Default Ranger 2010 xtra cab arm rest.....

My centre console with the fold down arm rest is toast. It is collapsing into itself. What a mess. I searched here and found all sorts of posts about this problem with earlier Ranger models. Is there a "fix"? Are aftermarket units available? Such a nice truck but this was a poorly engineered piece.

Amazon has a Dorman center console hinge that's made of steel IPCW FO2B for the ford ranger.I replaced mine a few years ago with a steel hinge.

Thanks for the info about the arm rest. I would be fearful that, after spending that much money, that it would be a similar problem to what came in the truck originally. I will struggle on with what I have for now.

Dantforth,
I am not saying that is what I did to fix anything. I was just showing what my fold down armrest looks like. Dorman does not make a replacement plate or hinge. I wish they did. I would just like to know how to take the existing one apart to repair it.

My problem is the same. I would like to remove my arm rest and repair it before reinstalling but it is not obvious how to disassemble and remove it. I was hoping someone would chime in here with instructions.

Thanks. That is a different arm rest than mine. I would like to just remove it completly from the truck so I can work on it on my bench. Getting it removed from the truck does not look easy to me. Dave

Trying to get photos to post

Picture 1. Carefully remove the foam. I was able to peel it off intact.
Picture 2. Shows 4 screws. These are removed with a T15 Torx driver.
Picture 3. Show what it looks like under to console top. There are several clips to release.
Picture 4. This what the underside of the lid looks like.
Picture 5. Show the damage I found.
