2000 grand cherokee limited drivers seat wobbly?

Hi im new to the forum so any help is appreciated

my drivers seat has been wobbly for about 3 months now and squeaks when i brake. but a couple of weeks back i moved my seat up and there was a hex head screw tht said "9.8" with a "M" above it which im guessing is mopar on the floor behind it. I cant seem to find where it goes.... i dont see anything broken so i dont think its the bracket that breaks like everyone else ive read about.

Broken seat frames are not uncommon. You will have to remove the seat from the Cherokee to determine the cause. Usually a few new welds will solve the problem. In extreme cases, a used seat frame from the junkyard is the only cure.


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

My 2000 WJ had both a broken track and a broken seat frame. I purchased a new to me track from bone yard for $50.00. When I removed the seat, I pulled cushion back to exposed the broken frame, a couple beads and it is as good or better than new. Remove the seat (4 bolts and a couple wires) to get a good look at what repairs your seat needs.
