Default Armrest Adjustment

Has anyone adjusted the front captains chair arm rest up to level it? I have one armrest that is leaning downward. I have a 2006 Chevy 190 Versatile with the Roadtrek captains chairs. Thanks in advance.

Iíve noticed on my 2014 RT190P that the inboard armrests are very solid and the outboard are somewhat flimsy and sag. I did a little checking by pulling back the covers, and the inboard ones appear to be factory armrests from Chevy, while the outboard ones were added by Roadtrek. I didnít discover any obvious way to adjust or snug up the outboard ones, so Iíll be following this thread so see what others have found.

This post: https://www.classbforum.com/forums/f....html#post5555 probably won't help but still worth trying. If the armrest can be taken off as I described or by a similar method then you might have a better chance figuring out how to adjust it.

Mine is the drivers inboard. The others are good.

Have you unzipped the cover to look underneath? I think you’ll find a stock Chevy armrest, but I can’t remember if there’s an easy-to-access bolt. If so the usual procedure is loosen, adjust, retighten. My issues were with the outboard so I didn’t pay that much attention, but that’s how they worked on a previous minivan we owned.

there is single screw to remove armrest.


there is a toothed spindle - on my 05 chassis chev it was indexed and armrest could only go back on in one position.


removing the index with a dremel could possibly allow the armrest to be rotated back or forward a tooth


it could be that the real fix is to remove the seat covering and see what is happening internally either wear or a loose positioning screw


I had mine off to refoam my seats- and didn't take time, or need to, look at this internal assembly


getting inside the seats is pretty easy - you tube


if doing this maybe a good time to clean out old lube & relube the seat swivel

My 78 Chevy G20 Nomad van with the factory captains seat had an adjustment screw and stop under the armrest. Easy adjustment. These seats are not like that that I can see.
