There are a few scratches here and there but nothing major and a farily easy fix. The driveside window goes off track. I was told theres a white piece of plastic that needs to be replaced. A $3 piece. I am not sure if this true or not. Also, the arm rest on the driverside is lose it just hangs done. Is this an easy fix?
These are what you need as far as the window sliders:

Nice thread here about the replacement procedure:

To fix the armrest, there is a dowel that you must get to from the inside of the seat. It can be accessed through the back of the seat by removing the two screws on either side(they may have screwcovers on them).

The dowel is #5 in the pic below, it holds the armrest on:

you can use a center punch to remove the dowel.

OOOOH, this should help:

THen when you have it off you can either fix it or find a junkyard part.
