1981 to '93 Mustangs pretty much all suffer from a couple of common broken seat parts. Namely, the seat back latch knob and bezel. On our '93 Cobra here the knobs already completely broken and missing, and somebody over tightened the screws so the bezel is cracked. Luckily it's a very simple fix and they're available separately or in a kit that includes new attaching hardware.
If there's any remnants of your broken knob on the seat latch, go ahead and take a pair of pliers and remove it off the shaft. All you need to remove it is a Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the single Phillips head screw, slide the bezel off the seat, slide the bezel back into the seat being sure to properly locate the tabs. Reinstall the screw and, finally, you can put your new knob back in place.
There you go. That took less than a minute. And we've restored just one more part in our Mustang interior. For more Mustang interior parts for your Fox body check out latemodelrestoration.com.
