Default Center Armrest Leather Issue

Remove this ad
My 2009 Genesis has 33,000 miles and I've always taken excellent care of the interior. The only part of the car that has started to show serious ware is the center armrest. The leather has lost color and is significantly worn down. Has anyone ever replaced the center armrest or knows if I can order the part?
Thanks

Of course Hyundai can supply the part. You should also check with a local auto upholsterer/restoration shop. They may do it for less $.

It seems like it shouldn't be too hard to get someone to re-dye or wrap it for you. Some up here posted a pic where they wrapped their own armrest.
