Could improve with some restoration or is an excellent core. Looks nice from 5-10 feet on a daily driven car. The part has heavy aging and wear which would include heavy pitting, large cracks, deep scratches, minorly broken pieces etc.
BUT is mostly complete, not broken severely and serviceable. Can be used on your daily driver only if you have a completely broken piece, are missing the part entirely or are looking for a core to rebuild / restore.The Cove has grown rich with the parts plundered off many fine Cadillacs that were abandoned to time and tide. Saved from certain doom by the valiant Captain Cadillac and his trusty comrade Captain VonSneer, they have been cleaned and stored till they are once again needed by you, my loyal land yacht captains! 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 Cadillac Chevrolet Buick Oldsmobile Pontiac 6-Way Power Bench or Bucket Seat Transmission Solenoid Plastic Gear Casing Housing NEW. 1979-88 Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiacs with 6-Way Power Seats.
Driver and Passenger side under Seat. Finally available to the GM restoration community! A Captain Cadillac's exclusive reproduction of the 1979-88 GM power seat transmission plastic gear / solenoid casing made out of tough white ABS plastic, an upgrade to the original style nylon casings which as everyone who has one knows, shatter after years of heat and usage. Until now, there have been no replacement housings available, leaving restorers with no choice but to either find a good used casing or send the remains of their transmission out to be restored at a hefty cost.
9 out of 10 seat transmissions suffer a casing failure as opposed to mechanical/electrical failure, leaving the seat motor disconnected from the transmission. Don't be fooled by the recent surge of China based sellers who claim to have this casing for sale. Please check the transmission you are repairing as this type of plastic housing seat transmission was the primary style used thru the GM lineups but some models may use a combination unit in lieu of a motor + transmission like this. This is a limited reproduction run of these casings so once they sell out, that's all folks! Don't wait till your 40+ year old casing shatters, leaving your seat and you in an uncomfortable position.
