Ive got some kind of random spring that keeps popping in and out on my front drivers seat. It doesnt poke out or anything but i can tell that somthing is not sitting right. I happens everytime is **** my wieght while sitting. Is there anything i can do to fix this without tearing up my car. I was thinking about swapping the front seat tops. They look identicle other than the seatbelt thingy, but that can easily be switched. Is there anything i can do and would it be possible to switch the tops? Thanks- jason

The seat support is kinda weak. I tore my drivers seat open to find the metal support had broken. I used a coat hanger to fab a new "hook" and reinstalled. Another guy on the site used zip ties. But you would need to remove the cover. Or find a new/used seat to swap but alot of people are looking for good leather.

yeah, not the lumbar support.

the lumbar support is the adjustable part that pops out to provide support to your lower back..sometimes mine pops out or in on its own..hence why i asked at the time.

There is a velcro strip at the bottom of the seatback. It's tight but you can pull the cover off. Good luck.

i honestly dont think its the lumbar support only because it hits me mid back at the top of that differnt fabric ...i do not have an adjustable lumbar knob either if that makes any difference... im not sure if anyone answered this but cant i just switch the top halfs of the driver and passenger seats?

I've got a similar issue, but it's in the rear of the seat, so it doesn't bother me. Something's broke, just too lazy to check it out.
