Greeting from Suffolk

After owning a Yaris verso for 2 years I have now added an x reg SR to the fleet. I have many questions.... Nice to meet you all.

welcome Olly

Thanks.

When I got my verso the drivers seat felt like it was trying to throw me forwards like those benches designed to stop homeless people sleeping on them. The Yaris was exactly the same so the day I bought it I also ordered some longer m10x1.25 bolts and turned some 20mm ally spacers on my lathe resulting in a much improved seating position

Hi Olly is seat flexing when you try pushing it forward or backwards

try the seat low down ie cushion then high up near headrest but not at the headrest.

Ma need extra support under the runners as the bracket you have lifted may be flexing.

Seems to be ok, no more floppy than before, when I have more time I'll machine some blocks that grab those pins and hook over the cross member piece of the car if that makes sense.

Im not sure it needs the extra strength when you see the tiny bit of tin the seat belt receiver bolts to but better to be safe I guess.

Hi Olly. There may only be a small amount of tin the seat belt receiver bolts to, by the continual flexing may cause metal fatigue and the metal may shear when you least expect it. It might be worth machining your blocks sooner rather than later

Right you are, I shall get on it this weekend. It's a shame there's not a way to drop the seat base down at the back, rather than raising the front, it would be a lot better that way round.

Another option is an angled "ramp" bracket similar to the image attached. Something like this may help.

I prefere doing somthink tempory & quick just to prove it,s going to be satifactory.

Then go down the route of a permiment fix.

I shall take some measurements of everywhere the runners originally contacted and make some quick spacers up. Looking at the marks in the carpet there's very little physical contact between the seat runners and the bodywork.
