Default Driver's seat issue

Hey guys,

Pretty sure the lumbar support in my 2009 MB Mondeo just capped itself. Loud clunk like something broke, lumbar support let go, and now I can feel the springs through the back of the seat.

My question is if this poses any structural issues for the seat itself? If so, how hard is it to change the seat out? My car is a Zetec so it has airbags in the seat. I've changed seats out in Falcons before, but no electronics in an AU Falcon's seats...

Cheers guys!

It shouldn't cause structural issues for the seat. Seat change out is much the same as for anything else except for the electrical discharge for the airbag.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply mate... Bigger fish to fry now though... Car died on the way to work this morning... P010F Air Flow sensor fault... It's currently sitting at John McGrath Ford in Phillip ACT doing a very expensive paperweight impression! Yey!

Angry Re: Driver's seat issue

This happened to me this week (2010 MB XR5). The seat wire has punched a hole thru the rear cover. Yippee (not) !!
Presume a professional trimmer fix required.

RussellW - what do you mean by else except for the electrical discharge for the airbag.
? Will the airbag go off if I remove the seat myself ?

Exactly the same issue Allan... My daughter has since cut herself on the protruding spring... Definitely going to have to fix it, would love an answer to that question too!
