Both of the front seats of my car are original, and the back parts are somewhat loose (you can move the back of the car slightly by pusing forward with your hand). It would ppear the mecanism that retains the back of the seat is used up.As well, the passenger side seat moves forward and backward a bit, as well as a little left and right on its tracks when I slow down rapidly, or take sharp turns. Is it possible to repair these seats myself, or must I consider changing them because of high usage ? The leather on both seats is good with only a slight tear. If I could do it myself, I would rather not change the seats at this point as they are still looking very good and are comfortable. I have closely examined the tracks on the passenger seat, and they seem ok. I can not see nor feel any loose bolts under the seat. I have reviewed tech articles on the subject, but those that mentions this type of problem all attribute it to the bolts of the tracks being loose. It does not appear to be the case here. Could the loose bolts be inside the part ot the seat where we actually sit. Any suggestions please on how to undertake this repair ?
