New Old Stock Ford bracket with attaching parts. Repairs the Driver Side bucket inner seat pivot. Ford service replacement part.
A very common breaking point on the upper portion of the driver side inner, can now be easily repaired. If you have a '68 or '69 Cougar or Mustang, check the driver seat back attachment for the recall / campaign fix. There should be a heavy bracket secured by a bolt over the seat back attachment. There is a heavy pin on this bracket that forms the pivot for the seat back when positioned forward. This bracket carries a D7AA-69618C46-A or D7ZZ-69618C46-A service replacement part number. Without this bracket, the front seat back pivot can break, allowing the seat back to fall rearward. Losing control this way leads to the sort of excitement you want to avoid! If you drive the car, put the bracket on soon! If you are selling the vehicle, at least inform the new owner of the situation.
