Re: Rocking seat
The OEM nylon slides are made from unobtainium.
I found a set of kitchen drawer and cabinet child-locks that have nice nylon parts and used them to make a set of slides.
I used a grinder, sandpaper and a dremel to shape them.
These next two pictures show them installed onto the rail.
Here you can see the new slides between the installed rail and track.
Taking the seat track apart to this degree was challenging. Removing the rail from the track requires a vice, hammer and large punch to bend the stops flat.
Putting it back together was more challenging yet. The bleeding on my hands has stopped, and no more rocking seat!
