Seat cover as explained in a previous post, the piping has made a bid for freedom and this spoils an otherwise tidy interior so I had a chat with one of our sewing ladies at work and explained what I wanted done to repair my cover and she has agreed to sew it back up for me This Friday so this evening I have stripped the squab cover off the seat in preparation to make the repair piece.
Removal of the cover was quite straight forward once the backboard and headrest was removed, however once the backboard was removed it became quite clear why the lumber function was always a bit weak and would not always stay in place.
The runners that are a type of guide were broken and must have been for a long time.
Broken lumber runners. These are the white parts to the left and right of the picture.
Seat piping that needs the repair.
Once the cover was removed it became apparent that the foam bolster beneath the cover needs a little repair too.
Hopefully on Friday I can reveal the repair and the refitted cover.
Sequence to finish the re-birth.
Refit seat cover Friday.
Time permitting this Saturday, new tyres and bleed the brakes.
Need to polish and wax the paint work as this still needs to be done before it leaves the stable. For me it needs to look good for the MOT
Oil and filter change as all the short starting in and out of the garage has pobably contaminated he oil with fuel ashed down the bores and this will probaly affect the emissions.
Lastly, fingers crossed enjoy
