I didn’t take pictures for this one. The youtube video on the S60 leather seat removal
was spot on. Just take care to slowly stretch the leather. It is best to have the leather
already reconditioned with (e,g, Leatherique) .
I didn’t have to peel the entire skin off. About 2/3 was enough to get access to the
side switch where the seat release mechanism was.
The piano wire release was broken right at the release mechanism in the seat.
The cable was not stretched. I suspect the wire was compromised when it was
Counting the teeth isn’t good enough. I synchronized by trial and error. Making
sure there was no tension along the entire traverse. I watch most of Robert’s video
and his seat drive cable repair is spot on and good preventative maintenance if you
have the seat peeled already.
