Squeaky Seat

Folks,
Looking for a little help. Driver's side seat is squeking at the base due to the 4 feat floating a bit against the seat tracks. The original instalation of the seat comes with a spacer under each seat where it mounts to the floor. I purchased Mud U.K. seat lifters and still used the spacers due to the fact that the lifts would get in the way of the adjuster. Anyone else fix those squeaky bastards ? I was thinking about adding a couple of pop rivets to secure the feet to the seat track.....
Thank you,
Clay

Weld the 4 tabs back to the slider tracks. It cures the click and the squeak found in Defender seats. They were originally just pressed in and over time they loosen. Welding them cures it.

O.K. sounds like a plan. Than you. Do you have a welded set I could purchase and send you back the old ones? Since I don't have a welder

Take your seat out and take it to a local welding shop. It takes about 5 minutes per seat, no need for great cost here, anyone who can wled can solve the issue for ya.

I did what Mike suggests, its not very involved, and I think the place charged me like 20 bucks for 8 little welds.

Jim and Mike I will take your advice. Any other annoying squeaks that pop up that I can be pro-active about whilst I am being welded upon?

If you have a CB you might want to get a bottle of squelch oil.
