hi all, has anyone had any luck releasing a stuck arm rest, I have 3 sets all stuck and would like them to move, they are wheel horse style so they foam and rubber coated, I don't know if any of the penetrating fulids will eat the foam, and heat is out of the question, it would be nice to rest my arm while mowing and holding my 52 oz bubba mug . ha ha ha!

I wouldnt think WD40 would hurt the foam.

Maybe put some fresh motor oil in a squirt can and soak them and try to take a block of wood and get it moving enough to go back and fourth?

Total hip shot here

Pb blaster or wd40 will be fine, neither should hurt the foam.

I have gotten PB blaster and Liquid Wrench onto vinyl seats before with no harm. WD-40 is a waste of time in my opinion (no offense Olds 455)
