I need to remove the front captains chairs armrests

Does anyone know how to remove the armrests from the front seats. They are leather and the foam in the rests are distorted. The leather has a zipper but the arm rest has to be removed before you can remove the leather cover. Thanks for any help.

Look at the bottom of the seat back. There is probably some sort of closure that you can get into the back and reach a nut that hold on the arm'

If that does not work you can always get the Saws-All out

I'll give that a try. I was able to get under the seat but it looks like a welded rounded-off piece holding the arm rest. I will check to see if I can push in on the stops. Thanks

remove arm rests

Hi Angelman;
To remove my arm rests I had to tip the seat rearward to the max. While pushing the arm rest inward I rotated the arm rest forward about 120 degrees as related to the seat back. It took a lot of wiggling but they come off. Other manufacturers have different ways but it is the same type of method.. I suggest that you do a search on "remove arm rests" or install seat covers. They do come off but not easily for me. Once their off you can see how it works.
Have fun
Milt

Thanks guys, I was able to get them off very easily. The hard foam in the center section of the armrest had become unglued from the 2 outer softer pieces. I replaced the inner section with memory foam that I had left over after cutting to fit the mattress. I also put a half inch thick layer across the whole top for extra softness and comfort. It came out excellent. Make sure you rewrap the foam in light plastic or else youll never slip the leather covers on easily. Also I used a 3M product called M77, its a spray on contact cement for foam. Thanks

In the Motorhome I did it on, a 1986 Champion, it turned out to be pretty simple. I raised the armrest pushed it in held it in and lowered it and the arm rest came off.
