    Does anyone else have the front edge of the bottom seat cushion detaching from the support frame? If you reach under your legs to the bottom of the front edge of the seat, it should be clipped onto the metal frame with a plastic bracket that runs the width of the seat. I recently had my driver seat replaced completely partly due to this and partly due to a lumbar support failure. I didn't ask for a complete replacement but didn't argue against it either. To my dismay, the new seat is exhibited the exact same problem after one week of driving. It leaves the front of the seat detached from the frame. Not sure if it is a real long term problem, but surely not as it should be. I think next steps will involve some glue. A bit patchwork but may work.
