X5 E53 Center Armrest & Storage Unit
I need to replace my beige center console armrest with phone tray and storage bin. Please let me know if you can provide any assistance or recommendations. Is this a one piece unit ? If you can provide any direction on installation that would also be appreciated. Thank you~:tsk:

Well you can search here for the parts, identify them, gather the part numbers and then Google for results:

I Googled the beige armrest and one result took me here:

You don't have to get that one, but that's the idea. The storage bin is in this diagram:

As far as installation goes, it's not a one piece item. Whatever your issue may be it would help if you can salvage anything, like hardware. I'm not sure the new items include the hardware or if they are sold separately. You should call around and get that info.
Start with a dealership also. Use that as a baseline and branch out from there as you may not be able to get everything outside the dealer, even though its a seven year old car.
Good luck.

Thank you very much for your assistance particularly with the diagrams. I have a few junk yards to consider here in NJ and also Upstate NY.
