Flexsteel seat wobble

I have a Flexsteel driver bucket seat that has a small wopple when moving side to side by hand. It makes a noise like a loose bolt. It will also tilt to the right unless I move it up to level the seat.
It appears to in an area where the upper seat frame connects to a bracket that is connected to a rod that goes across the front bottom of seat. This bracket is used for the tilting of the seat. The seat movement appears to be the play within this bracket. Does anyone know how to tighten up to stop the slight wopple. Seat movement might be 1/4 inch. Not much but a little annoying. Can this be dangerous or anything to worry about? Anyone else notice this on their bucket seats? The passenger seat is a similar type seat that has a smaller movement but no sound or tilting to side.
Thanks ......................

Power seat?


I am no expert, but If ours is any example, the power seat appears to have more play in the mechanism than does the mechanical adjusting passenger seat. If the seat is securely bolted to the floor safety should not be an issue.

SVTotem,

Yes, it is a power seat. Yes, the seat is secure at the bottom. I was just concerned about the play in the mechinism. Everything is probably OK.
Just wanted to see if that was normal to have the play.
Thanks ...........

Wopple?
We have two of the Flexsteel electrically operated seats. They have a little wobble to them but not that much.

My drivers seat is a Flexsteel power seat, and I've never noticed any slop as the OP mentioned. Rv is a 95.. I'll be out in the shop today to work on the jeep,, grrr, I'll look at ours and repost later.

I have a 2003 Scottsdale with the power Flexsteel Drivers seat. I have a slight lean to the right but no wobble. It used to bother me but I guess I have gotten used to it...
