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

originally crimped.

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.
