Hey guys and gals happy new year!

Quick question i just got leather seats for my ef mont and all is well apart for the front drivers seats dont match up to the holes in the carpet if that makes sense at all. The rails dont seam to have any adjustment to them and my front seat is held only on 2 of 4 bolts now :-(.

Any help wud be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance

Ale

try moving the forward/backward adjuster lever, at the front of the seat, and at the same time try and move the seat forward or backward to make the other rail line up.
the l&r rails are probably just out of sync

Ive given that a crack mate :-(. The left rails line up perfect and thats the side thats bolted in. The right rails are the problem ones they seem way to long for the holes on the floor if that makes sense

I suppose if you have the original seat, unbolt the backs and swap them over, and swap the base cushions.

Like everyone said - the rails are out of sync thats all. If you lift up the seat adjustment lever you will be able to push that rail back till it lines up.
