Villa Captains chair arm rest removal

I have a 2012 American Revolution which has Villa captains chairs. I had a issue with the ultra leather on the seat cushion and one arm rest on the co pilots chair. Long story but dealer was taking too long so I now have the covers and have done seats like these before on our 08 Discovery when the seats flaked bad, but this arm rest is Villa and the Discovery was Flexsteel. There is a small zipper at the back of the arm rest, not sure if this one pushes in and back, or do I remove the arm but unbolting something in the zipper area?

Usually you unzip and peel the cover back far enough to get to the pivot bolt under the cover. Once the bolt is out, you can remove the armrest and get the cover off the rest of the way.

X-2 on this method, our coach is a 2012, Villa chair. If in doubt google up, Villa RV furniture International. The contact is Mr. Robert Long, your chair if less than two years of age and if you are the original owner, is under warranty! FWIW.

Put it in up position .Push in hard from the side then turn it to the back and pull it out.

Thanks, they replaced the covers on warranty, I decided to save a shop trip and do it myself. I have the "hog clips" and have done one before. I have heard of the push and turn technique, but this looked different, I will peel the cover back and see if I can get at the bolt.
Now I have a issue with the levelers, keypad works and shows no errors, but there seems to be no comunication with the jacks themselves, there must be a breaker or a fuse, just can't seem to find it.

Good thing I emailed Villa, a guy just called me from there after sending him an email and said there is a plastic C-clip that must be removed after opening the zipper and exposing the arm....for anyone attempting the bolt or push and pull technique.

The "push & turn" method is for Flexsteel arm rests rather than Villa.

My American Eagle is Villa and they are removed with the push pull method. Apparently they have changed or use different configurations. Hopefully this discussion helps someone. Going to the source ( in this case Villa) usually works best. But we always need the info after 5 on friday.
