Question type: Maintenance & Repair

been thinking of just replacing seat; but may try to repair can't seem to get at joint without ripping up upholstery

3 Answers

YES....these are have to take the seat completely out....undo the upholstery clips and take the skin off of there....WELD in fact weld "scab plates" over the cracked sections....I personally HAVE done this for THIS not impossible, but perhaps a bit sure to have plenty of time....these fatigue cracks will get worse and worse until they are mended~

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

admittedly did not take the WHOLE skin off, just enough to grind and weld the fatigue areas~

no one wants to show the "bones" of the's like the best kept secret....or perhaps they are ashamed of their alloys~
