Has anyone removed the armrest on the Abarth? Seems to be in the way. Any tools needed and when removed is there a hole or what? Will a plug fit in the spot? If someone has done this please post pics.

I did my sport. it has a clip you pull out. unfortunately it left a metal peg sticking out of the seat. Im going to get it grinded off and have a shop sew a fiat patch over the hole in the seat. Im sure the Abarth seat uses the same type of system.

Where is the clip? I cant seem to find it. I purchased a new WOOD console from Italy which I would like to install.
Thanks!

If you push the seat fabric inward around the armrest, you can expose the clip. Or there always a hammer, and whack the armrest off, then you'll see the clip.

Be careful, that metal bar left over after your armrest falls off is a pathway to a skin graft appointment.
