Drivers Seat is no more.

Got in to my car last night and the seat droped. and went back. Got home and had a look and the frame of the seat has broken.

To be honnest it's pissed me off a bit i am a bit of a fat git but the seat should be able to take more than 15 stone surely.

Went up to scrappy tonight I was gutted their was a Bravo Same colour as myn, SX model like myn, Same colour interior. Nothing has been took off it accept for the drivers seat which has gone.

Had the spray guards off it though, and on my way home it hit me I'm pretty sure it's got coded door miriors. So if it has and im not imagining things I'll have them off it the weekend.

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

No luck mate, sure one will turn up soon, i'd imagine that you could keep the seat and replace the frame. See if your old one come's off, and also see if your passenger seat fits as you could use it in the meantime.

Can't use the passenger seat mate because of the seat belt buckle.

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

at least its an SX so you've got a good chance of finding one the same colour in good condition, an HLX seat is far rarer, and if it was an HGT you'd be buggered.

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

Isn't it possible to have someone weld the broken frame?

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

welding is classed as "skill labour" in the uk, so that means it costs more than gold. which is a shame because welding is one of the few things i cant really do myself, and even though i know a few welders, they still charge plumbers rates.

when i lived in dubai you could drive around certain parts of the city and pick up labourers with their own tools, including welders, and pay them by the hour or day to do whatever you wanted at rates so cheap it would make me feel guilty. so different to the uk

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

The seat that is in the car is going to be bodged. I am going to get two strips of steel and strap it by riviting the steel to the frame. and it is going to become the X-Box chair.

I would not risk bodging it and using it in the car because it does not lock into place when I brake. I have to tense my arms and hold the wheel to stop me from sliding forward.

I have to strech my clutch foot that far my knee is hurting I can't wait until tomorrow. Got the old mans Octavia Estate and I'm going scrap yard hunting.

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

No luck with seat as of yet.

Next week Im going to my favourite breakers in birmingham Fiat base.

It's like a supermarket. they brak the cars up and put them on shlves. You then go round and oick what you want.

I wished I had gone yesterday but I could not be bothered with the M6, and I refuse to pay to use the M6 Toll. Especially when it's an 8 return trip to use it. Yes I am a tight git

Re: Drivers Seat is no more.

Yeah I will do.

im going to build a a frame out of MDF not very high because i like to sit on the floor when I'm gaming. Im going to cover it with the carpet that you cover subs in. Going to put a holder for a can in.

I will let you know and post some pics when it's done.
