Stool seats are tough to replace because it is difficult to duplicate the large angled holes for the legs. It is usually easier to repair them by screwing another seat of solid wood atop the old seat, so long as the old seat is still glued well to the legs. Install screws through the bottom of the old seat, and check the screw length beforehand to avoid points coming through.

The window on drivers side has leak in the centre of the rubber, also the window doesnt look flush,

sounds like someone tried to pry your window and punctured the seal. You can purchase the seal on Ebay and replace this seal yourself. You can also repair the crooked window yourself also but you will have to remove the door panel to do this. Just the other day I was watching a video on Youtube about this exact seal - Removal and Replacement.

Broken or loose front seat

Hello Jerry, There are several ways for your seat to mess up. What you may find is the frame of the seat is splitting due to metal fatique.

The metal frame is a welded part with a sheetmetal base. Over time this base can develop cracks which spread as the metal strains to hold together. This is a more difficult repair to make, sometimes it is more trouble to fix than getting another seat from a Salvage yard. In either case, the seat will be easier to work on if it is removed from the car.

An automotive upholstery shop is the type of repair shop which can do the repair. The big problem is having an air rachet small enough to unbolt the seat mounts through the floor. There will be rust, but most penetrating oils smell and will ruin the inside of your car if used.

You can find a replacement seat in Salvage yards by going to which will put a Nationwide search for your seat to match the color. Or you can use an Upholstery shop and have them strip the upholstery and switch the frame.

There may be a chance of getting a new seat frame, but it will be expensive.

Now you may have another problem which would be in the gear and motor for an electric seat track. The gears can wear out and then the seat will not be steady in its track. I would bet that if you look under the seat and pull up on a front corner, that the seat will rock from a fractured seat plate under the upholstery.

I once fixed my Drivers seat with a longer bolt and a short piece of tailpipe. I drilled a bolt hole into the pipe and secured the pipe against the frame with the bolt. I did not have to remove the seat to do this. But if the seat were taken off, someone could probably weld a heavy piece of metal on the weak side. My electric seat worked fine with the added metal in place. Again, you may get into something being more trouble than it was worth.

I hope my solution was helpful.

If you have bucket seats or a split bench, reach under the seat and you will feel the plug that needs to be unplugged. Sometimes it's easier to unbolt the 4 bolts and tilting the seat backwards to see the plug better.

Remove rear seat impala2007

To remove the rear seat, pull up on the front of the seat bottom, it should be hooked in place by spring type clips. After you get the front edge up, pull out the seat. This should expose the bolts/screws that hold the seat back in. Look below and there should be a couple of screws holding the seatback to the car body. Remove these and then you can pull the seat back out of the car.

Yes you can.Check your local salvage yard for either tahoe or yukon split bench seats.They will bolt right in with no drilling required.You might have to pull back the carpet to locate the holes.
