    Send a message to Greg at Pace Performance and ask him nicely if he'll check the item by eyeball once you order it, and before he ships it out.

    Angry Driver side plastic crap - what is it called what is the number to order?

    Thanx!
    I am on 4 or 5 myself. Where do we order new?

    Greg at PacePerformance can order you a kit to fix this issue for 25 bucks..better than spending the 100 bucks for the side piece.

    I purchased the kit and modified it with some longer screws and changed where I put the screws ..worked out fine.

    Both front seats broke on mine (only 40K miles). I am usually not a "rig it" kind of guy but here is what i did on both and I have never had another issue.

    Drill a hole through the thick plastic tab that breaks and put a heavy zip-tie through the hole. Then route the tie through the hole on the seat frame. Make sure you use a long Zip-tie so you can pull it from the side or under seat once routed and connected. This allows you to put the zip-tie tight enough so the trim in next to the seat.

    What you get is some flex (because the trim is not solid against the seat frame) but it is close enough as to not look broken. Hope that makes sense. Seems better than replacing them over and over.

    So far, zero issues with this method and they have been repaired this way well over a year.

    Piece to drill through (one side to the other):

    I did that maybe 2 years ago but I used 2 zip ties still going strong. Mine was the passenger seat. MY Gt is not broken yet but it hangs out a bit on the passenger seat will end up doing the same thing ,even thought I bought the plastic trim will wait till it no longer holds.
