    Woah. My seat is acting funny...I think!

    So either I JUST noticed it or it's supposed to be this way, but my driver's seat sort of "moves" when I do the hump-the-steering-wheel action. The passenger side has no movement at all when I rock back and forth, but the driver's one does. I had taken it in last year for that recall on the seat, but I don't know if this is anything to do with it. Can someone here tell me if their driver's seat moves at all. It's only a tiny amount, but it's there, and it bothers me more not knowing if it's normal. The actual metal "runners" at the bottom don't move, - it's literally the seat bottom that moves.

    Thanks all.

    My problem is that I don't know WHERE to tighten it.

    Anyone want to be a good Samaritan and take a picture?

    Basically, it's where you sit in your driver's seat, and hold on to the steering wheel. Then you kind of "move back and forth" quickly, and there's a movement in the seat. It's really kind of disconcerting. If I knew it was normal, I wouldn't be half as bothered.

    Yeah I really don't know where where to look to tighten mine up either. I'll mess around with it during my free time tomorrow and see if I can find anything. And IDAFC21 you jerk! I still wish I had some of those seats! How are they holding up these days? I still want to pick some up when I get some more money.
