You know that awesome arm rest/middle cargo box between the drivers and the passengers seat? Well...mine is stuck in the up position and refuses to go back down with either finesse or brute force. All of my stuff (that used to be in there) is now flying all around the cab. Has anyone encountered this and how did you fix it? Help?

Mine started to do this the other day but it came down for some reason. I don't know if I had to lift up on it but it broke loose like I accidentally hit a lever or something. I will look at it when I go out for a break.

ok here is the trick the push button that opens the armrest also unlocks it when its in the up position so it can be put back down found this out by accident one day i had the same problem put mine up and the da#@ thing wouldnt go back down wresseled with it for several min hit the button and poof it went down (its like spending 20min looking for your keys only to find them in your pocket)

the actual release button is on the left side down by the seatbelt its just a small piece you push on and it releases like a charm

I appreciate the replies. I've tried the shimmy, loosening the bolts, and looked for a release button (I can't find one on mine, and the lid release doesn't do it for mine). I wonder if it's just that mine is a little older ('97) and was before they installed a release button?

That would be awesome man. I'm not sure what I'm missing. I even took the plastic cover off looking for that thing.
