Who in their right mind would take out the arm rest? So I'm with Brett on that one. Look in between your seat. There will be a little button on top of the armrest. you have to press it in, then push it forward.

Sometimes I put it all the way down and pretend I am a Jet not a Jetta, but usually I put it between the seats. Also have 3 English - Japanese Language Tapes in there. LOL Thought I'd throw it in there.

I find that REALLY strange that yours doesn't have any armrest at all... You sure it's not just up between the seats? I know that seems like stating the obvioius...but I don't know...

If I had a car like that, Boosted... I would drive with my right hand on the steering wheel, the other elbow out the window, too.

I like my armrest. Specially when I throw my elbow over it when downshifting for traction while taking ramps a little too fast!

yea, when I looked at Golf GL's before convincing the wife on the GTI they didn't have armrests. Suck-o. Once you figure out the negative angle position, the armrest is really pretty comfy, and doesn't get in the way.

yeah i too just bought a 2000 Jetta GL and to my surprise just realized that there is NO armrest! Would it be possible to order this part from VW or do you know of any other places that would sell one? :?

haha, looks like you're gonna need to buy an armrest for your jetta now. i'm sure you could pick one up fairly cheap at a yard or on 'tex.

Check in OUR trading post. One of those posts selling alot of stuff had an arm rest in it. I will look and post the link up in a sec.

My bad, that was the center console, not the armrest.

Check www.vwvortex.com and www.parts4vws.com
