Quick fix for broken seat support

Recommended Posts

Driving along, enjoying the Disco, a sudden snap noise and my view drops by 20mm. Back at the office I confirmed my suspicion, the support mat snapped.

This morning I removed the seat and sub frame to see what can be done.

28 cable ties later, and the seat is as firm as new, my 93 kg permitted. :)

Nice one - a common problem!

I think there's somebody selling an aftermarket rubber / plastic replacement now, but it might cost more than it's worth to get it to SA?

If the cable ties fail I will either replace the mat with a new one/after market one, or rope a mat, or use riempies (ox hide cut into thin strips). Many simply put a board in place of the mat, but that removes some of the flexibility of the seat.

I did a short test drive this evening, and the seat really sits well, support is good and no stress on my lower back.
