Brera seat rocking

Hi guys
I have started to experience the dreaded rocking chair effect I've seen a few posts but short of a new frame is there no fix other than this? Surely apart from a prop (technical term) there's another way
Thanks in advance apart from that I love it the punchy 2.4 jtd

Design flaw from new. The original owner should have had it seen to.

That's what I did. Mind you it had to be at that setting in an effort to make it feel 'sporty', still a little high.
Only ever notice a slight rocking now in extreme situations.

More of the same ....

Hi All,

I have just bought a 2006 Brera 3.2 JTS V6 SV and I love it. I really am having a blast with it. However the driver's seat does rock to and fro, true to form, and it's the so annoying . Aside from buying a new seat base (cheapest I've found is circa 600 !!) is there a fix that anyone has found ? Mine seems to have quite a large movement, although it is probably only around 8-10mm in reality.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Chris

I have the same issue in mine. But I only notice it when I moving my seat forward/backwards. Might try the fix suggested above in post #2
