Smile Flexsteel Captains Chair wobble

My drivers seat and my co-pilots seat started to wobble badly. The fix; where the worm activates the lift and lower cam at the rear of the seat; one side was broken away from the shaft. Got a portable welder to come in and weld the ear back on and we are good as new. Make sure you surround the pedestal with old wet towels to catch any hot sparks and you won't have to take seat out.

I'd be worried about damaging some electronics. Pull the seats and reduce the risk?

I wasn't advocating for anyone to do something unsafe. This worked for me and only cost me a service charge (100.00). In my 2003 Travel Supreme four 1/2 or 5/8 studs bolt the pedestal to the floor and the wiring is plugged in for easy disconnect. The toughest part of taking the seat out would be to manhandle it out of the coach. Whatever works for you if your having the same problem.

I had the same problem with a weld in the same spot. I removed the seat mechinism and had it welded. My seat is very solid and does not rock. However, the seat leans to the right. Is there an adjustment for this? I thought about putting in some washers above the bolts that hold the set to the frame.
