Hey all!
I'm just letting you all know that I spent a whole weekend to remove that guide post for the captains chair arm rest. Unfortnuately I don't have a guide on how to cleanly remove it or even make it look good. It's more about just making it work for me. But there are pictures to show my level of stubbornness.

Backstory:
So I have a 2016 Hatchback SE(not the sport) and they came with captains chairs. A.k.a. a flip down little arm that only works with the center console that has no storage cubby or normal armrest.

So I took that out and put in the one with the storage cubby, the one normally found in the non hatchback. The problem is that that little knob rubs/scratches up my storage cubby. After a week of dealing with this, I just took a hand file to it and worked on it for 2 days. For the record, this is in a very hard to reach spot and definitely works some muscles I'm not used to.

Point is, it's very easy to do and it means I can slide my seat forward and backward and it feels great. Here are some related links to the pictures since I can't seem to attach. Just add https://

I’m so glad you posted this as i am adding this and always wanted to see the metal knob i would have to contend with... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/333257540218
That's actually a nice arm rest and I've been eyeing it for some now. ??
I just haven't told myself to buy it yet for some reason.

If you do purchase this let us know how you like it and give us a review.
That's what I may need to get me to purchase this. ?

If it were me, I'd buy a small 6x8" piece of "flashing" from the hardware store. It's in the roofing department. Costs about $1 for a sheet. It's thin, galvanized metal used to transition between asphalt/tar shingles to chimneys. Drill a hole in it the same diameter as that post. Tape the sheet metal over the seat fabric with the post protruding through. Lay some plastic drop-cloth underneath. Use a hacksaw, then a file/sandpaper to smooth it.

It should be easy to do without damage to the fabric. That flat steel surface would act as a guide for a straight cut.
