Uncomfortable Seats!

I have the leather seats and I can't drive it for more than a half hour before my back starts to hurt. If you look on the seats there is a horizontal line about halfway up, that's where my back hurts. My shoulder blades don't rich the seat there. I've tried a seat cover, power adjustments, and foam in back but still hard on back. Does anyone have a similar issue???

I got the cloths ones I find that the seam on the seat presses hard on my butt lol. It's annoying at first. You could try measuring the area and finding seats from a salvage yard or buying some recaros and putting them in.

Very easy fix. Remove the lumbar support plastic and it will soften the seat back. Here is how you do it...

1) Tilt the seatback as far forward it will go.

2) On either side their are zippers in the seat cover back. Unzip those. Fold up the seat cover revealing the internals.

3) You will see a plastic tray like device that slides in and out with a cable. Unsnap the cable from the plastic tray and pull it out. Leave the cable in place.

4) Close up your seat cover and you are done.

I did it while replacing the worn out bottom foam on my Limited's seat and it made it much more comfortable.

Thanks...

The bottom foam replacement requires that you pull out the seat. It wasn't real hard and you can change out the foam without removing the seat back. Be sure to have hog ring pliers and rings ready to re-install the upholstery. Since I've done it already I can give you the tips you need to do it. Taking your time should only take you about 30 to 45 minutes to get it done.
