Sorry, kids, when I posted the "hey, we got the Fiat 500's seat adjuster fixed and it was free and easy and the dealership is still as friendly as it was before Fiat" blog, I did not post a picture of the fixed lever. Uhm, it was my first day at this? Sorry, bad move.

Anyway, here it is. And you'll notice, it's not some skimpy thing, it's actually fairly solid and if you look where it actually broke, it's a little surprising. It's not on the bend, or where there's a seam or a detail. Nope, it just snapped in the middle of what could be the thickest part.

Go figure.
