    its the grey bump strip on the outside of the door at the bottom and the seats are the recaros i cant get iton the back using the drivers one as it wont tilt forward when the little handle is pulled and my wife has broken the other side handle but i realise there are 2 just wondering the best way to replace the handle and also reconnect the other seat so i can gain access to the rear seats via the drivers side

    the strip is the side diffuser and is attatched by M4 bolts but if its dropped off it could mean the seating for the bolts have corroded away and unless you dry it out and epoxy resin some nuts in the right location new one will be required....pm pjmspeedy for a price

    not sure what you mean with the seat Stephen

    right the seats.......obviously with the s3 being 3 door you have to tilt and slide the seats forward for the rear passengers to get in and out.......my drivers side is not doing this at all you lift the catch and nothing happens......on my passenger seat my wife has broken the small catch.....i realise i can use the one on the other side of the seat but wanting to replace it and also sort the drivers seat........does this help???? and cheers for the diffuser answer

    the handle at the front should move the seat or the levers.
