Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Yes, I think so. My power seat moved forward and back no problem, but there was always movement in the sear. Turns out part of the frame actually sheared between the two rivets they used to connect the frame (my Pilot has never been in an accident). I took the part out, had it welded, drilled the rivets out and replaced them with bolts. I will be contacting Honda to let them know and ask for replacement. I may send pics to the NTSB just in case this is a larger problem that they should be aware of.
