center console lock problem

OK - not a very hardcore issue - but I'm puzzled . . . the lower section (receiver) of my center console lock is stuck in what must be the locked position. So, when I close the console lid it won't close fully - sits up about an inch.

I've tried all kinds of push and pulling and can't get the little toggle/lever in the receiver to budge.

Any advice on how to get it out/fix it - hopefully not replace?

I replaced mine, it would stick open and closed. Think I paid $15 for the replacement.

Yours is probably adjusted wrong or is backwards. I've seen both situations. Post a picture of the arm rest latch and the receptical.
