I’ve just finished the steps in the installation of the first shown above. Aside being a very cramped (which was not helped by our current spell; I had to sit in the hot tub for a half hour I could fully unbend my it has its problems, as outlined below.

and foremost, this is not a perfect fit for a iQ . As shown above, the plastics with this armrest the armrest/cup holder assembly, as as a second shroud-like piece is fitted below. The lower is made to fit over a console/emergency housing on some Toyota (and not one that I’ve owned). You can just see the cutout for the brake housing in the photograph

Both portions are mounted on a gauge sheet metal which is in turn screwed to a pair of heavy-gauge metal these being mounted the inner seat rail on side of the center location.

All the install uses four machine screws and four machine screws. Nothing and nothing that screws plastic.

The instructions that I with this arm rest in Japanese, but they are accompanied by the pictographic description of the process, so if you ever assembled a Japanese model, or a piece of Ikea you will do just fine. The included are marked with L and R, and (on the one) an indication as to which end forward.

To mount the armrest, you first unbolt the inner rails from the floorpan. I an 8 mm socket, but I get the feeling that the are really not 8 mm bolts. Nonetheless, the worked.

Once the inner are freed from the floor I tipped each seat up and the brackets beneath each They hook over the (beneath the seat) edge of the and bed down against the plastic at the rear end of the rails lightly them with a hammer to them along. Once are in place, you can rebolt the seat into place, carefully them with the socket as you do so.

Once the brackets are under the the next step is to place the bracket over the holes on one of the rail brackets, and lightly it in place. Because there is spring in this bracket, you to first secure one side of the bracket before you flex the until it is over the two bolt on the other bracket, and then lightly bolt it into with the remaining bolts.

bolts/machine screws used by for this part are made of soft metal. I first to use my electric screwdriver with and ended up stripping out one of the heads. it safe and drive all screws an old fashioned, manual screwdriver.)

Once the mounting bracket is in carefully snug down all of the screws with a manual so that the bracket is held in place. That completes the portion of this install. If you are in the cold like I was today, you need to warm up and unbend knees for a while.

The next is one that I haven’t taken The plastic bridge piece the arm rest box looks a bit strange if as received, since the lower is fitted to the non-existent emergency console that is not present in our What I plan to do is to trim the of the piece so that the scalloped is removed and a smooth curve the arm rest box is the result, covering the edge of the mounting bracket but permitting access to the space the mounting bracket. For the time I’m just going to that piece entirely.

Regardless of what you do, I would recommend that black on automotive door edge be applied to the front and back edges of the mounting bracket. The metal used here is sharp edged, and could cut and arms and snag cloth might rub up against it.

With the in place, it’s now time to the arm rest box. Set atop the it is held in place by the four screws included in the package. one at a time into a screw and drive them home, carefully using a manual driver to do so to avoid stripping out the heads. Finally, drop the bottom of the arm rest box the piece of automotive carpet to cover the holes.

A couple of notes on the installation.

• First, this is a Japanese arm rest, that is to say it is best fit for shorter people, like the arm rests built the doors. Nonetheless, it at least a point that you can use, the big hole that was there

• Second, the cup holder provided at the of the arm rest box is only completely when the rear seats are in the up You can put it down when the seats are up, and carefully compact the corners of the halves so as to fit beneath it, but take not to tear up either the seat or the arm when you put the seats back in the position.

That said, it add a center console, where existed before. It looks OEM equipment, and complements the Scion iQ And, the additional cup holder and space are a welcomed addition as It’s a shame that is not a similar arm rest/cup holder/ console that is a true, for the iQ solution that would utilize the space between the set a greater sized enclosure, but you get you can get.

When I figure out how to load and when I tear it down to install the trimmed plastic I’ll upload some
