Front Lower Seat Cushion Restoration - On Demand Video

Here is the solution to aching "buns." Applies to W114 W115 W116 W123 and Early W126 1973 to 1985

Our seat spring repair kit has been a great success! It can easily repair sagging on broken front seat springs. But what about seat padding. A  lot of the older ( 1970's to 1980's glued fiber seat padding can crush down and even disintegrate over time. New correct fitting pads are hard to come by. So enter Kent's seat pad booster kit. It can fix seats that are still fixable. Remember, it is not a fix for torn upholstery or totally wasted seat bottoms. See pictures below to show you that you need to at least start with a "reasonable" seat.
