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?

EDIT: turns out it's just a LOT of Loctite. Breaker bar helps. But the metal on the bushing on the arm is now worn, and it doesn't appear I can swap left for right. I think it's a stock Ford swivel seat, or at least a Ford on an aftermarket swivel. Anyone every replace one?

Re: Driver's seat armrest

Mine loosened (2006) and has the same tork head.. If I remember correctly there is a nut on the back of the metal arm bracket. Remove cover, part foam to expose it. Fixed mine.
