FITS THE FOLLOWING: all W116 chassis sedans from 1973 to 1980 and all W123 chassis sedans, wagons, and coupes from 1977 to 1985. If the SIDE black plastic seat adjustment handle is cracked or broken (making it hard to adjust the height of the seat) then here is an easy and clever way to fix it without having to take the seat out of the car. This handle will bolt right onto the existing metal adjusting bar. All you have to do is take a chisel and break off all the old original handle to expose the holes in the bar. Next, take this new handle and bolt it right onto the existing hole or holes without any modification. Some slight drilling (drifting) of the front hole on the front handle lever of some models may be required. ( this can be done with a small drill or small round file).
In years past we were able to get this handle from another supplier but it is no longer available. So Kent set you to design and manufacture his own version. If you have ever pulled on these handles you know how uncomfortable they are to your hand. So this handle is slightly larger ( allowing you to insert three fingers easily). It is also more rounded for comfort and beefed up for strength.
PLEASE NOTE: Some of the old videos and pictures show black screws. We are no longer able to get those so all current handles are being supplies with chrome screws as shown in the picture above.
He also changed the angle to a straigher base so the handle sits a little further away from the side of the side making it easier to grab and pull up on.
