Title: Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari..broken Sabelt seat back release lever!
Post by: Chris Loh on February 25, 2019, 09:23:38 am
Hi everyone! I am new here and I have a problem with my front left passenger seat - 2011 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari. My car comes with the Sabelt type seats with carbon fibre back. The seat lever/handle to release the seat back for tilting forward for rear seat access is broken (one end of the plastic pull handle that meets the cable broke in two, pics attached)

Does anyone here knows where I can find/buy a replacement lever and and also instructions to replace it? In order to get to the release lever/handle, it looks like the carbon seat back would need to be taken out. I am scratching my head on how to do that.. Can somebody please help..?
Any help and information would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

Hi Chris,

Did you managed to fix this? I’m in the same situation and can’t figure out how to detach the back shell of the seat.

Thanks!

There were ones on eBay recently which were moulded. Still pricey but cheaper than Fiat one.
