This is on your 77 Club Cab? I didnt think they had actual buttons on that year...I have been wrong before...could this seat be out of a later model/year? Any pics? My 77 parts book shows latches and latch plates but no buttons. :)

Those funky plastic buttons are stock. ;) Go look at the 79 TD sport. It should have the plastic buttons also. The ramcharger front bench and clubcab bench should be the same. Late A-bodies also used the buttons probably 73 and up. 8)

My first suggestion is to try Mopar and see what they say. The old ones that were actual colored plastic are no longer available but it looks like they went to a generic button that needs to be painted to match the interior. Try this number with your local Dodge dude and see what he says.

Part #...L305EK1 BUTTON, Seat Back Latch (paint as required) N N N YL305EK1

well, i got my bench seat back yesterday!
man o' man, a very nice job.
all kind of pleats and piping that was not there to start with.
nicely covered over the driver side push button hole.
he also painted the other push button and seat belt cover things on the lower sides of the seats to match the tan vynal, and he even repainted all the seat base.
$285, i dont know if thats good or not, but seemed way fair to me.

however, iff'n you do get around to fabing some aluminum push buttons, count me in!

Looks like Dodge discontinued these buttons and there is only one left at www.arizonaparts.com for $5 plus shipping. Maybe you could use it to fab some new ones. Someone also mentioned that these may have been used on the A-body cars..that might be another avenue to approach as their are many resto parts shops on the web.:)
