    Default Drivers arm rest.

    So I just bought a 2007 Siverado 4x4 extended cab and was told that the little seat inbetween the out side seats, folded down and became an arm rest for the drivers right arm. It wouldn't fold down. Of course when I took it to the GM dealer I was told that it's not movable and you have no arm rest for your right arm. Are you kidding me? They used to all fold down. Now what do I do? Is there an aftermarket replacement fold down seat? Can I get a folddown from a wrecked truck from a different year that I can use? Help please as I have"right arm droop". Thanks.

    From what you said, my guess is that you bought an 07 silverado classic. for the seats, it makes a difference. If you have the base cloth or vinyl, your center seat will not fold. It can be directly replaced with any folding console from a 99-07classic truck, or a full console from any 2003-07classic truck. If you get a folding seat, they required upscale fabric, so it will not match without replacing all seats.

    If i am wrong and it is a new body truck, all center seats fold down. hope this helps

    which body style is it? if it an 07 classic then you could pickup a 99-06 or 07 classic one from a junk yard

    If it were me, and i was told it would fold down by the dealer... I would hold them to it...make them fix it.

    If you bought this from a GM dealer you will get a survey in the mail...the sales person ususally schools you on which question he needs to you amswer "completley sastisfied" to....why? Becasue GM gives the dealer bounus money for these dealerships who maintain hign custmer satisfaction....and its thousands of dollars.

    So tell the dealer you wont answer that survey until they fix it....the few hundred dollars it will cost them will be worth it.

    I work with a guy who was a service mananger for a GM dealer in Phoenix who gave me that tip...it got the dealer here to replace both passenger side windows for me that had scratches in them on the outside which the dealer didnt want to replace due to dirt getting trapped in the felt weather stripping.
