Son has a 1.6 ghia 2002 and leaned on the arm rest,snapping noise and obviously broken,raised it back up but now it wont go back down.

Had a nosey but cant see anything obvious.
I assume that whatever is broken is inside the drivers seat and not the rest ?

More likely to be within the arm rest itself (centre console area) possibly the hinges.

I had this a few times and found sometimes I had something small stuck between the armrest and the hinge, so small that I didnt notice it, and after a few days, I finally found it. Was only a tiny piece of plastic, seems to have broken off from a pen!

Still not got it sorted but had a nosey again and the plastic ring,circular bit that goes into the side of the seat looks like its cracked and split so gonna look around for an arm rest to test but gotta feeling that they are pretty hard to get hold of.

Probably a scrappy is your best bet!
