Sunken Seat
#1
Wink 
Drivers seat on my 2011 XTR has developed a fault. The seat base padding has flattened out and the seat back makes a clicking noise when I first sit on the seat. I am of average weight ( ? ) :eek: and expected it to last longer than this. Booked in for a verdict at main dealer next week. Anyone else had this problem, and was it covered by the warranty ?.Confusedcratch:

I think it should be a warranty job as its a potential safety hazard.

Dad used to repair the seat on the A35 by threading a web of baler twine underneath it.
It must have been down to the last thread one day because we went over a bump and he disappeared down into the frame.....

Definate safety issue as modern seats are designed to protect you in various ways during an RTC (sorry, we are not allowed to call it an 'accident' anymore).
Don't take any crap off the dealer; doesn't sound like 'wear and tear', sounds like a fault in the manufacturing process to me? Seats should last more than a couple of years!

Went to local dealer today but it may need a full day to strip seat etc. Booked in next month to get seat stripped down to check problem and report back to Citroen UK, so hope tthat repair will be covered by warranty. Confusedalut:
