I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who contributed to this topic, it realy helped me out a lot. I just got done installing the armrest in my 2009 Civic DX VP Sedan. It barely took me an hour and a half, and the hardest part was putting the pin inside the actual armrest. I highly recommend this for anyone with the DX VP because it feels like a brand new car now that I FINALLY have an armrest. Next up is power locks, painted door handles, and some upgrade speakers! Thanks again everyone.
what if I just buy the armrest? will it fit snug onto the compartment?Thanks everyone for all the input. Ordered from Majestic Honda, $80.52 delivered to California. I finished the install on my son's 2011 DX-VP (Automatic Trans) in less than an hour. The pin would not slip through at first, but tried the other side and it fit nicely. The pictures and knowing what tools were needed, made the install a breeze. The internet is amazing when you have a need or want to solve a problem. Thanks again!

I really don't want to spend $85 and spend 3 hours installing such a silly thing. My old 1999 came with a darn armrest cover!! lol
