Seat broken- anyone else have this problem?

So I get in my car to leave town after Somernights Powercrusie & notice the side of my seat does not look right. Once we get home closer inspection reveals a plastic tab on the inside of the plastic side piece upon which the seat adjusters are attached, is broken. This tab appears to have been hooked onto a metal piece on the seat holding the plastic part sungly against the side of the cloth seat. (see pics - sorry close up pics would not focus well. I include a pic of the other seat to show the difference) I'm guessing when I was not looking some (insert ugly word) car show attendee got in my car & upon getting out some part of their clothing got hooked on that plastic piece pulling & breaking it. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!! Okay, that makes me mad, but it is under warranty so I'll just get it fixed. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Can just the side piece be replaced or will I have to have a new seat?

I tried to look to see if there was a recall or a TSB about it but could not find anything. I will put a response on that thread to see if I get any further info.

This happened on the car I traded for my Camaro (07 Cadillac STS-V) it sat low too only happened when somebody rolled/slides off the seat to get out instead of lifting themselves up off the seat to get out the plastic side can't handle the pressure of weight I guess and the plastic trim piece would pop out I would look after anyone rode passenger side after they got out sometimes it happened some not I had to pop it back in it was very frustrating

Seat

I have 2010 and the drivers seat did the same last year and they said they fixed it. It is now the same the plastic keeper on the front of the seat which holds the entire front of the seat material to the frame comes loose. Took it in today I was told that there was a TSB for the seats but I cant find one out there. Does anyone know of the TSB? I dont want them hod ringing it to the frame or some stupid fix.

Funny this happened to my seat this week. What part did you ask for? Will the warranty cover it?

I'm sorry Rabidd but I looked through my resources and did not see a TSB on this issue. If you are concerned with how they fix your vehicle I would suggest looking it over to make sure it is to your satisfaction. I'm sorry to see that you, among others, have this issue. I hope they're able to take care of you to your requirements the first time.

Had it replaced on my car.

3000 miles later, it's broken again. :(

Hey I was just curious what the status was on your seat. I am having the same issue. Did warranty cover this or was this an out of pocket expense?

That happened to mine. My seat was stuck in the highest position and my head was touching the roof almost. And the worst part is, I was heading out of town for the Camaros for Heros event (6 hour drive). I had to wait until I got back home to get it fixed....miserable.

There is an upgraded part. If you feel inside the rounded upper back part of the plastic piece, it is hollow. The new part they put on has a lining in it of what feels like a semi hard rubber to reinforce it. It can be seen barely sticking past the inside edge toward the seat. I will try to get some pics tomorrow but it will be difficult to capture. They apparently will automatically send this part when they order the replacement since my dealership service department had not heard about an upgraded part. I showed them the difference. Yes it was covered under warranty, no cost to me. Now, better than new.

I saw that BlackBeauty had some kind of bar that goes between the door and the frame, which I would guess allows you to "lock" the door in the open position (for a car show). That way if someone moved the bar or opened the door enough to get in, the alarm would sound. That is my guess on the bar, you would have to ask BB. Glad you are getting it fixed. Another option is windows down, door locked. Show patrons can look in, but not get in without the alarm triggering. My .02.

The bar is for car shows. Not only does it prevent someone from fitting through the opening while still being able to view but it allows cars to park closer together without dings. I doubt if it alarms. I have seen some with cables. Simpler and as effective. Get the door to the first stop and you should be good.

Had the same thing happen to Driver's seat. Issue is, cheap plastic piece that holds molding snug to seat. Mine unfortunately broke after my warranty ran out and I'm sure their repair would eventually break as well. Can't understand why on the passenger seat, this piece is metal?? Headed to Lowe's for some hardware and JB Weld and repaired on my own. So far is holding up very well.
