WTB: Seat Tracks

W123 Chassis Application.

I am looking for the driver's side seat track WITHOUT height adjustment. It is a much simpler track system, it's a direct bolt on for the W123 Chassis Application. I am looking for a nice, decent unit. No heavy rust or corrosion, no missing pieces, should have decent fluid motion back and forth. I currently have one with the height adjustment, which is a PITA to take apart and put back together.

PM if you have one.

Thanks in advance !

So you're looking for just the tracks to go front to back?

I've got some.

yes, there are two flavors of tracks. Those which just go back and forth and those which go back and forth and up and down. I just want the back and forth. The track system is 100% simpler with just the back and forth. Would you mind posting some snappies to make sure we are on the same sheet of music?

I have an extra set on the bottom of euro leather seats that I am fairly certain don't have height adjustment. the driver didn't have a center arm rest either
Want the whole seats with black leather skins?

I will double check quality in the morning

This is a curious thread.

I am pretty tall with long legs. To push the seats all the way back in Ol' Yeller ('83 300D) to get comfortable, I have to drop them all the way down and then I have a tough time getting out of the car! Are these back and forth tracks particularly unusual?

Thanks!

No, not really. I was a dope for not grabbing the driver's side at the yard. It has the track for back and forth, but the "height" is nothing but a black bracket held in by the large yellow cadium plated phillips screws. There is a large silver bolt which goes thru the bracket into where the "B" pillar terminates at the floor. Very simple system, plus I get to shed about 15 pounds. The height adjustment is a PITA to take apart since you have to manipulate the tracks back and forth to access the various yellow cadium plated scews. With the simple back and forth, everything is eyeballed accessible. When I needed the height adjustment tract, I found the simple system and now it's vice versa. LOL

I second that!!

After swapping several passenger side seat springs onto driver tracks, I got fairly efficient at finding all those mystery screws that hold the series of tracks together. Still a PITA!

Couldn't you use a passenger set of tracks though?
Worst case: the handle would be on the outside instead of inside
