Remove as much of the cover on the armrest as you can. On the right side of the foam, near the back of the armrest you will find a hole. You will need a long extension and a star socket (I'm not sure of the size). The bolt has right hand threads and is in tight. You may have to work at it to get it loose but be patient with it.

Good luck.

The cover has a zipper along the side, so getting it removed enough to get to the bolt hole is not a problem. I've removed mine but did not reinstall. I would think reinstalling the arm rest should be fairly simple and straight forward. All you need to do is follow the removal steps in reverse.

Sorry about that, mine did. Question: You mentioned "armrest/storage." Does that mean there is a storage compartment in the arm rest? Also, what kind of covering does the armrest have? Mine has a steel core with a block of foam molded around it and has a fabric cover that matches the seat upholstery. How does that compare to what you have.
As I think about it more, your '93 is one generation newer than my '91.

Hopefully someone else will come along and help you out.

I have the same. It is a center console that has one wide arm rest that lifts up for storage. I took a quick look at mine but I needed extra light to see how it comes off. As it is about to storm here I'll have to wait.

Im pretty sure you have the same one that I have in my ranger. You need to open the door and look on the inside there will be a little acsess panel in the middle pop it off and you will see the head of the bolt (that is what holds it on and is the pivot point. IIRC it is a torx drive (bigger one maybe T50)
