2007 ION-2 Sedan
Default Minor 2007 Ion Driver Seat Cushion Problem

Daughter #2 has a 2007 Ion. When you first sit in the driver seat you feel a snap or "ka-chunk" on your bottom side. The seat appears to be firmly bolted to the floor pan. Not a serious problem. Thought I would try to fix it while she's back from college. Anyone have a similar problem?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

My daughter also has a 2007 Ion and I tried to find the cause of a similar problem. I took the seat cover off and tried to see what might cause it but ended up just putting it back together. I dont see the car very often but saw it this weekend and noticed that there is no sound anymore. Hers has about 85K Kilometres on it. Pulling the seat cover off isnt too difficult but it is a bit tricky getting the trim locked back on at the front of the seat.

does her car have the optional height adjustable driver's seat? mine does, and it makes a sound like that every now and then. if it does have it, and it does it every time, it might have a loose mechanism in the seat... maybe see if it adjusts smoothly and easily. it's a second handle in front of the back tilt lever. it's like a modern VW, you pump it to adjust it.

My daughters does, and now that you mention it, she probably hasnt adjusted the height for a long time and it has most likely settled into a stable position. Thanks for the tip.

The car does have a manual seat height adjuster. I gave the ratchet a couple clicks to move the seat up. It seemed low. This may have "fixed" it. I will get another chance to check it again this weekend.

I'm weird, I like to cycle everything on my car periodically. I'll go between the door lock switch and my key fob, use the key, move the height adjuster, ect...
