Arm of BarcaLounger is. Loose ?

The arm on one side of our BarcaLounger is loose. How do I tighten it up . It is leather recliner . Help

Due to the space restriction on mounting points because of the need for the chair to move, recliner arms tend to be mounted only on one wooden rail, which leads to an inherent weakness in the design. A loose arm, although it can be caused by loose bolts, is normally due to the wooden mounting rail sheering from the arm frame. Access to this is via removal of the material (or leather) and removal of the recliner metal action. It's a huge job that is beyond most DIYers.
