Loose driver seat

Post by Dewies » 24 Jun 2018 00:07

Any advice please
I have a 2006 4.8GRX of which the driver seat is loose. It is really frustrating and irritating especialy when one brakes - the seat then shifts forward(about 0.5cm) Initially I thought there is a loose bolt/screw but I couldn’t find anything and Im thinking it might be the electric mechanism responsible for adjustments that is sort of worn out?

Any suggestions/advice or someone that had a similar problem?

Thanks

Mine does the same.
I actually don’t notice it anymore even.

I can’t remember who I mentioned it to long ago and they said there’s no fix for it. If that’s true or not I don’t know

I had the same issue in both seats. Replaced the passenger one - apparently it was the worm gear, but left the drivers one as it wasnt that bad.
