Center arm rest

My 1982 380sl the center armrest just fell off. What holds the pivot shaft to the seat bracket?

The shaft is welded to a bracket which bolts to the seat.

It appears that there is some sort of brass ring on the end of the shaft or is that just where they braised it to the bracket. I don't see any weld beads

Your right. I was looking at a picture on the computer. I pulled out the old arm rest and what I thought was weld was just rust. It's not obvious how it is attached but it could be welded back together.

Thanks I have a scrap parts 1979 450 that I don't remember if it has an armrest or not. I will rob it if I have to. Bought for $600 and got $1500 in parts of of it the first day.
