Aceman, I'm not sure if this is something you can help with but I purchased a set of the nylon bushes from you about 12-18 months ago and only just got around the fitting them.

As it turned out, my original BMW bushes looked absolutely fine but I replaced them for peace of mind. The nylon ones are now in and the seat still rocks as it did before, I can only assume the problem is somewhere else within the mechanism but I can't see how this could be so as everything seems tight... any ideas?

That's a little bizzare but then again the fact that you say the original bushes looked ok does seem to point to something else in the mechanism. Without looking myself I can't think what else could cause it off the top of my head but I still have to do my ///M in the next few weeks so when I do I will keep mind of your problem and see if I can figure out what may be causing them to still rock. Just a thought when you fitted the bushes did you make sure they were a snug fit (ie. did you have to sand them down slightly to fit)??


I will be interested to know though if you find the answer beforehand.

The original bushes for both seats looked absolutely fine, pretty much as new. The passenger seat is fine, no rocking. The drivers seat has always rocked and still does.

When I have the time, I may have to remove it again and find out what's causing the problem! The nylon bushes were snuggly fitted, especially on the drivers seat where I really packed them in!

Obviously not the bushes then that are the cause of the rocking, as you say further investigation required. :(

Cheers aceman, got my bushes in Spain in just over a week. Took about an hour to do drivers side using earthworm jim's guide (piece of p##s!) didn't disconnect the battery and had the radio on (reset the airbag light with resetting tool bought on e-bay for about 20 quid!) the original crappy rubber ones have lasted for almost 15 years, so these nylon ones should last forever! Sanded the first ones down by hand, took about 15 mins and thought sod that and got the belt sander out and did the second two in about 2 mins! Cheers again!

Struggling with seat rails

I thought I would replace my seat bushes today. Easy I thought having read all the posts here but I am having a problem. I have the seat out and have removed the 2x T25 bolts from the runners and am stuck on removing the T50 before withdrawing the threaded rod section. I can access the T50 bolt from point 1 but once undone I cannot remove it. I presume I need to undo the T50 from point 2 but I cannot slide the rail down that far as it hits a stop point. Can anyone who has carried out this repair offer me a pointer? Please :head:

Had the same problem when I did mine until I realised that you needed to move the seats so that the bolt head is exposed. If you look at the KB thread, you can see if comes clear of the cover: http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopi ... 18&t=30402

Ah yes, thanks for that Robert. I reconnected the wiring and moved the seat so I could access the big bolt. Half done the job now so quite pleased but the electric seat isn't working so I can't tighten the rear seat bolts to the floor so another trawl through the forum ensues. The untouched passenger seat is still working so I might sit in that one for a while :oops:

Hi,

Not sure on your location but I know Munich Legends will install these for you if you give them a ring. To be honest any decent indy will be able to fit them for you given the info on how to fit them.

My local garage charged £100 a seat to fit Ian's bushes to my 2.8. Just did the driver's side myself on the M (well a little help from the teenage daughter). The original "bush" is not really a bush at all simply a one pice rubber basket around the threaded piece. Looks to me as if the rubber reacts in some way with the grease on the trolley bit then breaks down easily under stress. Actually quite an enjoyable job even if I did only find £1.55 and a Crunchie wrapper under the seat so not quite in profit.
The difference in the way the car drives is amazing for such a small thing that has not actually altered the engine, suspension or brakes. Anyone who is
half thinking about it should just go for it.

Any chance you can bring a few M badge refurb kits down to Silverstone aswell. I will be needing some for after I get my paintwork done next month. Meant to send for them after Beamish but forgot. I'm at Holiday Inn Friday & Saturday night so should be able to see you at some point over the weekend.
