Seat Back

I have just noticed that the driver's side plastic seat back keeps popping off on my Overland. I know there has been several people with this same problem. What can be done to fix this? The slightest presure can make this thing pop off.

Re: Seat Back

Just take it to your dealer? I'd be in there EVERY time there is an issue.

Re: Seat Back

2 more tries and you can lemon law the car for seat covers

Seriously, call Jeep customer service and register a complaint so they force your dealer to figure out what's wrong or send them a new seat to install.

Re: Seat Back

No commonsense homebrew fix? Might beat trips to the dealer.

They've replaced my seat back twice already. If it starts happening again, I'm demanding a new seat but I doubt if they will see it the same way without a lot of drama on my part.

Re: Seat Back

Mine just went in for that and the seat creaking and moving back and forth, they fixed the seat moving but the creak is still there. The seat back hasn't popped off again though. I looked at the setup when it popped off and I was surprised to see such a cheap setup holding it on. Basically 2 molded clips, from what I saw I'm not surprised that it came off. Not sure what they did to fix it but I'm guessing as it ages it will continue to happen.

Re: Seat Back

I had to have the leather replaced on my drivers seat at the dealer and afterwards the back was popping off from something as simple as sitting in the seat. I took the piece off and looked carefully at where the clips catch in the seat and wound up slightly bending the clips/arms outwards so that they held better when clipped back into place. Seems to have fixed the problem as I've had no issues for a few months now.

Re: Seat Back

Same problem, bending the arms does not help for me. Looks like i am going to have to schedule a trip to the dealer.
