R33 GTR seat bent/twisted?

Good evening everyone,

I've had a look around on various places and cannot see to find an answer, so I am sorry if this has been asked before. I have a set of GTR seats in my GTS-T but the driver's seat seems to be leaning to the centre of the car. Now I've had a little look and cannot see anything obviously broken on the runners, so my next port of call is stripping the seat down to the frame and seeing if anything is broken there as I don't really want to throw the seats out because they were reupholstered not too long ago. Does anyone know how easy it is to strip these down or if there are any common things to look for as to what could be wrong with the seat? the base seems to be fine it's just the back that when sitting in the seat leans to the passenger side and makes it horrible to drive!

Any help people can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Alan

strip the seat and you will find the back cracked at the lower pivot point

Thanks for your reply, how easy is it to strip the seat down and are there any guides out there to explain how it's done, I don't want to pull something apart that shouldn't.
