Try to separate the arrowheads from the rest of the console without breaking them or the frame holding them. If i remember correct mine just did not want to come out when pulling the armrest out but came out when I pushed them out from the bottom of the console (after they broke)

In any case I wouldnt care much about the arrowheads as much as I would about the frame holding them down, it will take a little bit of patience and firm, but not hulk-like, pulling.

Good luck, let me know how it goes.

You risk breaking the main center console piece

There's really nothing we can say, only you can climb into your car and try removing it, just go on feel if you start feeling like it is going to snap **** up, then stop and start stripping the main console out instead

Default Easier way!

Looked up this DIY today and saw all pain in the a** work needed to be done. Found an easier way around this so you don't have to take out everything unless you want to remove the whole arm rest compartment then don't pay any attention to this. If you are just replacing the arm rest, this is for you!







Worn, ugly looking arm rest I finally got tired of looking at.





Here you can see the little screws that need to be removed. Remove all 9 of them and that cover should come off very easily.






All 9 are off. You may have to push to top button to release it.





The unscrew these 4 screws.





Put it all back together the way you took it a part and BOOM! Good as new!

Now like I said before this is ONLY for the armrest piece not the complete set up.

Smile 1999 lexus

tital surge flooded my sc400. this thread told me to look under the tiny rug in the center console box. Found 3 screws and now the rug is out and drying in the sun.

Recommendations for spraying the connectors under the seats? All 3 motors still function
