^ I would try this first but it also could be broken, I have seen some new OEM replacements on ebay recently for around $ 100.00.

Damn you PhotoSuckIt!!! Damn you to HELL!!! :banghead

@miesk5 - I don't suppose you've found any better diagrams on installing seat arms over the past 6+ years, have ya bud?
I picked up some arms off eBay to remove my "jump-seat" and get back to OEM with armrest and center console.
Thing is... I've never removed or installed a set or even messed with a seat from anything '92+.
I'm sure I can figure out the straight mounting but I have no idea what to do with that cable.
A proper picture or a diagram would be golden. :thumbup

searched, found, read a few. didn't find what I need. Lots of good repair info to be found but most assume you took it off, you'll know how to put it back on. I did find this diagram from a banned members supermotors collection... but I'm still a bit befuddled.

I just had mine off to recover them. I had to unzip and pull the cover up. Remove the torque head bolt. The driver side also has a cable feed down to the bottom corner of the seat. There is a small piece of metal with a little Allen key bolt between the armrest and the seat as well. I think it?s only function was to act as a bushing and to set the height of the arm.

To add to this the bushing was sloppy on mine so it would move enough that it would miss the allen screw stop and fall down. So what I did was put a nut on the end of allen screw stop to make it wider and put lock tight on the nut to lock it

Yo @BikerPepe`

I found some You Tubes by gOOgling; ford bronco arm rest video
My comcast freezes of course becaue it's cloudy today.

I believe this one shows how the cable can be placed back in position;

The other videos won't help you much.

Will look through my old site and then go through the posts I made in other sites to see if anyone added to the threads with more info.

EDIT!
I can't get the video to load here, my tablet freezes.

Thanks for the assist bud. Sorry that your connection is crapping out.
I'm seeing the vid but it's not playing (error). can you get me the name and I'll look it up?

ok... went to YouTube and searched that phrase. Got this vid:

Unfortunately... that one isn't telling me what I'm most curious about. I got a complete armrest, with the cable still connected.

Like so many other vids and postings I've found, most are centered around "repairing" many of the broken ones.
Even Steve83's supermotors (where I got the diagram above) doesn't show me enough.

My ignorance is based on how/where the bolt at the end of the cable connects / anchors in with the seat.

My '95 didn't come with any armrests installed. They were removed when a previous owner installed the center jump-seat.
So... I don't have anything to remove and figure this out either.

thanks rusty. I'll be adding both... apparently there is no cable on the passenger seat to worry about.
best/only pic I've seen focusing on the cable/bolt. :thumbup

obviously that one pictured is loose and not secured. is that black tab looking metal piece where the cable-bolt/nut seats?
I also assume it would have to slide the cable down inside the seat-back cover to the bottom seat pad, where the nut and be secured from twisting as you tighten the nut to adjust/tighten the cable.

I'm probably wasting more time thinking about it than just doing it but I'm surprised we don't have anything better on this little angle. I've been gathering parts for some time now.
I've got a lot of things to change, update, install when I finally take it off the road so I'm really just prepping.
I'll have to whip up a fumbly install write-up on this thing so we have an easier reference available since photosuckit, the destroyer of write-ups has had their way.

When i did my seats, i married parts of my seats with parts from the JY to make an updated set.

I've probably introduced some sort of fatal safety risk, but i just cut off that cable.
