I was told that you cannot remove the arms and replace it with something else, and I was also told that 96+ will not work on my car. Maybe whoever told me was wrong. I ordered part number 25639345. This is what I got: includes the cupholder.
To remove this piece,
remove the two screws on top when you open it
take of trim piece where 9 way power seats are, or cover if you dont have them. One screw under there near the back and up which holds piece on.
Then in the back under the console lid there are 2 nuts that hold the cover to thetrim piece. Those are hard to remove because you dont have much room.
