I recently broke mine while getting into the seat. Contacted the manufacturer(Schukra) to see if I could get the replacement part for a little less than what dealers are charging. Out of my surprise, they were willing to supply me with a new piece for free + free 2 day intl shipping. :D

Do you have any address or phone number for Schukra? I think I have the same problem.

The lumbar in my 2005 MDX is a motorized cable design. Two way only, just in or out, no up and down. The cable pulls the "basket" top and bottom together to create a bend in the spine. This bending stress seems to break either at the top or the bottom of the six rows of ribs. Someone had pictures of adding steel plate supports on both sides of the break and then riveting it all together, but that is beyond my skill set.

Check the service manual. You need to remove the seat back, and you might break the heated seat element.
