Default Arm rest rotates too far down

The driver's seat armrest rotates too far down. It goes up to the proper spot when compared with the passenger side. When putting it down, it just doesn't stop where it should and the front of it is about 3" lower than it should be. It is a bit of a pain, because not only is it too low to be used, but it is in the way of the seat belt and needs lifted to buckle and unbuckle. Has anyone encountered this before? Can it be fixed?

Most likely the stop has broken inside the seat. Replace the seat or take the seat apart to see what's broke and if a part can be purchased to repair it.

How do I remove the back of the seat back? I assume it is clipped in and I don't want to damage or break anything.
