All, I have searched through the forums trying to find how to fix the lid on my 2004 Edge armrest. The lid opens and closes ok, its the top that is all cracked. Material is in good condition. It seems from old posts this was a common issue but the posts are so old the pictures are no longer visible to validate against.
Below is a picture of a car with the same interior and armrest as mine.
I only had the car one day and this is the only issue I have found.
