Does anyone know the size of the head of the bolts that hold the rear armrests in? I was just at a junkyard and was unable to grab a couple because I expected they would be phillips like most fasteners that size in vehicles this age. WRONG! After crawling around with my head upside down in a dirty junkyard bronco to look in the hole with a flashlight, it's some sort of tiny bolt head in there. I'm not even sure I'll be able to pull a socket back out of the foam after loosening it.

I have the rear armrests in storage and pretty sure I taped the bolt or screws to it. Will check for you tomorrow.....

That would be awesome! I'll try to resist impatiently going to the JY and trying a bunch of stuff because I don't want to wait. :D

I want to say 3/8 off the top of my head. I had to use an extension to get it in and then once I got it removed use the bolt to push it out. There’s not much space for the socket at all.
