Re: seat moves!!!

Does it move and then "click" in to place?

How much does it move?

Re: seat moves!!!

the black steel bucket that the bottom foam sits in is really thin gauge mild steel.. the nut-serts ( welded nuts ) crack around the edges causing movement and at worst the hex head bolt to drop out.. any strange bolts under the seat or rolling around on the floor?

does it also lift up and down some? -- usually the front corners

To fix it you need to take the seat out and weld the nuts in with a washer for re-inforcement.. If that sounds like your problem and you want some more info I'll check the thread later

PS i usually ereplace the foam base at the same time .. so you get a nice springy seat

Its a DIY job if you have a welder
