    I went to adjust myself in my seat last night. When it was about 17 degrees out and i put my left elbow through the plastic on the arm rest on the door. The fabric is still intact but the plastic underneath is split and keeps shifting everytime i touch it. Anyone got any ideas how to fix it.. maybe epoxy a piece of wood onto the bottom of it after taking the door panel off?

    I like the epoxy idea. It is easy to do and won't cause any further damage. I might do fiberglass instead of wood though.

    I had the same thing happen on my '05. Warranty replaced it back then. You may give it a shot.

    My armrest was broken when I took delivery (used with 29,000 mi). Discovered this after I got it home. Went back to pick up owners manual and told my salesman. He told me to bring it back when I got back from vacation. On return I was told it was an appearance item and they would not cover it. Service dept. said they would replace it for cost. I didn't even hang around to find out what that would be.
    I was also wondering if this would be an easy fix. is the door panel difficult to remove?

    hmm "appearance items" should be covered under the 3 year, 36k bumper to bumper warranty...

    I just broke it.... I was getting my wallet out at the drive up (which I don't get because usually I eat inside the restaurant). I remember exactly what I did. The tip of my elbow was on the armrest I leaned up...snap! I'm 6'1" and weigh 180, and you would think the dumb armrest would support me. :mad:

    It's gotta be something with us guys that weigh 180 and are 6'1" haha. I still haven't gotten around to trying to fix mine yet.

    I just fixed it. I took fiberglass cloth and got some fiberglass resin. I will post what I did. I even took pics. It was dry in two hours and now I could practically stand on it (if I wanted to)!! :D Very strong!

    I did the same thing, shifting my weight around (all 170 lbs) and put my (boney) elbow thru my armrest. Dealer hung an entire new door panel under warranty
