• Most Honda Seats from the 70's use similar type of construction. These guidelines can be used for several different model seats.
  • This seat pan has one of the mounting studs broken off. For the repair job, you will need an electric or pneumatic grinder and a welder. If you don't have a welder available, any machine shop will do the simple welding for a nominal charge.

  • Use a flat tip screw drive to straighten the tabs holding the seat vinyl on the underside. Be careful, not to be very aggressive with the tabs.
  • Separate the vinyl and the foam from the seat pan.
  • There is a plastic edging, remove and save it for later use during reupholstering.
  • Notice how foam was glued on to the pan in several place.
  • Use a power grinder to grind the studs. When flush with the seat base, use a punch to remove the studs. Even though, only one stud was broken, we replacing both studs. Make sure to remove rust from the surrounding area.

  • You will need two 6mm bolts that are 7/8" long for use as studs. Use a wire brush or sandpaper to remove all the zinc coating from the bolts, otherwise they will not weld.
  • Install the seat bracket with nuts to properly align the bolts on the bottom.
  • After welding, cleanup and grind down the heads a little bit with the grinder.
