    Uh-oh - seat mounts stripped - HELP!

    I was putting my racing seat in today and noted that the front threads for the welded nut inside the frame are stripped - it's not the bolts, as I switched them and the back bolts go in quite well, just the fronts, and BOTH of them! CRAP!~ What can be done about this? I don't see how new bolt heads can be welded to the inside of the frame, so will I have to re-tap them and use larger bolts or what?

    Re: Uh-oh - seat mounts stripped - HELP!

    I have not looked too closely to the Porsche seat bolts but I know from building cars for the past 12 years for a large automotive company that these nuts in the floor pan do not have threads in them but the bolts are designed to cut threads into the threadless nut. The standard repair that we utilize which is approved by the head design engineers is an over sized bolt. Where you get one, and what size you now need I have no idea, but I am sure Stuggart would have a repair process. So I would give the dealer a call for starters and attempt to have the issue escalated. Good luck, I am sure you are worried but I am just as sure there is an approved factory repair for this!
