PIX of the arm rest.
I think you can retrofit the 04 upper portion to older models.

I thought that I read on here, prior to the crash, where someone got his 03 lid replace with the 04 lid under warranty by his dealer. But I'm too lazy to .

A brand new center console armrest cost approximately ~240. The armrest comes complete with cover and the box underneath it. I wonder if Steve can get one for us at a lower price.

sorry, to resuscitate an old thread... but wondering if anyone was able to successfully retrofit the '04 upper portion of the arm rest (with dual side openings) on '03 and older arm rest cars ????

is part # 203 818 626 still valid ? What are the codes for different type of leather interiors (ie. charcoal, ash, etc...) ?

Need to add this to my MOD list...

definitely, will be great for those with the UHI installed inside the top arm rest cavity.

Looking closely at Brabus C's posts, he lists part # 203 818 626 on all his posts, so I DON'T think this is the right part # for the arm rest....

Brabus C what is that # for ? and what is the REAL part # for the arm rest ?

anyone know ?

Just occurred to me....
my wife's 2004.5 has that type of arm rest cover. I'll take it apart this afternoon to see if I can find a part #. Maybe, she won't notice if I just swap it out (Death Wish !)

I believe it is a direct swap. I looked into this myself. The new armrest will also accomidate the UHI floor panel really easly. The old armrest will requore some modification. The arm rest is about 160 bucks at the dealer. Specify your interior color code also when ordering.
