    Removing arm rests?

    Is it simple to remove the arm rests in the 500e? Even folded up, I find them annoying and in the way.

    This thread (other Fiat website) said there were 2 types of posts for the arm rests. The later type (as in the post above) and some with a shaft sticking out. On comment #23, the owner 3D printed caps.

    If you find caps, please let us know. I want to yank my rests, also.

    Here are a couple of ideas we've had posted on this forum and taken from the threads (there were 13 threads on the armrest and there are also info on how to remove the post that sticks out) I posted. No need to go to other places Especially as they do not allow reciprocating links to our forum.

    The one below looks great.

    A couple of other ideas:

You had to cut the nub down that was left and find a way to attach it. I used high temp hot glue on mine and it hasnt moved since the day I installed it. Im sure one of the other threaded style plugs would work similar.

    A nice alternative is the Wood Company center console.
    I think there was a guy printing something here, but I can't search right now as I'm on the road, I like the cap above as it looks simple and is already made.

    Cars that have a nub sticking out can maybe use a vacuum cap or bypass cap for a water pump:
