  1. I had my truck into the dealership a few weeks ago for seat movement issues and it seems they added two small clips to fasten the seat cushion to the frame. At first it seemed it may be better (I think it was psychological), but I now have movement in the seat again. I see the clips are still there, but I get seat movement (lateral and forwards/backwards, not up and down) in turns and braking. It definitely feels like the bracket to me as the movement is small but sudden and clunks, not smooth like the cushion is sliding. Every time I get in the seat clicks/clunks a little in a manner that makes it seem as if it is taking up the slack in the bracket bushings or pivot points. Anyone who has had the actual seat bracket replaced have any better luck fixing the issue? is it the same bracket without a fix to address the slop in the bracket? This is ridiculous to have this happen on such an expensive vehicle. I know it is a new model blah blah blah, but things like this fall under the basic fundamentals. Figure out how to make a seat!!! Venting over....Thanks for the help and otherwise I love the truck so far, but get frustrated over such elementary things going wrong.
  2. I found this clip on YouTube of another Silverado that is exactly the same squeak I have. It's the one when a passenger is not in the seat. Has Anyone figured out how to eliminate this squeak? So far my fix is put seat back down or all the way back. Thanks all for any ideas.
  3. I bought my wife a 2019 trail boss great truck only thing is she has a hard time seeing over the dash to drive. It does not have an adjustable driver's seat for up and down. Does anyone know of any seat risers (manuel/or electric) that i can install to help her see so she can drive her truck? Thanks for any input on the topic
  4. Hey Guys, I didn't do a full write up, but wanted to compile all the links I used in one place to maybe help others. My driver side seat heater went out last year or so, and my bottom foam was absolutely shot. Even had a lean toward the door, wife and I both noticed it causing us pain on the way to Florida, so I finally stopped putting it off. Decided if I was going to do the seat heater, I was going to do the TSBs on the under side as well as the foam itself. I went back and forth on doing the OEM foam, but finally settled on attempting to upgrade it. Went with The Seat Shop option on Amazon. Very quality piece, fit like OEM, has the same connections for the tubes on the leather cover and the velcro on the bottom side leather attaches to in 2 spots. The stiffness is noticeable feeling them side by side. I feel this one will hold up better, but time will tell. Ill circle back in a year or so and report back. Parts: The Seat Shop Durofoam I bought, part number may vary slightly check for your application. Heated vs Cooled etc. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078NG3V47/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I bought my seat heater from the local dealer.

  5. On two occasions now while taking the truck out of 4WD the power seats starts to close in on me and the gas and break pedals start to move. Dealership today couldn't replicate it and I have been searching and found nothing. Am I alone on this one?
  6. About a month ago I purchased a 16 Tahoe LTZ with 37,000 miles. My driver side seat cooling works great on both the seat and the backrest. But on my passenger side I noticed that the seat section does not cool at all only the backrest is cool on that side. I’ve compared it with the driver side and I’m convinced there is an issue. Can anyone provide some insight as to what could be wrong? Are there 2 separate fans for the backrest and the seat? What should I look for and try before I take it in for service? Thanks in advance.
  7. I have a 2017 Silverado LT with power cloth seats. Initially the drivers seat had a comfortable feel to it; nice suppport and firmness. After six months or so and a few thousand miles one day I noticed that I was not sitting at my usual height. The view out the windshield was different as well as the view out of the rear view mirror. My first thought was that the power height adjustment had changed so I raised the seat. The next day I was sitting way too high so I lowered the seat. I began checking the height position of the seat in relation to the floor mounts and discovered that it was not moving. It must be the cushion sinking. If I do not drive the truck for a few days the seat height is right where I expect it to be and the firmness is improved. After an hour or so of driving I notice that I am sitting lower. I check this by gauging the distance from top of my head to the ceiling with my fingers. The longer I am in the truck the greater this distance becomes. The change is about one to two inches. Don't drive for a day or two and height and firmness returns. I brought this to the attention of my dealer and of course they can not see anything wrong. I expect I would have to leave the truck with them for a few days. I'm thinking that one way to prove this would be to place a piece of wood on the seat then measure the height and photograph, go for a drive then measure again. What do you guys think? Has anyone else experienced this?
