Hey all. I’m new here. I’m having an issue with my armrest and I’m hoping that you all might have an answer. I have a 2012 VW Passat 2.0 TDI. My armrest latch is broken and the local VW dealership said that I would need to replace the entire center console. Is it possible to just replace the armrest itself? If so, how? I can’t find any info on it.

Welcome to TDIClub!
Firstly, stay away from VW dealerships. Unless you need a replacement battery. That's about all they are good for.
And don't let them install it. Walk out with it and install it yourself.
My advice is to see if you can find the broken part on ebay.
IF the latches are the same as the A4 VW's (longshot) they can be found here:

On the MKIV, its just in the way, try hanging a quick shift into 4th and you bang your elbow on it. "Working good as new" = crap.
