My driver side power seat has some movement to it when I corner. I have a hard time pinpointing where the movement is when I stick my head under the seat. Are there adjustments that can be made to firm it up again? Are there glides that can be replaced? Any ideas?

Thanks

How does it move?
Tilt?
Slide?
Twist?

Turning left? Turning Right? Does it matter?

Left or right. I hear a "clunk" from the seat. I think it's sliding right and left.

sounds like you need to replace the seat track assembly. It's a complex process if you try it yourself but with a little time and patience you could do it.

Thanks for the input. Am I going to have to buy the parts at the dealer, or is there a less expensive alternative?
