So I made the mistake of removing the armrest to wash the covers and doing so I unscrewed the knob and of course couldn't put it back together with the two rattling parts inside. After much frustration and no answers from the samba or internet I went forth and took it apart Shocked

Here are the two parts that will rattle inside (not the butter knife or screw Laughing :

You will need to slice off the top above the wood to access the 4 screws :

Put the spring is this way down in between the middle slot:

Spring and nut put in:

With the rod put back in:

Thats it. You will have to remove the rod knob when you put back on the upholstery so make sure to hold the armrest down as if you were using it in the vanagon so the spring and nut dont come out.

If your one that plans on taking off the cover to wash...DONT! just wash it by hand and you will save yourself.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to blakeck2 for putting up these photos.

I have just bought a replacement armrest for Limey cheap because it had come apart... basically the adjuster had been unscrewed fully and the but had fallen out of its position.

After searching a while, the samba turned up exactly what I needed and with a knitting needle, torch and a lot of patience... it's all back together and working!

Thankyou

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The knob pulls straight off if you ever need to remove it.
