Early 99 interior questions

So I was cleaning the truck out today and found some stuff I had never noticed before.

First my truck is an extended cab, and on the passenger side rear door there is an ash tray, but not on the drivers side rear door.... Why?

Next I have power seats but what are the little orange round nobs? they are located in the middle of the plastic part underneath the cushion on both sides. What are they for and is there a cover for them?

And lastly what does your middle seatbelt in the front seat look like? All three of mine in the back are plastic and two in the front are plastic, but the middle seat has a metal buckle. Is that normal?

Ill get pictures tomorrow

Thanks

Dunno, that's how mine is

Are you taking about the knob that is on the door side of the seat in the little recess, pretty center? Mine are black, but I believe its a lumbar support thing. (read it doesn;t do anything) or atleast mine don't.

My middle one is also a metal buckle.

Ill get pictures tomorrow

Thanks

Ok sweet! I guess I dont need to get pictures then seems pretty weird to mix and match stuff like the seatbelts and stuff, I thought maybe it had been replaced

Ya! the lumbar suppport knobs, one is orange the other is blue, no idea why. I turned and turned mine and it didnt seem to change anything. So is there a cover for the knobs? It seems pretty weird to just sit in a hole like that.

Thanks for the reply!

This is just some picture I googled.


The big black knob in the middle is what I'm talking about, IIRC the drivers side is light blue and the pass is orange under the knob. They break easily and mine don't like to stay on. The knobs just slide over the colored parts. once the little tab that holds them in is broken, they will just fall out, probably what happened to yours.

The lever thing to the rear of the knob is what lets you recline the seat, just incase you don't have that lever either.

I'm going to disable my power seats, I never move them (on purpose). I find that I move them by accident all the time. Probably going to just add a small toggle to kill power all the time, then when I actually want to move them, just flick it, move the seat, and flick it back. lol, honestly, I'd rather just have a manual seat.

Oh ya, I guess I am missing both handles the round one and the lever. Thats interesting, Ill have to try and find the knobs and maybe glue them on.

I know about the power seat thing, mine tend to ride up so every few days I got to re-adjust them, the power is nice if there are lots of people in and out, but for me its got one sweet spot which I can hardly ever find.

Google comes in pretty handy, seems like when I get on here I forget how to use it!!

Thanks
