Alfa 155 Arm rest

I need some help and figured someone out there might know. Basically a good
friend of mine who I converted to Alfa's a few years ago, owns a 155, Now
whilst transporting an exercise bike round to my house (Don't ask...) he
managed to rip off the arm rest attached to the drivers seat. Now I feel
partly responsible and had a look at trying to fit it back on. It's fitted
by the use of 3 bolts that are tightened using an allen key, problem is that
you can't actually get an allen key into the top of the bolt on account of
it being wedged into the armrest...I'm not really explaining myself here am
I.. I need someone to tell me if there's a magicical bit that I need to
remove so that I can gain access to the bolts...It seems imposible other
than cutting down an allen key so that I can squeeze it in...Please please
somebody help... any info or links would be most gratefully received.

Cutting an allen key down does work - but trying to tighten the bolts down is a complete b@stard...

After a bit of trying you will suddenly realise that the arm fixes telescopically onto the flange which bolts to the seat. ie it pulls apart with some effort, thus enabling the use of a normal length allen key.

btw, if anyone wants a cut down allen key which fits these bolts, email your address & I will send it [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] with the 2 hack saw blades it took [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

If the car is a 16v with the grey and red piping seats, getting the armrest off is fairly easy:

Put the armrest to the middle of its arc ie halfway between down and up, now pull and waggle and it should come out of its socket.
