I wish Chrysler would have put adjustable armrests in the Pacifica. I find the armrests are way to low. So I decided to see what could be done. Here's what I found.
1) Take a small screwdriver and pop off the round plastic armrest cover at its pivot point. Below the cover you'll find a Torx bolt "T45" tip size.
2) Unscrew the shoulder bolt and the armrest will come off.
3) There is a fixture with a protrusion and tapped hole fixed to the seat (see picture of seat without arm attached). The protrusion stops the travel of the armrest by limiting the mating semi-circular channel in the armrest (the protrusion fits into channel).
4) By building up the inside of the channel (on the end that meets the protrusion when the armrest is in the down position) you can "adjust" its stopping position. This will "raise" the armrest.
I chose to use a 5/16" PVC fuel line that I cut in half. (see pictures). It adjusted the arm height to better fit my 6' 5" body. My wife (whose 5' 4") also prefers the raised armrest.
Maybe this info can help someone who also finds their armrest height to be to low.
