Golf MK 7 Armrest

Post by Rankbajin »

Is the Golf MK 7 armrest a straight fit onto a 2016 Caddy?

TIA

No, it’s not. For something that is a straight fit, you’ll need either a caddy life or a Touran armrest.

Excuse my ignorance, what should a noob look for when buying a Touran arm rest for a mk4 2016 Caddy, is there a specific model or year the armrest should come from?

Not sure if what you are after, but in my searches for the same upgrade for mine, I came across this; https://www.armster.co.uk/shop/vw-caddy ... t-armster/

I wouldn't really recommend the armster version. The actual armrest is a nice bit of kit but the bracket is horrible and flimsy and drives you insane with the constant creaking

@Benson007

Any Touran armrest from 2003-2015 will fit mate. There’s 2 types, one with a fixed armrest and one with a ratchet that also moves in and out. That’s the preferred one to get IMO.

You will also need the support bracket that goes underneath. It sits around the gearstick/handbrake area.

I think there is a guide for fitting one in the how to section.

If you want it to match your existing dash i think only a mk4 caddy life has the right colour

If there’s a colour difference between the Touran and caddy dash, I can’t see it. Mines a 2011 model year.

I bought all the bits new from TPS; came to around £400 iirc. Couldnt find titan black used & none of the breakers with mk4 listed responded so bit the bullet. Only part I bought used was the actual arm rest cover itself as new leather ones are mad money

Thanks for the replies and especially the info regarding colour. I'll try and source a Titan black one if not bite the bullet for new. :D
