    repair ideas for back to back seats-gctid386283

    I have a 2005 175. The bracket that attaches to the underside of the rear facing seat that allows the seat to fold out or hold in place, snapped in 2 places. Unless the person riding in that seat holds perfectly still, the seat will slide. My question is, does anyone know of a way to fix this problem? If I need to replace the seat, is there a place where I can purchase a used seat that will match my existing seat (white with blue trim). No luck on ebay. If forced to buy new, what are my chances of buying a matched replacement, and where would be the best place for the best price be?

    Thanks!

      The seat base parts are available, the number is right on the plastic part. You need to un staple the vinyl from it and then take it out. Had to do that repair on one of mine after someone stepped on an extended lounger. I wound up taking it to an upholstry shop and having them staple it since I didn't have a gun strong enough for the job.

        Wow things did change over the years!

        My 2003 175 has plywood seat bottoms, and the rods are bolted to the plywood. In fact, plywood is the base structural member for every single upholstered seat bottom and back.

          I guess we are lucky with our plywood! I step on my extended seats all the time and they never have broken.....

              Where did you find the replacement part? The part is just stapled back in place? Thanks for the reply. The pictures showed exactly the same break that I had. Thanks for being so thorough!

                You order it from a bayliner dealer. Yes the vinyl just gets stapled to the plastic piece

                  Just stapling the vinyl to the plastic part holds the plastic part securely enough? These may seem like silly questions, but my boat is at my cottage and I'm not, so it is hard to visualize and check.

                  Thanks again.

                    Yup - the staples go clean through the plastic. You'll see how secure they are when you try to pull them out
