    Drivers seat

    Hi Almost forgot about this. This is the material I made the seat runner tensioner out of. It is an electricians draw tape for conduit. I am aSparky by trade. Kinda lucky really because this was due to be thrown out as it was going rusty in the back of the garage. It is made of spring steel and if you are not careful it will snap when trying to put a sharp bend into it. This was the first try at making the tensioner. Unfortunatly I didn't make it long enough, I forgot about having to bend the other end up once fitted. But I,m sure you get the idea.

    I have had my seats again today after the peaks run and I have managed to make some. Details later!! First impressions are that it works. The seat is nice and tight now.

    Hi Andy I have had the seat out today and there is a lot of play between the two halves of the runners so I have slotted them back in while I contemplated my next action. and that I want to get out in the car this weekend. Then it rained so I did some more research. After a fair amount of googling I found this. Item number 14 isnt on my car because it is a later modification from lotus. Here is the modification Its from this thread https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/92601-exige-s3-loose-drivers-seat-thread/#comments If you go to about page 6 on the topic you will find reference to it. and according to the people who have fitted them it works a treat. Many have had them fitted under warranty. bit late for me ☹️ Trouble is its they are £41.94 from here. https://www.sjsportscars.com/parts-and-accessories/A142V0001K.htm Even more through the lotus parts site Deroure Just wondering if its worth trying to make a pair. Cheers Andy

    Thanks for the reply I have had chance to put my ass into the seat this morning. I cant seem to replicate the problem just by sitting in the seat and moving it back and forth so it might not have been engaged properly in the past. However there is a certain amount of play when moving my weight about in the seat. when I test the seat with no weight in it there is also play, feeling like it rocks a little front to back across the diaganal. Is this normal?? or should the seat be tight in all positions? All visible bolts and screws etc are tight.

    Hi Any info on the cause and hopefully fix on the following. When I hit the brakes hard the drivers seat twists a little. The outer side seems to be fixed in firm but the inner side seems to run forward twisting slightly as it does. Easy fix ?? Oh I have an Elise S3 and i do move the seat back when getting in and out Andy
