Hi Konakalela, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair
Most arm rest have a round trim cover on the side of the seat that's removable. Simple remove that cover and there is a bolt behind it that holds the arm rest remove it counter-clock-wise and pull the arm rest straight outward. For further assistance go to my website. Have an awesome day Konakalela. Auto Repair
depending on the type of arm rest you might have a look on eBay for " wheelchair arm rest" there are several universal types, they are often far cheaper to buy a new pair that to just replace one with original genuine parts.
On most vehicles the arm rest are attached the same way, here is something you can try...Put the armrest in the upright position. Look along the bottom and sides of the armrest where it connects to the body of the seat. There should be small circles like tabs if the armrest is made of plastic, and there should be a seam that you can look through if the arms are made of cloth.
Pop out the tab or peel back the fabric to reveal the holding mechanism. If the chair is screwed in then you'll need a screwdriver, and if there's a nut or a bolt then you're going to need a socket wrench.
Hold the armrest up and make sure it doesn't move. Unscrew or unbolt the arm from the bucket seat. Pull the arm outwards once the hardware is removed.
using a flat blade tool like a small flat blade screwdriver, release retaining clip on arm rest and pull armrest from seat. slip the screwdriver between seat back and armrest and pry up on the retaining clip.
This wheelchair has a limited lifetime warranty. The steel frame was defective and should not have broken under normal use. You should contact the dealer from whom you purchased the chair and have them replace the frame and/or wheelchair free of charge. You can also contact Drive Medical with the model and serial number of the chair for help in resolving your problem. The phone number for Drive Medical is 877-224-0946. Hope this helps.
If you tightened the Arm Angle Adjustment bolt as shown on page 28 of your Owner's Manual (under the arm rest near the pivot point) by using your supplied 1/4" hex wrench, but it does not want to stay in place, the threads on the bolt may have become stripped with age and wear and needs to be replaced. You can also try applying a substance like Lock-Tite to the threads to see if that will keep them in place. If not, the armrest may need to be replaced, approx $118 plus labor to install.
The armrests have covers that can be removed. Locate the zipper on the arm rest. Once you unzip it pull it toward the back of the arm rest and this will expose the one bolt that hold the armrest on. You will need a large torx and rachet to get it off. Once you take out that bolt the armrest will come right off.
The real real answer. If the threaded stud is in the armrest there is a clip at the bottom of it you have to push it up and pull the stud out with vice grips twisting as you pull out. If both the studs are in the chair you have to make sure the clip is pushed up & out of the way then simply line up the arm rest and push it on. It should clip into place. Hope that is clear enough. Also I would put some Lock Tight on the threads. (Blue)
