Having just taken both front seats out of my Sprint I've realised why they feel so soft - they have no diaphragms!

I'm not sure how long they've been like that but the foam is now split so I won't be sitting on them until my behind is fully supported.

Does anybody have a pair available or should I be resorting a DIY fix? If it's the latter can any other part be made to fit - the TR3-6 ones sold by Rimmers, for example - or am I into buying sheet and cutting to shape?

Like the rest of parts needed, there's no rush :)

It’s a shame I didn’t see this earlier then, as I was in Weston super Mare where the stock is held!

Mail order on these, sorry.
