Hi.

All 4 of my front arm rests in my Swift Royale '96 Ducato are worn badly and I want to re-cover them but can't see how the "Pad" is removed from the metal support pin (Which bolts to the seat - I've tried un-bolting this and lost a nut inside the seat upholstery that I can't get out so I've got a wonky arm!) or indeed from the plastic lower half.

They are the Generic type of bolt on arm rests seen in many different MH's, with the angle adjuster wheel under the plastic bottom near the front.

Can anyone advise as this sort of wear must be rife and many must have been re-covered.

Many thanks

seat arms

I did recover mine to match some covers we place over the upholstery to prevent soiling and wear. I don't have the M/H here at the moment but from memory I think there are 2 screws on the underside of the arm unscrew and gently prise the arm cushin off.

Regards,

Graham

I'd also like to know as I'd like to add an extra arm to out seats, quite why they thought we'd only need one is beyond me, but that's Fiat for you.

Anyone got some spare arms?

Hi,
I've had to remove the tops of the armrests on my 2000 Peugeot a couple of times, there were no screws, I just prised them apart to get at the innards, they are quite stiff though,
Regards,
Chris

PS to clarify,I prised the TOP fabric covered part off leaving the arm behind.

Fantastic stuff, you're right.

I just pushed a scroggie under the top (Fabric bit) where it joins the lower plastic bit and gently levered it up and it came off.

Kev N Liz (& anyone else wanting to do the same) the top pad is push fitted / located on 6 vertical plastic pins (2 at the front, 2 middle & 2 rear). There are locating holes on the padded bit. Work your way round the gradually widening gap with your scroggie, levering the top upwards.

Hope this helps folks to get on with their jobs :lol:

As a Radio Techie years ago I recalled that the Man Scroggie published the Bible of Wireless/Electronics.

But, In this application, I'm guessing it is NewSpeak for Screwdriver:

As in the story when then the General's car breaks down and the Blonde ATS driver is peering under the bonnet to investigate:

General "Would you like a Screwdriver?"

ATS Blonde "Not yet sir, I'll have to get the engine going first"

With sincere apologies to all Generals, Blondes, ATS Ladies, and Screwdrivers who may have taken offence.
