The £57 bolt

No, it’s not a story about special bolts for aircraft or some such. The car seat jammed, wouldn’t move forward or backward. I got under there with a torch but couldn’t see anything. Pulled, wrenched, hit the mechanism with a hammer. I’d have taken the seat out, but the position it was jammed in meant I couldn’t get to the rear bolts holding the seat runners.

Hence a quick trip to a mechanic, who had to use considerable ingenuity to get a spanner to the rear bolts, took the seat out and discovered the problem was another loose bolt, I think one that dropped out of a box of stuff I’d had in the car recently, that had rolled under there and jammed the mechanism.

So in essence one loose bolt cost me an hour and a bit of the mechanic’s time, but at least the seat works now.
