Hi,
My wife leant heavily on one of the armrests causing it to drop. If you prise the fabric covered top off you can see what has gone wrong, I took the top off the adjacent arm so I could compare them,

Thanks for your advice. I will have a look at that to see if there is some way of tightening the arm.

If it has broken inside you can get a plate, from eBay about £3 , I would take the arm off first before taking fabric off, jmho, as I have had armrests to bits, on mine that was the easier way.

Good luck, hope you get it sorted.

Thanks to Daisy Mae for advice,how did you find the plate you mentioned? I have also had advice from Autosleeper Services,to remove plastic disc from armrest and tighten thro, opening with a suitable allan key,which I will look at ASAP.

Hi Mike,

 That is a good way to try first, tighten with allan key, you will need quite a long one, just in case you need it I will try to find you a link to an armrest plate.
