The arm is held on by a c-clip on the steel post that serves as the hinge and mounting point to the side of the seat. Simply stated, you pop that clip off and pull the armrest out, then slide the new one in and replace the clip. This sounds much easier than it is. In order to get to the c-clip you have to partially remove the seat cover. Reach up under the back of the seat and disconnect the plastic clip that holds the seat cover together at the bottom. Then you have to peel back the cover (mine's leather - a real challenge) until you can jam your hand up far enough to find the c-clip. Don't be afraid to really yank on the leather or's tough. An upholsterer could probably do this in 15 minutes. It took me an hour and I was hot and tired when it was done. Good luck!
