Is there some reasonable way to increase height of inner armrest on 300D driver seat? I don't mean to fold it up - I mean to have it higher in deployed position so that my arm can rest on it without my having to bend downward. Inner armrest on my 91 350SDL is considerably higher - just right to rest my arm on it with hand on steering wheel - helps me steer with very small and precise movements of hand, wrist, etc.
Surely there must be some waay to bring this armrest up to meet my folded arm, instead of having to push arm way down to an uncomfortable position to touch the armrest. Any tips? TIA

If you take off the armrest and disassemble the locking mechanism, you may be able to see what is failed. It is usually the little rubber bushings.

BENZMAC,

Thanks for reply, but has the armrest mechanism failed? In deployed position, it is NOT below horizontal and does not feel sloppy, worn, etc.
