Seat Adjuster Handle


anyone know where I can find one of these? or does anyone have one theyd like to sell? The same person that broke my front spoiler, and was recently written up in the local newspaper for wreckless driving(my brother) pulled a little to hard on it one day and it just snapped off.

Used to be able to buy a black nylon version of just the loop handle to replace the original pot metal one. Maybe you can call Pelican and ask if they have it?

I have one if you want it; I seem to always keep a spare pretty much for reasons like this.

I just checked. I bought it 12/30 on eBay for $50 (effin' eBay) inc. shipping. I won't dis anyone, since he might be a member here. Same is fine.

Two things. (1) The handle needs to be sprayed black and (2) if that is too dear, don't worry about it, you'll keep me from having to locate another spare.

Pelican does or did sell the plastic replacement ones. I have the remains of one on my passenger's seat rail. They don't last forever either...

I don't think I've had a car yet with the handles installed, the blond included.

Work fine for me without the handles.

hey rob, if it snaped off and if is the metal one you can just rivit it back on. mine did the same and i used copper rivets as the factory did. easy job and u can polish the handels . i used cc44d rivits. i would not go to plastic if your handels are good. just a thought. jc

The handle usually breaks where the first rivet hole is. Do you drill more holes to re-rivet?

You have to drill holes in the plastic handles, then use either rivets or screws to hold them in. They break at the first hole as well. Sadly, it doesn't seem to take them long to do that.

Is there a nice way to recondition the seat rails? I have one that is in good working condition but just has a little surface rust. Anyone want to recommend something?

To be honest, i dont know what you guys are talking about.. does the black thing brake off? if so does it brake off completely? Both of mine are both on there.. but one of them seems to be a little stuborn, probably my poor seat install (soon to fix that) Thanks guys

The loop handle breaks, usually at the first rivet hole. So you wind up having to reach under the seat to push up on the locking tab to adjust the seat position.

I wonder if those are plastic or metal? They look like the plastic replacement ones.
