Defender 90 Jockey seat stops

Hi

I have a Defender 90 which has the 4 sideways facing jockey seats. The U shaped piece of tubular metal which rests on the floor of the Defender when someone sits in the seat sometime slips out of the fixing on the seat base. It seems as though there may be some rubber stops or something missing that stops this from being an issue. Does anyone know if there is a part available to stop this occurring?

Cheers Mark

post a pic of how you place the support...It should go under the seat and rest against the tub not face inward towards the seats on the other side.

yes...it doubles back at a 45deg angle under the seat against the tub sides. It shouldn't need anything more to sit in the bracket on the underside of the seat base.

Sorry guys not explained myself very well. The U shaped tubing that effectively acts as the seat 'legs' when its in use is becoming detached from the seat as its slipping out of the seat attachment.

Squeeze the "u" arms together and remove it from the seat bottom. Then try to pull the ends of the u apart to widen the gap. Then put it back into the seat bottom. Should stay now.
