I make and sell 3rd row seat handle replacements. These break on our older gen MDXs. I have a 3rd Gen (2007-2013) and mine broke. So I designed a simply but effective replacement.

One guy with a 1st gen said it fit his vehicle too, but I have not tried it myself on 1st gen.

I sell these on Ebay and Etsy. Please see the links below for more info.
