@ryzar. Computer says no mate then it don't fit. Trouble with most vehicle 'technicians' is they are mainly just new parts fitters these days & lack the hands on experience of actually having to work on vehicles. There are members of this forum that would run rings around most of them. Good work fella

I believe that 100% everyone I’ve talked to since I’ve had my caddy have no idea except for the people I’ve met on this forum

From which car is the center console box? Is it the armrest included in it?

@Käppyrä

Looks spot on. I’ve got a set on order at the moment. Hoping they don’t take much longer to be made and fitted

Did you fit them yourself or did you have seat surgeons fit them for you?

Hi! As my idea is to use the Caddy as a weekend camper, I've just added a button to open the rear lid from inside: 1 hour work and less than 10 € :)

Here some pictures (they are horribles, sorry...)

Step 1: Connect two wires to the motor (better, to the pin) activated by the handle

Image

Step 2: Pass the wires through the spaces in the body from the botton to top until they are close to the wiper motor

Image

Image

Step 3: Drill an hole in the wiper motor's cover, connect the wires and that's it!

I ordered this armrest from Ebay. It includes only armrest box.

I sent pictures of car seats to Seat Surgeons. I installed the seat covers myself. It was pretty hard but worth it! :)
