    I pushed the armrest back too far and now its gone all floppy!
    Any idea how to take it apart to see whats gone wrong?
    Did search but found nothing.
    Anyone got a workshop diagram?
    Thanks if u can help

    Mine has some allens screws holding it to the seat. I had to tighten them up regularly till I used a bit of grunt to tighten them with a socket set, been alright since.

    The silver pin across the armrest in photo 2 was bent and the retaining plastic a bit broken. (in fact so bent it fell out when i took the top off)
    fix was to remove pin and straighten - then reinsert.
    all working again.
    moral - dont push the arm rest too far back
    These are the photos i have uploaded to the site.
    u dont need to take the arm off to get at the workings but if you need to get the silver pin out you will have to.
    4 star screws underneath to get the top cover off.
