Its a tiny shop near Kuallappa circle in Kammanahalli. This guy makes an armrest which is attached to the sides of the front seats, not the ones that are fixed in between the front seats behind the brake lever. Its very similar to the arm rests you find on the push-back seats in buses.

It is just a piece of wood covered with foam and rexine/fabric and is screwed onto the sides of each seat. It can be swivelled vertically.

He quoted Rs. 1200 for one armrest. Not the type I expected, so i didnt get it fixed.

Hi

The shop looked too small and i didnt feel confident to go on with the work at this shop. Between he has shown me Volvo buses handrest and said he will fix it so i dropped the idea.

Finally, I have fixed the front arm rest for my Esteem

I found this guy, Imran, who offered to fix it for me but he told me that he has to do some alterations to the coin holder behind the hand brake. Took him about 45 minutes to do a little bit of cutting and filing of the coin holder and then he quickly used some black screws to secure the arm rest.

Neat job done, no rattling or shaking of the arm rest. Its very securely fixed and he did a good job.

and no, it does not interfere with gear shifting or using the handbrake.

It cost me Rs. 1800/- including fixing.

Contact Imran at: 98458 69801

Prabhu Reddy Bldg, 100 ft road, 10th main, Annareddy Layout, Dodda Banaswadi, Bangalore.
Ph: 080 4174 1900

This is on the road that goes from the Banaswadi main road to the new underpass at Horamavu Junction on the outer ring road.

So all ye esteemers, go and get one fixed. It is utter bliss on long drives.





and this is my car:

I am not really sure how it can be fixed in your Zen if there is no cup holder. This arm rest has a stub kind of thing which fits into the cup holder and then screws hold it in place there. Fixing it directly to the floor may not be a good idea.

Anyways, this guy Imran is quite resourceful and he'll surely find a way to get a clamp fixed to the floor and then fix the arm rest onto the clamps. He may charge you a bit more for the clamps and fixing maybe.

Best of luck and let us know if you get it fixed.
