    My 221 drivers seat has recently started to move fractionally when there is forward or backward force on it. Its minimal, almost a click back and forward, but sometimes noticeable.

    I have had a quick look under the seat whilst trying to rock the seat base back and forward. I can see that something under there is giving a little play to allow this. Has this problem happened to anyone else? What was the remedy? I have read about a new seat rail, but was wondering if something could be packed, or tightened?

    Many thanks

    I would check all the bolts for tightness first
