Center armrest won't close...

2008 CLS550.

The center arm rest, which must have a fancy mechanism inside which allows it to be opened from one side or the other, but not both at the same time, will not close now. It's open on the driver's side, and the tab at the back is all the way visible. The pins at the front and back (which normally sit inside the holes and which allow the armrest to rotate from the pass side) are also deployed.

If I try to push the tab in, I still can't depress the release button on the side to retract the pins. Can't release the other side either. Not sure if there's a super secret place to push with a screwdriver or something that would release the button or some way to depress the pins manually, or if somehow the mechanism inside is messed up and the thing will cost 4 figures for a whole new armrest when they could have just had it open from the front like every other friggin car on the planet...

Thanks for any advice...
