broken seat trim

hey guys i have a question,

i broke the tabs off the trim panel on the side of my driver seat on my 06 ss. its the piece that has all the buttons for the seat controls. is this a piece that is available on its own or do the dealers try and make you buy the whole seat? if its available does anyone have a part number?

i dunno how it happened and i doubt its warrentied so if its got a part number i just want to pick up a new one

Warranty that s**t. Just a guess, but it probably broke where the screw is recessed in the deep tunnel. At least that is where mine broke.

Broken

I broke mine too, but it's probably cause I weigh almost 250lbs and the edge of the seat compressed enough (when I was getting in) to bust the three tabs.. Since I would probably end up breaking a new piece eventually, I just rivetted some angle brackets to slide into the holes for the original tabs.

It is available through the dealer. I just ordered one and can give you the part number when I get it.

I am pretty sure that Fishhunter911 had this very same issue fixed under warranty.

I did the same thing and it's because I was rolling out of the seat and it puts pressure on the side of the seat cushion and transfers that pressure to the plastic piece below.

Most of us have broken that part (or the pass side piece), the dealer fix is to use a washer under the screw. I hate to say it, but it seems to work.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread--mine's broken too. I'm a big ole boy, but the plastic clips on mine that held it to the seat seemed awfully flimsy. The screw in front was all that was holding mine on the seat. All the other plastic clips had given way.

Any part number help would be appreciated. Want to order replacement soon. Gotta get the truck shipshape so she'll be ready to sell / trade for the 2010 Camaro...

Should be in the parts list in the resources section. I had the same piece replaced under warranty and the part number had been changed twice after the list came out. Cheap part, under $15 if I remember correctly.
