New Seat Retaining Clips - Cures Seat Rattle/Movement.


Recommended Posts

A while ago I asked about replacing the small plastic clips that are at the front of the seat-rails and that hold down the bar on the front of the seat base and was told that these were not a part that Land Rover would sell independent of the seat base which are about 190GBP each and will just break again. After getting really tired of the seat base shifting around every time I moved I designed a replacement retainer that uses a detent spring and ball to hold the seat firmly in place.

The retainers are machined from Delrin and and take about 10 minutes to install and should out-last the vehicle, the initial batch are all hand-machined and I'm re-selling them at cost to anyone who would like to solve the issue once and for all. I'm hoping I'm not the only one out there who found the issue annoying.

I've attached photos of the original LR part showing how they break as well as the replacement retainer and a close-up of the mechanism (or as good as I could get at the time without a macro-lens).

Because they're hand-machined they're not as cheap as I'd like, but still you can do a seat for 40GBP. If you're interested send me a PM with your address and we can sort out shipping. The first bigger batch should go out next week.
