Actually the seat was originally designed with the side lever before Ford added the Side Impact Airbag option.
My passenger seat lever broke about 3 months into ownership. Ford had to visually see it was broken . Two trips to the dealership one to confirm my claim, another to go pick up the part because it wasn't in stock. A pain in the ****.
I nowuse the lower side levers to avoid another casualty.
No, standard MO.
1. Visual confirm customer claim.
2. Order part. Never in stock.
3. I installed my own on my return trip.
+1 on the side levers.
PS: The biggest PITA is my Dad's 2003 Explorer. To get into the back seat on the driver's side, you need to move the electric seat forward all the way, flip the seat down, get in, move the electric seat backard all the way, flip the seat up, and go. Takes about 90 seconds each time.
We carry all aftermarket Chrome and Billet Accessories at great prices.
If your going to replace might as well make it look even better for the buck!
Those are for the power seat *****, which are available in billet. The ***** that are breaking are located on the back of the upper seatback (front seat), kinda near the headrest, and nobody but Ford is CURRENTLY making them. Me thinks that is about to change!

Somebody stole the one off my '06 'vert (top down). Their's probably broke and they priced one from the stealership.
Just for stuff & grins I looked on Amazon. I got a pair (made of metal) for $24.95 for a pair with free shipping. Installation, just a dab of RTV and push on and let dry. Talk about a better mousetrap. Look just like the factory ones.

Just wanted to give update on that part. It seems that this part use to sell for 30+ now its 45+ depending on where you go. Ford now wants 75 bucks to fix this. I've been trying to look for a knock off replacement for cheap but no joy.
Both the ***** on the '06 I just bought are missing. What a pain. I want to replace them just for completeness sake, but nobody is ever going to sit in the back seats anyway. They'll be way down on the list.
