armrest removal 1954 chrysler windsor convertible

Recommended Posts

i am trying to remove the armrests. the handles are off, door panel pulled away, but the armrests appear to be bolted to the door from behind them where i cannot see what is there or even get a hand in there. the arm rests are covered with material all around, they do not have bolts under them as in my 53 imperial. i do not see how they could have been put together this way, let alone be removed. funny thing is there is duct tape on the paper panel under the door panel. this was not used in 1954, so someone has been in there. may not be relevant to this issue. does someone know the procedure to remove these?   thanks.   capt den

Is there a covering on the bottom of the armrest which could be peeled back? 

I would imagine that in installing the armrests, there would be bolts or nuts accessible from a recess (or recesses) on the bottom ot the armrest, which would then be covered with the leather or vinyl which covers the rest of the armrest.

Join the WPC club.... go through the roster for 1954 Chrysler Imperial or what you need and call the owners.

Easy but might take some time... that's the way it is working on the old cars. I looked through the 1954 Chrysler Shop and parts manual.... nothing on the door panel removal unique to your car.
