Re: 99 Blazer (S-Series) - Broken Recliner handle FIX
I saw that part on eBay and was not really impressed. I felt it was over priced for what it was. If it was cheaper, say $10-15, I woulda tried that. Getting the seat out was not bad just the 1 torx bit was hard. The redesigned part is almost the same, except the "post" only has one slot instead of two. I don't think it will crack off as easy.
Oh, and it was the wife's Blazer. I can restify/modify my Silverado, but she prefers I do not experiment on her truck.
Oh, the only other thing I have had with the Blazer was that the rear glass in the hatch worked it self out. I found a used glass hatch, and it was like $300.
We bought the Blazer used with 30k miles, the warranty work done shortly after at the dealer included the front coil springs, oil pan gasket, transmission lines and rear seal in the tranny. Keep an eye one those lines!
Good truck for the last 30K miles she put on it, small gas tank though.
