I have a 04 Forester X with stock armrest (which you can't rest on :cool: )

I would like to get an XS (tall armrest) or something else.

Will a 07 forester sliding armrest fit in 2004 X ? (Armrest with console and cup holders going up to the ashtray)

I have a 2010 Foz with the sliding arm rest. It is not quite high enough and slides backwards all the time. I think the arm rest extention sold for the 2008-2009 would be better (highter) I don't know if it will fit in your Foz.

I made my own arm rests out of a stadium cushions and they work fairly well. I really miss having real arm rests!

I would like to know too. I was just talking to Subtle Solutions and SUB4U about this yesterday. I wanted to get rid of my tall 05 XS armrest actually.. lol Want something that moves forward too.

The 06-07 console looks identical to the 03-05 but no one can tell me for sure if it fits. I wish I could just get the armrest , but it wont fit to 04 console.

Nope... won't fit. The 06-08 center console has different mounting points for the armrest extension than the 03-05 ones. You'll need to replace the entire console as well from the cupholders back.

I went to the dealer and checked a 06 Forester with sliding armrest.
The 03-05 armrest mounts with 2 screws on top of the console.
The 06-08 has a metal extension which mounts to the bottom of console center compartment.

I guess it's possible to fit it in 04 ?
