Use a pneumatic die grinder to grind two flat spots, parallel to each other on the shoulder of the threaded stud sticking out of the arm rest. Grind down enough on both sides and use a 7/16 open end wrench on it. Make sure the threads are clean on both surfaces and then thread the stud into the seat back armrest bracket. You can pull back the upholstery on the seat back far enough to expose the mount bracket so you can see what you are doing. You have to hold the armrest up and there will be a lot of tension as the stud turns in the armrest housing. Just make sure your not cross threaded and you will be fine. After the thread was in about 2/3 of the way; use a thinner wrench because the clearance between the armrest and the seat back bracket gets to tight for a standard wrench. Snug it down and make sure the arm rest moves up and down freely and your done.
