Could you explain what you did? You unscrewed your lid and had someone staple and glue the new piece to the eBay item to the piece you unscrewed? And then you scewed the glued piece back to where it was?
The ebay piece is literally just a leather cover sized perfectly to go over the existing lid, which is confusing from their pics.
I removed the six screws and then popped the rubber pad off of the lid plate assembly by pulling up from the back until it released...only a little careful force is needed. The new leather cover then stretches over the rubber lid. My guy said gluing all in the middle would make it look weird, so he just stretched the edges and heated the middle. You then pull the edges tight and staple the leather to the inner most part of the rubber on the underside of the armrest (see the uninstalled pic). Then you just razor off the excess leather along the staple line. Snapping it back into the plate is a little harder now because there's a few mils of leather in the way, but you can use the screws to set it in the right spot and then go slowly squeezing around the edge. I hope that helps
