Hi there

 

Basically the lever to pul to lower the seat to let others into the back has snapped on my passenger seat. I've got a 2001 3dr ford fiesta (mk 5) and i've searched everywhere and they only sell replacements for mk6 models.

 

What can I do? Would a mk 6 lever fit in my ford (or could it be fitted)?

http://compare.ebay....13=80&ff14=63Or

 

(I doubt)

 

 

Or does anyone know where I could pick up a mk 5 lever?

Thanks very much

I'm not sure whether the seat lever for the mk6 would fit your car (probably not) I had to buy a lever for my mk6, git it off eBay for just over 20 quid, however the price from the parts dept at my local ford dealer was similar, so I would recommend you give your local dealer a call, surely can't be that expensive.
Hope this helps.
Lets know how you get on.

Thanks Fiesta 1.25, I will try some more local dealers, but haven't had any luck with the ones I've rung so far.

 

DanGersFord, I will try filling out that form, regarding the ebay part you sent me, it is not the exact replacement but do you think it would fit mine? I've added some picture of mine

 

I've got some photos of my part, but can't upload them so if you could give me your email address or some other way of sending them to you to look at I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks a lot

Hi just got a quote through for you, using the link DanGersFord sent..... it will cost 29.20 delivered, although I priced the drivers side and just noticed its the passenger side you need, I don't suppose there will be a difference in the price though.

Either that or try a breakers yard? You might get lucky and get hold of one for next to nothing

Thanks guys for all your help!

I've found a car that has the part in a scrap yard, other than a hack saw would I need anything else to tear it out? Lol

I might just consider 4 doors next time Dan!

I take it as just the lever snapped I wouldn't need a cable or anything?

What an effort for just a bit of plastic ay!

Can't really say for sure on the mk5 but on the mk6 you have to watch what you remove as there's a piece of plastic which MUST be left in place or there will be nothing to hold the cable in place and nothing for the new handle to attach and clip onto..... I still have the fitting instructions with the one I bought, once I finish work I will take a photo of it and upload the pic (if I think it might help you)

Not sure (without seeing a pic of yours) whether you need a new cable too..... Can you see the end of the cable nestled in the remaining part of handle? There should be like(the end of a bikes brake cable) you should be able to grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it and operate the seat?

Fiesta 1.25

 

The seat still functions when I pull the wire perfectly, it's just the handle that has snapped. Could I send you an email, with the pictures I took on it? Unless there's a way to upload them onto this post?

 

Thanks
