For anyone who keeps a dog on the back seat, even with a ‘hammock’ like seat cover (like me).
Keep an eye on the retracted arm rests which pop up quite high...
What do you reckon, £200? More??

That looks like the usual shoddy VW build quality to me.

Go in to the dealers, front it out, tell them it was delivered like that and it’s unacceptable. Give them 2 minutes to agree a replacement otherwise you’re going to the biggest specialist EV website to out them.

Oh, hang on...

We still love them don’t we, our furry friends. 🙂

I think the cost will be somewhere between an annual booster and neutering?

Did you buy the vehicle or is it leased?

Is he in the habit of chewing things, or did he find the armrest had an irresistible smell/taste?

Or was it a nervous reaction to your driving? ;)

Get someone to knock-up a nicely sewn black leather cone-shaped bit to fit over the end. Then dose it in that anti-nail-biting stuff that tastes foul (stopped me biting mine, anyway!) before glueing it on.

How do you not notice the dog chewing on parts of the cars interior?
The armrest can't ever be more than 6 inches from you, surely you'd hear some noise, no?
Obviously, the answer is to get one of those extending dog leads, fix it to the towing hoop and make the dog run everywhere after the car.
Won't be more than a couple of weeks before either the dog is too knackered to run after the car and will lie comatose on the back seat dreaming of marrowbones.

Nice idea. But I’m thinking dog on the roof with 4 bog plungers and a flying helmet.

Mitt Romney tried something similar... Mitt Romney dog incident

I wonder if VW could supply just an armrest? Or put up with it until someone writes an ID.3 off and get it off a scrappy?
And Mitt Romney is supposed to be one of the more normal ones...
I’ll give the dealer a ring later. Wonder if they both could just be removed neatly. Not over fussed having them.

If there is no guarantee that the dog won't just chew them again, removing them might be a better option.

I've only ever used them once or twice. They don't feel that comfortable to me.
