Question about Bowflex Selecttech 5.1 Adjustable Dumbbell Bench

Wrong seat pad with 5.1 bench

We ordered the Bowflex 5.1 bench from Sports Authority. When it arrived, my wife and I tried to assemble it. we are both mechanical engineers, home DIYers, motorbike mechanics, etc.... we know what we're doing. I'm sure the order was drop shipped from Boxflex. the seat pad was a different color, different material with different colored stitching. The mounting holes do not match and we could not finish assembly or use our new bench. We did some research on the Bowflex website and it appears the seat pad is for their Revolution XP home gym. Now we're on the phone with Sports Authority and Bowflex to resolve the issue. Last thing we want.... ship the unit back. It's about 70 lbs. ALL WE NEED IS THE RIGHT SEAT PAD....

They (Bowflex) should replace the seat with the proper seat. Sometimes a picture can go a long ways. That provided they should ship out the correct seat.

Disassemble bowflex treadclimber

There are several versions of this unit. If you do not have the manual for this model, I recommend performing a search and downloading it. The manual is an assembly manual. It details the parts. It also has a section on getting the treadclimber ready for transport. Rather than trying to tear down the treadclimber and reducing it to its pre-assembly form, I suggest you examine the transport section.
