Driver's seat armrest

I've got seats of unknown origin, except SMB installed them in 2001 with my van. They have swiveling armrests, attached with a Torx headed bolt. My armrest is loose, but I cannot get that bolt to move, and before I take a BFH to it I'd like to know that it IS designed to come off.

Anyone have a similar seat?

It's probably held in with loctite. Use a long ratchet and it'll break loose.

Re: Driver's seat armrest

Thanks; it was the loctite. The bushing within the armrest is worn, so I'm having trouble getting it to seat without the wobble, but without bind so it will rotate. Probably gonna have to fabricate some kind of thin washer.
