TheSheerOg Just tried it, so it is ! This will make driving nicer :) So that's finally fixed, thanks again for the help !

nilskje It for adjusting the lower back support, if you sit in the seat and press your back agaist the seatback and rotate the wheel you will feel it, dont use to much force, then it will break again...

TheSheerOg Parts arrived, looks like I only needed the adapter, which has now been fitted but ..... I have no idea what its actual use is now ? I assumed it was for moving the arm back and forward, but all it seems to do is tighten up or loosen. Am I being completely thick and missing something obvious ?

Its snugly fitted, and twists around until a certain point where it goes no further, but doesn't seem to affect anything with the arm rest.

It never worked when I got the car, as it was broken from day 1, now its fixed, I don't even know what it does !

TheSheerOg Thanks for the response nilskje, I have ordered both parts now, will update the thread once arrived with how it goes :)

nilskje I think you will need the next part outwards as well, the shaft, the spare I got had the knob, shaft,and spacer as one part, but I can not find the partnumber..

TheSheerOg I enquired about this, and they came back to me with a part they believe I am after, 2A767, which is a spacer that goes inside. It very well looks like that is needed to hold it tightly into position, but I thought id do 1 last check on here before I proceed.

nilskje I had the same problem, Ford has a replacement part for this (or at least they had in 2011)

TheSheerOg Take it this is one of those things I will just have to leave as is :p I cant seem to find any anywhere ! Unless the knob is the same as the ones for adjusting seats ?

Ghis drivers seat arm rest

Hi everyone

When i bought my car, the arm rest on the drivers seat always had a bit of a wobbly turning knob, ive been trying to see if i could fix it recently, however when i pulled it out, i just found lots of shredded and snapped plastic inside. Looking at it again today, i see this had snapped from the end of the knob.

The arm rest can still be freely moved just by grabbing it, but i wouldnt mind fixing the minor thing just for the sake of it, if it can be done easily :)

Can i buy a replacement knob for this ?

I have attached photos of what i mean exactly -

(Ignore the filthyness of my car, it will be getting cleaned soon ;))
