Hi All,

Just looking for a bit of advise...

My drivers seat (manual height adjustment) on my 2011 Kia Sorento would only rise on the left side. Investigation found that there is a metal bar/tube running the width of the seat that joins both sides of the height adjustment together. This bar/tube had snapped on the right hand side.

I got a replacement seat from a scrap yard only to find that this seat does not stay up as the exact same bar has snapped also - albeit in a slightly different place.

Is there a fix for this? Welding may an option but not sure it would hold.
Have I been unlucky with these two seats or is this a known fault and if so has anyone had any experience dealing with Kia over it? I’m thinking of maybe pointing out the safety angle???
