Seat base bolster support bars...when did they go bye-bye?

In the Focus up to at least the '02 model year, there were metal support bars for the seat bolsters welded to the seat pan. These apparently have a habit of breaking at the weld and poking a hole in your seat cover!

By '05 these bars were gone, and a solid foam pad was fitted to the seats instead of one scooped out to allow for this bar. Does anyone know when these bars disappeared?

Reason I ask is that I don't feel them in my '03 seats, but they could be there, buried in the foam too deeply, and I don't really want to have to pull my seat apart just to check.
