Hi all. I thought I would post a solution to a problem I ran into. When lifting my center console armrest it would make clicking noises. It turned out that the armrest shifted slightly to the driver side of the car on its hinge and was not making good contact with the white gear that is used to keep the armrest opening smoothly. I fixed this by pulling the back of the center console (the rear vent cover) straight back to remove. From there you can access the armrest hinge. I installed a zip tie to the passenger side of the hinge and by doing so this will keep the armrest engaged with the white gear all the time. If you look at the picture I posted you can see the zip tie on the right side of the hinge. You can also see all the slop in the hinge that allows the armrest to shift to the driver side.
