I need to replace the Seat Adjusting Rod Grommet on my 1953 GMC. Before I tackle the task the Factory Assembly Manual shows the grommet (attached) but not an exploded view to see what needs to be taken apart. If anyone has replaced the grommet I would appreciate any tips.
I replaced mine and I believe the proper way is to remove one of the slides to disconnect the rod. I found (while trying to figure out how to disconnect the rod from the slide), if you bend the rod sufficiently you can get it disconnected, slide on the new grommet and reconnect.
