147 Drivers seat

Hi everyone, bought my first alfa about 3 weeks ago and thought i'd make use of this excellent forum.

Its a 2006 Lusso JTD 16v and the drivers seat seem a little loose.

When the ratchet is near its lowest position the left hand side of the seat rocks backwards quite a bit and then springs back. When its at its highest position its pretty stable.

Just wondering if this is just an Alfa trait so i'd be grateful to hear if anyone else has noticed this on their 147

I had the identical symptoms, and the problem was the seat frame base was broken towards the back. A mate welded it up for me so it is now AOK. The only way to tell is to remove the seat and have a close look. Let me know what you find.
