Question BA Electric Seats

For those with electric adjustment (forwards and backwards) on their BA seats. It would appear some movement is 'normal' under braking and/or accelleration. The old dealer statement comes forth ("they are all like that").
I have asked for a definitive statement from Ford, how much movement in mm is normal.
No answer yet but I intend to fit a linear displacement transducer and datalogger to quantify the actual movement in my BA Fairmont Ghia.
I suggest that if you can feel the movement while driving it is too great and may cause distraction, therefore a safety issue.
Appreciate some feed back from others with 'Premium Seats'.

Re: BA Electric Seats

I haven't heard of anything, and no-one I talk to who have BAs have said anything. Isn't there a system in the Monaro that lets the seat slide a bit when braking to give more comfort? Or am I gullible?

Supermono,

I have some slack on my seats, feel it more when accelerating rather than brakes. Dealer said the same thing " All like that"

The seats in my brothers XR6 Turbo move around under braking, but the seats in my XR8 do not move at all, so saying they are all like that is a load of crap. When the service manager says that to you it means they couldn't be bothered fixing it.

Re: BA Electric Seats

My wife is half a foot shorter than me so we are constantly moving the seat back and forward and we have NO play with the mechanism. Mind you the wife just discovered what the adjustable pedals switch actually does...8 months later.

The system in the monaro just cuts the wiring which was routed the wrong way , causing the driver to get jammed between the wheel and the seat and have an accident. Did I hear recall .

Seriously though , my ute and my mates sedan have no movement at all , and I wouldn't expect there to be any .
