Seat support collapse?


Scotty

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their seat support collapse and then fix it. I would think there would be a repair kit for this. I did not take the seat out to inspect it yet, but it feels like something broke underneath. It feels like I am sitting in a hole..

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Hey Scotty,

Some hole's are good to be in......some not. The one you are talking about will cost you with no personal pleasurable gain. The one I am thinking about is about $150 an hour with the pleasurable gain. LOL

Good luck

If new seats are anything like the old seats--I have no clue--they have a combination of springs and/or spring strips. If they beak, you remove the cover/padding, and weld the broken peice. The problem with welding spring steel is that it takes the temper out, and--however long afterward--it stands a good chance of breaking next to the welded spot. I know you love tearing into them, so you don't mind yanking the seat and taking a look--huh?

Yes that is the next move, it seems to have gotten worse today. Maybe I can fix it without too much trouble by getting the part at a junk yard.

Hey Scotty,

I think Franey was referring to my post back in July. Here it is...

I am still very happy with my repair, it has held up very well. Not sure how similar your 96 seat would be. Hope this helps! ;)
