I think considering he didn't want to DIY and he discovered that he had two problems, he came out just fine.

Thanks for the info. It's just one small part...and I was able to get some high density foam and shape it to fit there.Any good upholstery shop can cut new foam and install it for you. Worth it in the long term.
I want to thank the members for the pix on page 11 of this thread.
In the last week, I've felt like something was loose and bumping around under the seat - today I lifted the LR corner and it lifted off the track. I'm fairly sure that this is the same problem shown on page 11, since the power adjustment works forward and back, the front lifts and falls, but when trying to bring the back of the seat up, only the right side lifts.
Doesn't seem like a big deal to me given the pix of the seat assembly. If the break is like the one shown there, any welding shop worth visiting can weld the part back together without a problem.
I'm busy this weekend, but the seat is fine as it is - it's in the right place and I don't need to move it. In a couple of weeks I'll pull the seat and if the problem is a broken part as shown in page 11, I'll take that assembly to a shop, have it welded, take some pix and put it back together. Ought to cost $25 or not much more.
An excellent idea! Thanks for the suggestion. Again, not a difficult thing for any good welder to do.Don't just get the broken pieces welded back in. Reinforce the frame by fabricating a brace with heavier steel and weld that on to the broken area so it never breaks again. You'll see the broken pieces are made with rather thin metal, doesn't take too much work to weld a brace in while you're at it.
The only reason that I can see to disconnect the battery is to avoid an accidentally deployment of the seat air bag when you unplug the air bag wire harness to remove the seat, just to be safe.I don't remember reading the need to disconnect the battery for a seat repair even if the FSM tells you so. Some steps in the FSM can be totally ignored or done another way without having any problems. One example is the cvt fluid change. Even dealers drain from the plug but FSM says to drain from the oil cooler line and no mention of the drain plug even being touched. Anyways, good luck man.
Well, there you go. Sound like a better plan than leaving the battery disconnected for days.The only reason that I can see to disconnect the battery is to avoid an accidentally deployment of the seat air bag when you unplug the air bag wire harness to remove the seat, just to be safe.
Not a big deal to remove the ground wire from the battery, unplug the air bag wire harness under the seat, and reconnect the ground wire so you don't lose the engine's "learned" settings while you have the seat out.
I agree, but air bags are hideously expensive and going through a relearn seems like a cheap price to pay for insurance.I don't remember reading the need to disconnect the battery for a seat repair even if the FSM tells you so. Some steps in the FSM can be totally ignored or done another way without having any problems.
