Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
Cannot get center consloe to lower. Never has worked right for many years. Occasionally it will come down after tryig many times. Always goes up, but have not been able to get it to come down.lower it, and whay might me the problem?
The button that releases the top cover also pulls the pin that holds the cover upright pin may have ncome unhooked from the rod. If so shimming the pin may be the quick fix.

Mine is doing the same thing, what i found out is that if you put one hane on it, on the opposite top rear corner and as you are pulling down also pull towards the other corner, in other words, sitting in the drivers seat you will place your hand on the top of the console between the pass. seat and the console, now put pressure on the con by pulling it toward yourself, now down at the same time.

Hi my name is Allen!
The most likely cause is the lock that holds it in place is sticking, you can try to lube it with a gel lubricant and see if that helps. If this doesn't work unfortunately it will have to be replaced.
For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

I got it unstuck using a narrow strip of metal and the help of an assistant. I removed the screw and the vinyl cover from the pair of black structural metal slats that support the console on the driver side With a penlight look between the slats below the pivot point of the driver side joint for a shiny steel hub that looks like the head of a pawl or a pin. You can see it track toward the rear and halt as you pull the console forward. I stuck the metal strip into the joint and pushed on the pawl while the assistant rocked the console. I think it was pushing it leftward that cleared it. My assistant thinks otherwise...
