Hell yeah!! Mine broke three times on the driver side and once on the passenger side. There is a guy that makes replacements that are strong enough not to break again. The website is
www.gmseatfix.com

It is much cheaper than having to buy the replacement from the dealership. I love my blazer, but I think they really went cheap on that part. I know a few other people that it happened to as well. Good luck.

Yeah, those replacements work great. I have one for my driver's side, still need one for passenger. Definetly worth getting.

I had this problem on a previous S-10, and I just started pushing the upper part of the seat back as I was releasing the lever and it seems to put ALOT less pressure on the cheesy plastic handle. Haven't broken one since...
