The w124 armrest bracket is almost exactly the same as my 1999. The w124 armrest has a version with a storage compartment that is also really nice. I added it to our 300E a year before we sold that car. The bracket is a little longer and could be adapted pretty easily, especially if you were just adding the driver side. Check on Benzworld and Ebay for more info.

1. Remove two phillips' head screws from bottom of chair-back
2. Remove two 13 mm bolts from just above arm-rest (holding brass spacer in place)
3. Remove arm-rest.
4. Remove round plastic cover in front of big button
5. Remove leather cover, you may have to cut the inside of the leather and/or some stiching, no more than a few mm. The top of the leather cover (really the back "spine") has a plastic piece inside it that lets you remove it and put it back in place again--they most have known breakage would be a problem.
6. Remove hardware, replace broker arm.
7. Replace hardware and follow steps 5-1 backwards.
Good luck! I used fishing line to sew up my cutting, it worked pretty well w/ inside stiches and knots. Pretent you're a plastic surgeon or something, use tiny stiches and don't let them show.

Awesome! I have the same issue on my rig. This is perfect! Thanks for tracking this info down!

Is it possible to add a 1990s 463 arm rest to a 460 Recaro seat?

Also, are there rear seat pedestals to mount the 460 Recaro in the rear bench position?

Is it possible to mount the 1990s 463 armrest on a 460 Recaro seat? They look very similar.

Also, it there some kind of bracket to mount a 460 Recaro in the second row position?

The 463 armrest bolts to a plate that keys into the seat frame in a special way, I’m sure that plate can be modified to fit any seat with clever metal fab.
