Seat adjustment cables

Post by Vic » Thu May 21, 2020 8:33 am

Hi, can anyone help in finding the seat adjustment cables please. I can find the shorter one but need the longer one. Alternatively is there a dual bowden cable I can use?

Check the length of your old one.

Thank you for the link. I'm repairing some GTX seats and the cable is missing on both seats. The mechanism had been twist tied together.

Both my seats have 1 broken cable and a bit of wire holding up the locking arm :-D :-D :-D

Give them a call and they should be able to advise and right length, the guy in charge is a VW nut.
