Passenger Side Armrest fell off

The problem started out as we couldn't completely raise the armrest. Yesterday, it just fell off. The dealer says they have ordered the complete chair. While this is under warranty, I really need to know if this can be fixed, because we are going on a 30 day trip at the end of the week and the ordered chair won't be in by then. Any thoughts?

Looks to me like a pin, or bolt, fell out. You might try pushing the seat material in to see if you can put some type of temporary fastener in.

If you pull the seat into a full recline position, you will have access to the area. Takes a small hand to put your hand up that far into the seat back but I just did it. You might find the pin floating around at the bottom of the seat back when your feeling around in there.
