Does anyone out there have a problem with the reclining seat handle shaft breaking? I heard this is problem with these high back seats. Where can I get replacement bracket assy. besides the dealer?? Thanks.

Dealer has them in stock or look online at rockauto or gmpartsdirect. Easy repair after you remove the 4 seat bolts and then the few seatcover clips.

I've had that happen to both my 1999 and 2002 Blazers. Its a common problem, due to the soft alluminum shaft they use.
I just went to a junkyard, and yanked a new assembly.. Cost me $15

Yes, both of my seats in my 99 Jimmy have missing handles because of the same issue.

Both levers broke off in my 99 Jimmy. The remaining stub on the driver's side split in two pieces so the aftermarket handle won't work. Has anyone replaced the reclining mechanism? I see there are plastic clips connecting the upholstery to a bar. How do you remove the lumbar support knob? Any help would be appreciated.

Go to wittydeals.com and they have replacement handles that go over the broken one after evening it up and it's held in place with a set screw, Never have to fix it again.
