Arm rest on drivers...

Arm rest on drivers side is splitting at the seam on my 2011 Lincoln MKT. What options would I have for repair? Thanks. Dave Latam

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MKT yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have done nothing so far. I could attemp repair my self or if more practical have it done by someone else. Dave

Hello and welcome to JA.....Basically you have two options...you can go to the dealership and either order it and install it yourself, or have them install it.....or remove the arm rest and bring it to an Auto Upholstery repair facility...they will be able to match up the color and either replace the cover or repair it.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