  8. Hey! As the title mentions, I'd like to buy leather seat covers for my 2014 Silverado. My truck is a standard cab, so I only need the front seat components. I do have the center jump seat. OEM, Katzkin, Roadwire… I'd be happy with any of them. I'd prefer black or gray, but may be open to other color options. Let me know if you have anything! Thank you!
  9. Hey I'm looking to get some durable seat covers that can wash well and stay put(without sliding around). Durability is key because I have a BIG (125lb) Dog and being a Newfy/Pyrenees mix he drools a ton all over so I'm looking to get some good seat covers. (and yea i ordered those pet covers for the rear bench seats but I'd still like some cool seat covers)
  10. Coverking Cordura Ballistic Seat Covers, front and rear (2014 Double Cab). Used for 18 months, still in great condition. $250.00 for all, will not separate, buyer pays shipping from 48611.
  11. Thinking of pulling off my RB10s for a cleaner look. Post pics of drivers seat if you have a level/lift without steps and how many miles. trying to get an idea of how the K2xx seat quality is. Or just seat wear and mileage in general. I think it could be a useful thread.
  12. Has anyone installed these? They can be ordered from the Chevy accessories website. The part # is 23443854. I have cloth interior and would be for keeping my seats protected from kids, car seats, dogs, etc. Just curious about some feedback on how they fit and material type/thickness and if they're worth $295.
  13. Hey guys, I have a 2017 Sierra 2500hd denali 4x4 Bought new about 2 weeks ago and am finding when I'm climbing in and out of the truck the front seat squeaks. It sounds like the leather rubbing on something. When just driving it's fine, but shifting myself around or getting in and out there is a squeaking noise? Its driving me nuts! The cabin is next to silent except this issue... A 3500hd denali i test drove did not have this problem. Just wondering if its something simple before i go bothering my dealer.... As a side note I also have a 2017 Yukon Denali and the seats make no noise at all and side by side they are the same seat.
  14. Where is the best place for leather seat covers? currently have cloth seats in my 1500 but i wanna upgrade now.
  15. Had my new 2015 Tahoe LTZ for about 5 weeks and for a few weeks now have been feeling a pressing in the back of my thighs/rear. Tried adjusting the seat many times. It is the lane departure sensors in the seat base that seem to be mounted too high, with not enough padding on top of them. Both the right and left side are super uncomfortable. Took it to Silver Star in Thousand Oaks, CA. Service tech hopped in and felt them right away. Awaiting repair but not optimistic.. Anyone have similar problem?
  16. Looking for some tribal knowledge on the options for a 2017 double cab under seat storage system. Found a couple of threads talking about earlier models that got me looking at the OEM and aftermarket solutions but fit on the 2017 seems to be different. Found this thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/181026-under-seat-storage/?hl=under%20seat%20storage That got me looking at Du-HA and Husky but when you look up the OEM part number 23183670 it looks like the center piece is very slim compared to the pictures of the 2016 options. Du-Ha on one page shows they don't have an option for the 2017 yet http://www.du-ha.com/ but if you click on the 2014-2016 option it says it fits the 2017 as well. Really like the Du-Ha option better but looking at the OEM I don't think it will fit. Anyone here have the Du-Ha or another model in you 2017 that can provide some clarification on fit?
  17. Rolled off the lot with my used 2016 Suburban LTZ and I think this popped off from my kids climbing into the back (buckets next time) and I threw it out thinking it was something my kids left behind. Went through the garbage and recycling already. I know I could probably get the dealer to replace as if it was never there, but if it's inexpensive I'd rather fix my mistake. Anyone know how to find the part number for this? I can't find anything googling. TIA
  18. Like the title says... Will a 3rd row seat from a '93 Suburban fit in a '95? I know the interiors got updated for '95, but different 3rd row seat fitment? I got a Suburban, but it's missing the 3rd row seat and someone has one from a '93 for $10. Not all that close to me, so want to try to determine before making the trip.
