Do you still have it apart? It would be a good time to pull out the Trunk/Backseat Divider and clean it... and you can pull your rear seat armrest out with only four more bolts to clean in the crevace that is crazy hard to clean.

oOoOo, I didn't see that last pic... the divider was on the interior side of it... you got to clean the armrest in the back seat though, when I got mine apart I found dried coke bits in there.
