If your front seat fore and aft adjustment handle is cracked or broken, we have the right replacement upgrade for you, which is stronger and more comfortable to pull on. This is a beginner DIY job on most seats. You cut and chisel the old handle off and bolt on this new handle.

Replace those old corroded bolts with heavy duty zinc plated new bolts.

This is a sample of the nut plate they go into on the back attach point on the W123 front seats.


W116 and W123 Full Set of Seat Adjustment Replacement Handles

Made in the U.S.A. in our shop. Designed by Kent to be stronger and with a more comfortable grip.
