Arm rest removal

I'm looking for suggestions on how to remove the arm rests from the captain chairs. The material has worn through and needs replacing. In order to have this done the complete arm rest needs to be removed. The zipper on the back of the arm rest does not allow removal. Any thoughts?

If they are Flexsteel like mine, You pushed them in and then down. It took a lot of pressure to push them in. I ended up taking the seat off the base so I could lay them on their side so I could get enough pressure to push them in.

You will get better specific answers if you tell us what brand and year you are working with.

My dynasty 2003 you press in on the arm while it is in the down position and then rotate it up and keep pushing in it will pop out near the top travel. To put it in reverse process,

look here or use search function

Yes, that is the unit I have. I'm going to the MH later today and will try these methods.

I have a similar problem. How ever it seems that when manufactured they did not put the slit pin in far not to allow the arm to rotate fully to clear the pin over the slot. So now I am faced with an arm rest I cannot remove. The pin was placed sufficiently tight and in a narrow place that I cannot get it loose with a vice grips.
Any suggestions?

I have included a photo of my removed armrest. As suggested by forum members, it was a simple "push and turn" to remove. As you can see, mine has a solid pin welded or glued into the shaft. Not meant to be removed. I suspect yours is the same only they used a split pin instead. JMHO. Others on this forum may have other advice.
