I've managed to scratch the leather in a few places on the centre arm rest
is it possible to get it fixed or a new leather bit to replace it ?

Is it leather or vynal,
If it's vynal a heat gun used carefully will remove most, if not all of it,
If you've never used a heat gun, stay away from it, fires cost loads to put right,
If it leather try a trimmer to see if it can be repaired or treated,
Hope this help, feeling your sorry,

I ripped mine too! Ikea trip went wrong. Was thinking of getting it alcantara trimmed with steering wheel at Auto Torque.

Ok,

so I've taken mine out and it looks like it gets decovered when being retrimmed. So, it makes more sense for either one of you, whoever is gonna be quickest!!! to take out your armrest and send it direct to the trimmers to recover.

Once done, I'll send you mine which is perfect and keep your recovered one.

The way it is removed is by lifting up the rear centre cupholder section which just clips in, and undoing the four screws that hold the hinge to the central tunnel. You then send the entire arm rest and hing mechanism to the trimmer.

Who's going to do it?
