    well guys i took the plunge at the weekend to take out the seat to see why i had no slide, i had found that on the lower inner side of the passenger seat there was what i believe the cable that allows the seat to slide had snapped and the wire cable had frayed. so i took the seat out to see if there was anything i can do but no luck the cable passes through the circular black thing that is wrapped in foam at the bottom of the seat in the picture

    so i was just wondering if anybody knows how this could be fixed other than getting another seat or if it would be better just to keep using the slider arm which is a pain in the arse!!!

    thanks matt