  19. Hey guys I am having some problems with my truck and would like to see what you think. The truck is a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. It is currently at the dealership for repair. I took the truck in for a sunroof leak on August 9. They diagnosed it as a bad seal and ordered a seal and new head liner, but had me drive it home. The leak was causing electrical problems so I parked the truck in my garage and carpooled to work. The parts arrived at the dealership and I brought the truck in on the 15th. They tell it will be done Tuesday at the latest, which is the next day. Wednesday comes and I haven't heard from them so I call. They won't answer my questions at first then tell me it'll be done the next day. Well come to find out on the 18th they misdiagnosed and it needs a whole new sunroof assembly. Guess what? GM doesn't have one in stock and will let me know by close of business the next day when they can get one. That doesn't happen either. So today, August 22, they call me at 1130 to say it won't be in stock until September 8. So at this point I am pretty annoyed of driving 6-cylinder work truck when I bought a brand new Denali. My truck spent 28 days last year in the shop for transmission problems and another week for the steering wheel heater going on the fritz and making it almost untouchable. The rep and I decide that the buyback program is reasonable next step since my truck is breaking so often. She calls and the DMA denies the claim. My response at 1230 is fine the truck will meet the Arizona lemon law requirements when the part arrives. Magically at 1300 the dealership service manager deems that a different part will work. I think it is convenient timing that when they cannot get the correct part for weeks and have no other option the word lemon comes out they find something else that works. What do you guys think? My truck will be down for at least 3.5 weeks before they can install this substitute part. Putting it out of service for almost 9 weeks in 20 months of ownership. Not to mention they have not fixed my seat issues. Should I seek legal counsel? Am I out of line? Cooperate GM just tells me to talk to the dealerships customer service rep, who just happens to be the service manager calling the shots for my repairs. Thanks, -Joe H.
  20. Hey guys, I'm having an issue with my truck I'm hoping someone can help me with what to do next!! Heres the specs: 2014 Silverado, 5.3l, Z71 4x4. LT double cab Mileage at purchase - 5,000 Mileage when realized issue - 7,000 Mileage at dealer visit - 9,000 Current Mileage - 16,500 I purchased the truck about 10 months ago. Within about 2 months of purchase I noticed the drivers seat had become slanted down to the left towards the window. This is the only seat in the vehicle that has this issue. All other seats sit level and are comfortable. When looking at the seat you can't see it's slanted, so I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the cushion or brackets holding it up. I put up with up for about 2 months because I was new to the truck driving style and figured I was imagining it. Took it in to the local GMC dealer and asked the maintenance salesman to have someone look at it. He sat in the seat and could definitely tell it's slanted when you're sitting in it. Not imagining it. He had a mechanic take it apart and put it back together and said he couldn't find any issue. The maintenance salesman then told me "You must just lean to the left when you sit." This is absolute crap because I've been leaning with more weight on my right side to offset the imbalance and to not feel like I'm going to fall over. I think that idea would be fair game if I had the truck 8 years, not 2 months. Also, I've never had this issue with any other vehicle I've owned. The way correspondence ended with the dealer is that the maintenance salesman was going to talk to his manager and see if the bottom seat portion was covered under warranty, then the manager would get back to me. The manager never called back and each time I can never reach the manager and can not get any useful information/help. Now I've bought a next to brand new truck on with a terribly uncomfortable ride. Just buying a new seat or different vehicle simply isn't in the cards. I love the truck otherwise but I don't want to do. Any ideas? Thank you,
  21. Has one successfully installed Coverking Cordura Ballistic Seat Covers? I spent about and hour, and got four head rests on, an unsatisfied center cover on, and gave up on the drivers seat. Attached is the center console, anyone else experience this? For almost $500 they should fit better than this.
  22. Hello, I bought a new 2015 Silverado 1500 LT (4WD Z71 5.3L V8 Midnight Edition) about a month ago. I have begun to notice that on my hour long drive to work my right leg begins to throb and ache. This pain then radiates down to me feet where my toes begin to throb and the arch of my foot. I only experience this sensation in this truck. It seems to be related to the end of the seat where the thigh right behind your knee hangs off the front edge of the seat. Does anyone else have this issue? I've tried adjusting the seat various ways and can't seem to solve it. It REALLY quite hurts to the point I dread the ride more than normal. Also, does anyone know of some good cushions that will fit the seat so as to raise my legs above the edge of the seat? Let me know, thanks.
