Does anyone have a good trick for removing this? I have set it at 45 degrees up, and the arm rest has moved about 5mm off its boss, but is still pretty tight, and no amount of wiggling has budged it yet.
What am i missing?

Pull the plastic hinge cover off, it's just pushed in on a couple of pegs, and you'll see the bolt underneath that holds it on.

Thanks, i've done that bit, bolt is out... Now trying to actually get it off... There seem to be a small percentage of users for whom the arm does not come off at 45 degrees, and i'm looking for the sneaky trick

I know a PO went in before me, so maybe something is mis-assembled but i'm clueless at the mo....

PO hadnt put the roll pin back into the boss far enough, so it was never going to come off without something breaking. Think it's recoverable though

Huh? There wasn't a roll pin in either of the two I took apart. I bought a set of seats matching mine so I could do a mix and match with the best bits (drivers seat base had suffered a bit with a big fat copper sat in it for 8 years) and swapped the armrest over. That was just a case of undoing the bolt and off it came.

Maybe just terminology, theres a big roll pin inserted into the boss at 45deg, which is how the black knob adjusts the height, and how the arm is stopped from falling off, even if the bolt is out
