So this weekend I'm giving my '85 a good Spring cleaning. While vacuuming, I lifted a little bit on the drivers seat and it came up! Not the frame of the seat, but the cover and padding. It's almost like the seat was recovered and reinstalled but not reattached to the frame. Is this a big deal? Is it difficult to fix? Sheesh. It's always something... ;)

My '89 seats are attached to by a spring clip to the "shell". This isn't illustrated in the FSM.
(I didn't know about that until I had someone fix a worn patch and saw him press down on the wire "clip" and just pull the seat straight up and off.)
See if there is a wire "loop" on the front of the cushion. If there is then it must be pulled over the "shell's" bottom until it snaps in place.
Note this is not easy to do - you need strong arms because you're bent over and reaching out, no leverage,
HTH LOL

You're right. There was a wire that hooked around the shell on the bottom and it was kind of a bugger to do. Thanks for your help! :)
