    Stuck Armrest

    Hello,

    Just got my S3 a few weeks back and of course am very pleased with it. Problem is after having it for about two days I whacked my elbow on the centre armrest and it will no longer release from the upright position. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Cheers.

    Pust the arm rest toward the rear of the car until you feel resistance, to release pressure from the locking mechanism and then press the release lever. That should sort out your problem

    Yep, tried the button and have pushed it back hard at the same time too. Seems like the button linkages to the ratchet are broken as there is no feeling the switch does anything. Guess their are two sides from the switch as the passenger side ratchet will release, its the drivers side that stops the rest from coming down.
