ok... went to YouTube and searched that phrase. Got this vid:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3VQpk48fUE

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.
hey, just fixed my sagging armrest! thanks boys!

I know this is an old post but I'm having the same problem. Found a repair part on Bronco Graveyard that replaces the OEM bracket that breaks on 92 - 96 Broncos.

I have a 1990 Bronco that currently does not have the arm rests installed. I am in the middle of rebuilding and just ordered new seat upholstery from Stock Interiors and just confirmed that the kit comes with arm rest covers. So...i would like to go to the local JY to find some to give to my shop to put on.
A.) Do all seats have mounting brackets to receive/add/bolt on factory arm rests?
B.) Which arm rests are interchangeable with my Bronco?
C.) When i find the arm rests from the JY, what other parts or brackets should i take from the doner?

Thank you,
~Erik

Edit due to poor typing
Yo Erik,
We have to go out for awhile, but will try to bbl.
I have no experience with the 90s seats as to arm rests being standard or optional equipment.
But you may be able to gain some info in

For now, a yard that uses Hollander Interchange can search other yards and have item shipped including some Canadian yards.
They may be able to identify Fords with similar bemuch seat arm rest parts.

What the hell is the cable for anyway? It’s a humdrum conundrum...

The cable is meant to raise the armrest up when the seat is flipped forward and slide to the front to allow access to the back seat.
