Both seat backs on my optional buckets have now cracked in the same place. Has anybody managed to get these replaced under warranty or know how to remove them in order to repair?
How old is the car as that’s not good!

As for removal thinking from pictures I think there are some bits that just pull out and then the rest in hooks. I just can’t remember whether it’s the top or bottom you need to pull first.

@paddy6789 and manuals that can help?

The car is a 2018 model. I noticed the passenger seat back crack about 18mths ago and this seat hardly ever gets used but I've recently noticed a crack on the drivers in exactly the same place, it does seem too much of a coincidence and I suspect the part is weak in that area.

Had the same on my cupra st, took it to dealer for replacement and sorted without issue under warranty.

It was letchworth Seat, they were good with no resistance. They took some photos so they could contact Seat and confirm, as the car was in for the sunroof leaking also sorted under warranty and rang me back the next day to book in.
