Hey everyone, I'm the proud owner of a 2003 Chevy Malibu (base model).
I love the car, and have had it for about 8 months now, and other than a water pump and flat tire, this rig hasn't let me down.
However, the driver's seat in my car is kinda falling apart. It's got cloth bucket seats, and the actual cloth covers on the seat are fine, but the padding on the left side bolster (the thing that keeps me from sliding all around into the door) on the back of the seat keeps sliding to the around the side of the seat, giving me little to no support. Also, the springs and cross supports (they like cooling racks in a kitchen) are all falling apart and are totally broken apart, offering me no mid-back support.
Is there and way to fix this? I've been thinking about simply swapping the backs of the two front seats, because the passenger seat is near MINT condition. It's also been suggested that I get some memory foam, about two inches thick or so, and spray glue it to the seat to offer myself a comfortable place to sit till I can afford a replacement seat, or at least a new back portion.
I normally wouldn't be so concerned about the condition of the seat and my comfort around town and commuting, but I'm taking a 5000 mile road trip in a couple of weeks, and will be in the seat for a good 50+ hours, and could use at the least a quick fix.
Thanks in advance.
