These billet aluminum seat lumbar caps from JCaps are precision machined parts designed to fit over the existing OEM knobs. There are radial grooves machined into the rear surface of the cap that interlock with the “grips” on the OEM knob. To install, simply place a few drops of water on the OEM knob and press them together between your thumb and forefingers. Make sure the grooves on the cap are aligned prior to pressing them together. Also, since there is no direct line of sight for the sun to hit the caps, they do not get hot or cause distracting glare on sunny days. The larger diameter cap and cogged grip allows for improved seat adjustment over the bare plastic knob. Machined text on the surface of the cap means "lumbar adjustment" in German.
Note: Model year 2002 and older vehicles may require the purchase of the updated style knobs in order for these caps to fit. Please see ES317645.
JCaps started back when Jay, a mechanical engineer, became the proud owner of a brand new 2004 R32. He sought after high quality, billet machined accessories to dress up the engine bay and interior, but nothing on the market met his high quality standards. The only option was for him to engineer and produce his own precision machined components. The response on the forums was so overwhelming that he began selling them to other enthusiasts, who also shared his attention to quality and detail. All JCaps products are precision machined from 6061 series billet aluminum and include stainless steel hardware, where needed. ECS Tuning is proud to be the exclusive distributor of JCaps by providing the entire catalog in one, convenient online store.
