    Has anyone posted a 'how to' on replacement of the driver seat bottom cushion spring set? The only youtube videos I've found are talking about the cushion foam or the cover. Any help or advise would be most appreciated! :waytogo:

    That would be a new seat situation or junkyard.

    SYKRAMMAN: I have the spring set. Got it off ebay. The seat foam and cover are ok. Plan to reuse them again. Was wondering if anyone had a shortcut to install the springs without dismantling the cushion from the seat frame. Thanks!

    Unfortunately im pretty sure you're going to have to dismantle it. What'd you pay for those forums if you don't mind me askingm

    With the seat out, the tracks unbolt from the frame. At that point, the fabric and foam simply unclips from the frame - no hog rings, etc. At that point it is easy to replace springs. You may not have broken springs - there are wires the springs attach to that could also be broken.

    dapepper9: The spring set was about $20 or so. I got it awhile back.

    Evilspirit is right on his post, on mine the wires were broke 2 the end of them (i had about 6 of them broke) I cheated and took some wire like the originals and doubled them up and wrapped them like a turnbuckle) worked out ok.....
