the catch under the drivers seat on my 80 coupe doesn't work, so the
seat is at full height, until you sit in it, then you bounce up and
down.. Audi had a look and said there's a pin missing, and quoted me
£650 for a new seat base! Has anyone made this repair, and does anyone
have any advice as to how to remove the seat?
Of course no one does any actual 'repairs' anymore. Component replacement
is all they know how to do, and read computer readouts of fault codes that
is. I'd seek out an actual old-time 'mechanic' rather than some
white-gloved 'technician' employed by your authorized dealer.
