Hello guys, as the tittle stated, my armrest bubbled up and now its tearing up.. I don't think im under warranty so I was wondering if any of you guys knows where I can purchase a new one other then a Honda Stealership? Thanks in advance
BTW I did a search on this topic and all I see are people getting replacement from the dealership because they're still under warranty.
Ebay: Replacement cover under $30.00..easy to remove from car..easier to remove the vinyl cover...I had a old hot rodder replace mine..tough to stretch and staple..check with your local trim shop...the cover is real leather and comes in two colors black and beige.

Disgusted, went to ebay search: 2009 Honda Accord Armrest Cover
Purchased under $25.00 and this is a LEATHER replacement
Easy to remove old factory vinyl cover..short staples
Friend in a hot rod stretched and stapled ebay cover on no charge to me
You will more than likely have to take cover to a trim shop and pay the labor
But I can assure you this is a better than factory replacement part from ebay..
Nice job Black Bandit what kind of material did you use?
I have this same issue and I don't know how to fix it.
As you can see, there is now a bubble forming on the other side too.
