    Honda Armrest Replacement Option

    I am considering getting the Honda armrest replacement and I wondered if anyone here had already gotten it and what impressions they may have. Is it nicely made and how much storage does it add, and is it comfortable and longer than the factory armrest?

    If you do a search you'll find plenty of information, opinions, etc. Personally, I found all the info positive and just ordered mine yesterday. Good luck!

    Just for the record -- I DID that search and saw all the posts about the armrest. I ordered mine from Handaaccessories and I love it...

    This is the armrest Honda SHOULD have put in every Odyssey. But, then, they could not charge extra for another "accessory."

    What is so special about this armrest? Does it still allow access thru the front seats to the rear?

    Its much wider (works much better for my long arms) and it opens and has storage space inside. The angle is also adjustable.

    When in place it does prohibit walk-thru to the rear seats -- but you can easily take it off when you need to go through to the back seats.

    When I looked up the new armrest is shows it is only available for the 2003 model. I have a 2001 and am wondering if this armrest can be fitted to my Odyssey.

    YES!

    It's only listed as an option for '03s because that's when Honda started selling it.

    I've got one on my '01.

    I installed it in my '02 and it is excellent.

    Has anyone put it in between the two middle seats? We never slide these two together, and it's pretty easy to remove prior to walking through.

    One of the best things about it is that it is an easy 5-minute install. Even a clutz like myself could do it.

    Now I have my sights on the foglights. Actually, at one point in my life I installed foglights on my then-new Subaru XT. However, THAT car did not cost me anywhere as much as the Odyssey. I am paranoid about even thinking about installing anything that requires cutting on anything that set me back as much as the Ody.

    What's the worst that could happen?
