Default Dorman help #77199 seat release handles.

The driver seat release lever broke the end off the shaft. The dorman kit has deeper sleeves and claims to attach to broken shafts. It does however the screw is the same length as factory and is too short. It is an improvement and a longer screw with jb weld will attach it permanently. Putting the other on the non broken passenger side will keep that from breaking. If your shaft is only broken at the splines it will work without gluing. For $10 I'm happy with the purchase.
