Repair/Replace 1982Fiat 124/2000 Driver's Seat

Post by Treebeard71 » Sun Oct 18, 2015 10:14 am

The little doohickey that holds the seat back in various angles has stripped and I either need to repair this or replace the seat. As it it flops back. The last time I checked, I could find no replacement seats. A classic car repair guy said he could weld the seat in position which is an option, but I'd rather maintain functionality.

I do have some spare seats, but I'm not sure if there were 124 seats. I need to take a closer look at them. Is there an easy way to pull the Fiat Spider front seat off it's tracks? Any tips or links to guides would be appreciated!
Thanks!

I just looked at the replacement seat and the recline mechanism looks like it might be the same as the seats in the car. There are bolts on the side, so maybe I can swap out the mechanism and keep the original seats! Anyone know if this can be done? Thanks!
