I have a 2012 Subaru Legacy (Base Model). I am out of warranty now, and I have noticed that my seat almost seems to move a little when braking and accelerating. I don’t ever remember this before, but while accelerating from a stop, I get almost like a “pop” sound that appears to be coming from the back of the actual seat.
So, I am not sure if there is an easy fix for the rails, and for the back of the seat. What would be causing the back of the seat “pop” sound and feel while accelerating from a stop?
Also, what causes seat rails to go bad? Is there something I should be doing to “lock” the seat into place? I noticed that the bar you pull to move the seat back and forth also pushes downward. Is this to lock it?
I would really appreciate some feedback before attempting something.
