need moh infomashun.

you talkin bout where the seat bolts to the track or where the track bolts to the floor?

we had a screw loose where the track meets the floor and rather than endure the dealer follies over a small item, I fixed it by filling the hole in a most weird way.

took 2 small pieces of weed eater line and stuck them into the stripped hole... ran the screw in and tightened it and haven't had a problem since. so it's a decent filler. (Your results may vary)

i don't have any stripped screws/bolts but just a pain to get the screws/bolts tightened with the seat attached and in the track...it is where the seat is tightened down to the track so it would be tight, rather than the sloppiness it currently feels like...

Yep I had the same thing happen, I just took some blue loctite on all 4, and it has been good for over a year now

Cable ties work equally well!

Use a small phillps bit driver with a ľ drive ratchet with a small socket that fits the bit driver works well

hmm, will have to try that, just so tough lining up those darn flanged washers and the 2nd washer and getting the threads to bite on the front...GREAT IDEA!!!
