Armrest Storage Mod

I hated how my armrest couldn't actually be used to store anything, due to the useless phone cradle. So I decided to hack it up and this is how it turned out.

For those not brave enough to cut things, there's an OE version without the snap-in adapter available, too.

Nope. Have one in my car. It is a factory accessory, part of the "apps" package.

Looks great! I store a small notepad and pen in there at the moment. Wish you showed how to remove the armrest.
