hovered my car out today for the first time since getting it. anyway when i came to hoover under the drivers seat it tipped forward like a 3dr seat........ and its a 5dr.





need to weld the brackets back together but its right next to the SRS unit. is it safe to weld next to this??? is it a pressurised gas cylinder inside???? if its not safe to weld next to it how do i remove it from the seat safely? thanks in advance ppl! :D

you need to get a slim screwdriver or small torx bit, and put it in the end of the little pin / rivet holding the tensoner in place, make sure you put the red saftey fork in place before removing the seat, then hammer the rivet out, then when welded just tap it back in place with a hammer
