Fix rusted broken small spring under passenger seat it slides back and forth


go to your local hardware store, parts store and buy an expansion spring. cut it to length and bend a new tab on the cut end . fit it to the lever and it will work a treat. Most auto seats have the spring but you will have to upend a seat to get it out as it costs too much for the junk yards to do it.

The rear clip for the driver side window broke and bent the regulator arm pretty bad. i took it to the shop and they wanted like 450 to fix it. they said the price was mostly in the parts, but i wanted...


I had a similar problem. Both of my clips broke this past winter when the window froze shut. I bought the clips and recommended adhesive but could never get the window to stay adhered to the clips for very long. I purchased a purchased a new, after-market window on Ebay for $65 dollars and put it in myself. Body shops I talked with will not deal with replacing clips because of the problem with adhesives not holding for more than a week or two. Find you a window that has the clips installed during production. It will save you a lot of headache.

Drivers seat


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.

Trunk will not stay open on its own


You can go to a auto dismantler and buy a used one that will be cheeper than a new one. They are not too hard to install if you are strong and not afraid to climb into the trunk. Requires two people to do it. one to hold the trunk up all the way and the other to get in and snap the spring back into place. You place the spring end in position first then locate the torsion end and pushup and back and snap it in place. The only hitch is if the spring didn't break and the bracket itself did, then you will need a body shop to reweld and repair the mounting bracket. Option #2, get a stick and use it to prop up and hold the trunk open when you are using it. Good Luck, RAC

Need assembly diagram or instructions for front seats in a 1979 Fireberd


I totally have just finished redoing mine. It turned out great. The reason I did this myself, I couldnot find seats and was told not parts are available. The driver side was broke down and I put new springs in and painted the seat frame, reused the old foam (did some minor repair to the foam) and put new leather on, (available from NPD.com) if you want me to give details my email is (bluesryder@live.com)
