Driver's seat arm rests
« on: June 12, 2013, 08:35:53 am »
Anybody get the angle and height fixed on their arm rests?  they are way to high for both of us.  Trying to think of a remedy.  Our last rig had adjustments that were nice but just a permanent lowering would be perfect.

I don't believe they are adjustable.  I think you can remove them by pushing in hard at the pivot point while turning past the stop in the "UP" position.  I would remove one and see if it can be adjusted once taken off.  Maybe you can adjust the angle, but surely not the height.

A good seat cushion would be the next consideration.  Just make sure you can still reach the pedals. :)

If all is hopeless, you might be able to purchase off-set or adjustable armrests from the OEM supplier.  For our 2007 it was http://www.paulsseating.com/  Do you have the original seat tags?  PC-USA can help with your seat supplier.  Those armrests are not expensive.  They cost me $20 a piece (or was it for the pair?) when I ordered my 3rd captain seat by the entry door.  Keep in-mind that offset armrests would stick out forward when folded upward.

Barb:

I agree that the arms rests need to be adjustable; not sure there is much that can be done with the set up we all currently have...Paul's Seating (supplier of seats to PC) needs to offer such a feature.   Ron

Like a said, Pauls Seating might offer adjustable ones that fit the same socket.
