I just got back in from washing my car and vacuum the interior and noticed that my seat foam has once again separated causing the metal frame to protrude into my side.

I'm going to go to the dealership again tomorrow since I have the day off, this is going to piss me off if this is just going to keep happening every 15k-20k miles. I didn't ask them what they did last time, if they just repaired the stock foam or replaced it, but this time I'm going to make sure they replace it. I'm also going to ask about the bottom cover, why it's sagging and stretching, maybe i'll get a new seat out of it. Probably not but its worth a shot.

What's really strange is that it's been the passenger side of my driver seat both times. Not the side that seems more probable and common from getting in and out of the car. And no, I'm not a big guy by any means, about 6 ft. 160 lbs. and I don't drive with a gangster lean lol. It doesn't make sense as to why the inside part of the seat is failing but the side closest to the drivers door is still perfect.

FWIW....here's a link to my thread concerning my driver seat-back fix. The foam glue I used and other techniques seem to be holding up well....going on two years later.

what kind of glue did you use bluefront? i was just going to go the the craft store and ask there advice but if your's has lasted longer then just straight foam it must be pretty good.
