At the risk of being obvious--lift the arm to the vertical/fully-back position. Then move the arm toward horizantal while using the small lever inbedded in the end of the arm for downward adjustment. If this doesnt work you may have a problem with the internal arm mechanism.

I have the same problem with my driver's seat and the old seats don't have the adjustment Old Scout mentioned. I just live with it.

On my old coach Flex Steel chairs you would lift the arm straight up push in and reset arm at position you wanted it.
You could give Flex-Steel a call for more info if it doesn't work for you.
Brad & Hall also sells the adjustable arm maybe you can update your arms.

If you slide your hand along the inside of the arm you will feel the head of 2 bolts. I discovered mine were loose causing the arm to droop. You can slide a wrench in and tighten these and that should fix the problem.
