Can someone tell me how to remove the driver seat cushion of a 2009 Edge without damaging it?

I need to grease the power seat hardware.

Thanks,

Ed

Holy Moly,

Looks like this is not a diy job.

Thanks anyway.

I used WD40 dry lube and sorated the hell out of everything I could see. Getting under the seat to spray the inside rail is a pain.

So, you just sprayed from the under site without removing the seat cushion?

Doesn't that stuff drip all over the carpet for days and smell awful?

WD40 dry lube is different than WD40.

(I just sprayed the tracks as best I could.)

OK, didn't know about the dry lube stuff.

Sounds like the way to go.

Thanks a lot.

What about spraying the connectors inadvertently?

Would that screw up the electrics under the seat?

This is what I used:

Unlikely imo. The connectors are tight and not subject to moisture intrusion.

I hit the tracks from front and rear, sprayed as much as I could reach.

OK, I'll check at my local ACE hardware store.

Thanks again.

FYI, I also use this on my BAMR as well. Stray makes it easy to get through the rubbers gaskets onto the tracks. Fast too.

Thanks for the tip.

Interesting tidbit - that name came from the Ford engineers themselves while they were working on the first application on the first gen Edge.
