So far I really like it, but the garage I ordered it from has installed the arm rest incorrectly from what I can see. Check these photos.

I know they move the buttons for the rear windows, but the console should be sitting in that groove like this

as it is, it is very hard to access the buttons, not an immediate concern but very annoying none the less.

That looks a completely different shape to the one in the instructions! Have they fitted one off a different model by mistake?

The instruction photo is correct but armrest seems to be a different shape. The one on the instructions is the correct one, but the one they've fitted is wider as it overhangs the existing fixture whereas it should be narrower and fit on top

oh yeah i see what you mean, never noticed the overhang

That arm rest looks to be an after matket 3rd party manfuctured one. Probably the factory one was out of stock so they cheated

I thought that too, today they said there was a problem with Dacia changing the order numbers or something and it has happened to a few people.

If i search duster armrest in google, its this armrest that comes up.

They said they will sort it :)

Sadly there's not much you can do :( as you ordered a armrest and that's what you got. It could be you have a new type as part of their on going improvements (aka cost cutting)

Looking at the pics, I'd say 4x self tappers have been screwed into the standard console, looks bloody awful and will no doubt reduce the residual value as no-one will believe that was dealer fitted. You need the correct kit and I expect a new centre console too.

Looks like a cowboy job... don't accept that. Make sure they fit the proper one as pictured and keep us updated.

They said they will replace it with the correct one, I have just sent an e-mail saying I thinkj the centre console should be replaced due to the fact there will be holes in it

Update: The correct armrest has now been installed but they said I willl need to go back in a few days to get a new center console as the other one has holes in it from where the wrong armrest was screwed in :)
