I busted mine once. Found one at that yard for I think less than $10. I had to drill out the holes for my buttons, but fit just fine. I noticed in the order that they do not ask which side and they paint it to match the color. As much as I kick that part every time I get in my Cougar, I would think that paint would get marred and lose it's luster over time, unlike solid colored plastic. $39 sems a bit steep, but if you are in a crunch and need it now, it might be worth it.

Just my two cents.

Do you know how rare that part was? Unbroken MANUAL driver seat trim with Lumbar/Bolster cutouts, I've been desperately trying to find that for years!

Then this is PERFECT for you!!!! As I said, if you can't find one, this will fit the bill just fine.

That company only makes the driver's side. I wonder if they need a mint passenger piece to mold....

Fwiw, I have a pile of these in various configurations and colors. I used to grab every good one I saw.

I've only ever found ONE intact driver's manual panel, and it doesn't have those lumbar/bolster holes. That is a unicorn part.

Having this option is a good thing. I would have thought that ANY of those pieces out of a junkyard that are still intact would be a unicorn. All it takes is a big person carelessly plopping down into the seat one time to polish one of those off.
