SOLD: On offer is an all-metal (i.e., no plastic parts that support the device) arm rest suitable for the smart Passion
. (It may work with a Cabrio
, but I have not fitted it in that type of vehicle.
Arm Rest Down
The arm rest is constructed of two metal pieces, the mounting bracket with pivot point, and the arm rest proper, which has a cushioned upper surface. They are bolted together, and can pivot at a point sufficient to "store" the arm behind the two seats if desired.
Note the heavy welded reenforcement beam located beneath the arm rest platform. It is constructed out of circa 1/8" thick steel plate, and is very rigid.
The arm rest is attached to the bracket on the rear of the driver's seat, using the two bolts and nuts that will be supplied with the unit. The installation process is very simple, and anyone who can wield a Crescent wrench can install it.
I had the cushion portion reworked from the cheesy plastic leather that it came with. The current covering is color matched to harmonize with the smart interior; the rework was professionally done by the guy who does my upholstery for home and auto.
Arm Rest Up
The two photos show the rest in the down and up position. When in the up position, it is clear of the passenger compartment; when down, it can be used by both the driver and the passenger; the offset in the smart's seating plan allows both to use it without interfering with the other.
There is no storage compartment in the arm rest.
