You need to unbolt the seat from the floor, then put a large piece of sheet metal or really large flat washers (at least 3" diameter) under the legs to distribute the weight more evenly. How you repair the one that broke is largely dependent on if the leg broke or if it went through the floor. you can replace the seat with one from a scrapyard or if you know someone who can weld it without setting it on fire, (don't attempt to weld with the seat in the car) do that. if the leg went through the floor, then just use a large plate underneath to reinforce it and replace the bolt if necessary. Usually the bolts are case hardened steel so if one broke it may be easier to cut them all off and re-drill new holes just in front or behind the old ones. I'd only do that if the old one cannot be drilled and re-tapped though. Always use grade eight bolts to replace hardware. They will prevent the seat from tearing from the floor in an accident.

Removing front driver seat


Hi Edward, if you are only changing the drivers seat with a new one, here's how its done. You'll need to move the seat reward all the way, then remove the 2 bolts holding the seat to the floor, then move the seat all the way forward and remove the 2 bolts holding the seat to the floor. NEXT, tilt the seat up and unplug all connectors that run from the floor to the seat. Thats it, reinstall your new seat in reverse procedure. Hope this helps, have an awesome day Edward.

The driver's seat in my 1989 wagoneer is barely staying connected to the metal down below. you barely push up on it and it's up ontop of the steering wheel. a friend says to weld it in place to the floor....


No this cant be done, there two diffrent seats, i think the best thing is to try and weld it, remove the seat and see if its the track that broke or the floor itself, i just repair one with power seats and the track had a couple of frozen arms and thats what caused seat track to break. i remove the seat and remove track from seat freed frozen linkage arms and welded track all worked out good, hope this helps.

Drivers seat broke loose need to remove to fix


hello there:
for removal of the front seat you will have four bolt that go threw the floor board they will be under the carpet and more than likely will take a large tourq driver to get them out you may also have electrical connection under the seat if you electric seats so make sure you unplug the wire before removing the seat this will give you access to the part that needs to be replaced the bolt should be able to found by lifting the carpet right at the seat mounts in the front and the rear should be visible hope this helps you out sincerely D.Jones

Should just be 4 bolts holding the seat to the floor, and unplug the wires. Only way to fix it is weld it, or get a different base from an auto wrecker.

Driver Pwr Seat - Half Works & Vanity Mirro


I had the same problem with my 2005 malibu vehicle. To find out the welds they use under the seat to connect the steel brackets are not that strong and snap leaving the seat at an angle position.The best bet is to look under the seat at the side thats angled down and look for a long metal pipe with a U shape it might look a little rusted.If this is so you need to find a welder to reweld the two pieces.
