Default How To: Fix broken support rods in seat back

For those who need to fix the support rods in the back of your seat in your ranger.

Tools needed
3/8 Ratchet
Heavy Duty Crimper
Noble 8 awg HD butt connector {Noble part #910}
15MM Socket



Step 1: Unbolt seat and disconnect any wires under the seat


Step 2: Remove seat from truck and set on work bench or floor



Step 3: Undo plastic keeper holding fabric on


Step 4: Crimp connector to what is left of the rod and crimp to end of rod {crimp the two ends together with crimp




Step 5: Put back together and reinstall seat in truck


Seeing as i just did this, i dont know how long this fix will work, but hopefully awhile
If you are a little more handy and have a welder handy, you could tack weld these things on after crimping
Hope you find this helpful
