How do you make the "whoopy cushion" sound go away on Omnia sectionials?
I am looking to purchase the Omnia Paramount Sectional. Every store i visit and sit on the couch, there is a whooshing, quacking, or whoopy cushion sound on every seat. Makes me not want to buy it unless there is a fix

Steering column shroud is the plastic cover just below the steering wheel that tidies away from sight the switches, wiring and connectors beneath.
Most shrouds are sectional and held in place with a combination of partially hidden screws, disguised screws and internal clips. Some shrouds aren't sectional and the steering wheel must be removed as a first step towards removal.
Please be aware modern steering wheels have the airbag and beneath the shroud is the wiring and connections. It isn't wise to fool around in there unless you know what you are doing.
Look on the bottom of the lower cushion, where it meets the floor. If you don't see 2 screws or bolts (one on each side of cushion) there, then there are clips that the bottom cushion uses to fit tight into the floor. To remove the bottom cushion, you shove it towards the rear and then lift up and out of where the clips hold it fast. Sometimes you really have to push the cushion hard towards the rear to get the clips loose. Then you lift up the bottom cushion and remove it. Now you can remove the upper portion of the seat. Usually there are 2 bolts down at the bottom of the upper cushion. Remove those and the upper portion can be removed. If there are no bolts on the bottom of the upper cushion, then you just lift it up and out of slots that held it fast.
Do the bottom cushion first.

To reinstall the rear seat cushion:
1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear - locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly
routed and that no portion of any safety belt is
trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat
cushion is secured.
The battery and main fuse blocks are located
under the rear seat cushion. The battery's ground
terminal and some relay wires are exposed.
To help avoid damage to the battery and wires,
be careful when removing or reinstalling the seat
cushion. Do not remove covers from covered
parts. Do not store anything under the seat, as
objects could touch exposed wires and cause
At least 3 ways the bottom cushions are held in place: some have bolts at the bottom of the cushion, one on each side-when bolts are removed, bottom cushion pulls out. Some have plastic clips on the bottom of the cushion, pressed straight down and into holes in the frame. To remove pull up on the bottom cushion. The other way of holding is a metal bar or rod (about 2 inches long) that is on the bottom of the cushion, close to the front of cushion. This bar fits into a metal clip that juts up from the frame. To remove this kind, you have to push hard on the front of the cushion, so the bar or rod lifts out of the clip. The rod only has to move backward about an inch and it will lift out of the clip. There are only two clips- each is about 1 foot from the ends of the cushion. These types of holds are the most difficult to get to move. Sometimes you need to put your knee against the bottom cushion and give it a hard shove backward. You will know when you have one side loose. That side can then be lifted up a bit. Then do the other side.
First check for 2 bolts at the bottom of the back seat cushion. When you have the bottom seat out, you can remove the top cushion (the backrest) out if you want to. The backrest usually has two bolts at the bottom. Remove them, and lift up the backrest and out. If no bolts at the bottom, just grab the cushion and lift up and then away.
The bottom cushion needs to be removed first...look where the bottom of the cushion touches the floor board...you should find 1 bolt on each side that need to be removed...lift bottom cushion out...this will expose 1 bolt on each side that need to be removed for the top cushion...this should allow access to the trunk and/or speakers...:)
i have owned two 1994 grand prix's and both developed the same problem you are refering to. i have to agree with the last solution, if the rear is sitting lower, it's time to look at your rear struts. BUT... the GM used a fibreglass monoleaf transverse spring in the rear and the fibre glass spring is suppose to sit on a nylon cushion on both knucles. on both of my vehicles i had the nylon cushion fall or get knocked out. the parts cost about $20.00cdn and can easily be installed without removong the spring. In both cases it solved the sound of metal on metal rubing sound. I also changed the rear struts soon after i replaced the cushions because i noticed they were worn.
Try disconnecting the air intake and see what happens (that won't harm the engine). I don't believe it will harm the engine w/ this noise, although it might be a little embarrassing. They have been using corn to make gasoline, I wonder if they started using beans? Let me know the results and any new clues you may think of or the truck may develop. Have someone under the hood when u shut truck off to see it they can figure exactly where it's coming from. Beano in the gas tank? No, No, don't do that. countrycurt0
