    Default 71 Skylark bench seat part need to find

    I just removed the driver side front seat back from my Skylark. I damaged the chrome piece that holds the pivot arm (correct name?) when removing it. This is the piece that attaches the seat back to the bench portion of the seat near the seat belt and it pivots on the arm when you fold the seat forward. . Is there an easy way to remove this? Maybe I can take the other side off without any damage. Are these pieces sold anywhere? Thanks.

    Maybe I need to explain. What I need is like an acorn nut, (chrome) that fits over the post that the side arm of the seat pivots forward on? Any body?

    We discussed this here many times...I believe the Buick version is no longer made...but ones
    for Chevelle and GTOs is available and you can use that version.

    Thank you George for the reply. I wasn't sure what to search for and had no luck looking. I will look into Chevelle and Pontiac parts, although I haven't seen it going through the OPG catalog online. There is a big swap meet here next Sunday, and I will be looking there as well.

    I found this in Legendary Auto interiors catalog. Looks exactly like mine. Worth a try if I can't find it locally. Hope it helps some one else looking for this. Unless the 64 -65 is a different size. Page I 15 in their online catalog.