  23. Is the leather seat worn and torn in your 1998 or 1999 Chevrolet, GMC or Cadillac Pick-up Truck, Yukon, Tahoe or Escalade? I have a gray color, used drivers side seat cover, in really good condition! This is a HEATED seat cover, which includes the heating element. This is an OEM GM part; the drivers bottom seat cover. $250 (free shipping in the USA) I replaced this seat cover with a new one because my heated seat quit working and I thought it was the element, so I replaced the seat cover (which contains the element) but it turned out to be a relay/module instead. Bummer, eh? For me, yeah, but for you it means a great deal on a *heated* seat cover in really good shape!
  24. I need a new seat in my 'early' 2000 truck which is basically 98-earlier body. I was wondering if anyone has ever put the 2nd row seat (60/40) from a Suburban or Tahoe in the front of a chevy/gmc full size truck? The drivers side won't be on tracks but does flip forward. I have never moved my seat now in the last 6 years I've owned it so not really needing adjustable. I think passenger side migjht be on the 60/40. I get my choice.. leather or cloth- same junk yard and both excellent shape ($100)- It kind of looks like I'd have to shorten the hump side or lengthen the drivers side but doable. The passenger side(the 40%) looks like it will fit good other than adding couple holes??
  25. Hey all, hopefully somebody can help me out here. This past summer i bought a new Sierra extended cab SLT, and it seems all I have had so far are problems. I purchased the truck from a reputable GM dealer near my hometown. The truck was listed as a demo, the only driver being the actual owner of the dealership. I saved a good amount off the original sticker price for only having about 18,000km's on the odometer. ISSUE #1 - HISTORY I purchased the truck on July 7th 2012. I noticed on August 4th 2012 on the front drivers leather seat was beginning to "ripple" if that's even the correct terminology. I gave it a few days to see it it would "tighten up" after giving it a good clean up and conditioning the seats with the dealer provided solution at the time of purchase. I took a photo of the seat on August 10th 2012, a few days after noticing the damage. Nothing too serious, but beginning to bug me a little, considering I had just spent nearly 40K on a vehicle that I thought was well built.. I contacted the dealer I purchased my truck from and talked to the sales person whom I dealt with directly on August 13th 2012. I was told over the phone that leather on a truck this new would not let go this easily, and that I may be over exaggerating the problem. I brought my truck in the following day. I got a big story of how they had never seen such a problem on any vehicle, let a lone a vehicle this new. They continued for a little while and eventually handed me over to the service department. Service department told me it was an easy fix by re-tightening the leather from behind, a two hour job at most. I ended up getting scheduled for an appointment a few days later. On the day of my appointment I was told the upholstery person was too busy and they would give me a call when the situation got better to reschedule my appointment. October 23rd 2012 - A few weeks later, I was able to get the truck in for them to take a look. The service department wasn't able to fix the seat and would require ordering a new seat cover from general motors. November 13th 2012 - 3 weeks have passed since I was last at the dealer. The cover came in and truck was in for replacement. Job took about two hours. I was given a car for the day and came back in the afternoon to pick my truck up. (sorry for the blurry photo!!) Tonight (December 12th 2012) Second seat cover, same problem only worse. Keeping in mind, I'm a pretty small guy, so I don't think this is a weight issue by any means. The first time the dealer was unwilling to replace the whole seat, or even the bottom section. I almost fear that's what is needed in order to fix this problem. What to do? It almost feels as if the seat cushion is sagging underneath. I have never seen this on any of these trucks, sadly only mine ISSUE #2 Transmission is starting to slip when accelerating between 2nd gear and 3rd (its the 6 speed, 5.3L). This truck has just reached 40,000km (about 25,000 miles). Its hard to pinpoint it exactly, as I've only started to notice it at the beginning of this week. Please don't tell me its "just the way those transmissions shift" its not, i know it isn't. I'd hat to run out of warranty on my truck and all of a sudden left stranded with a blown transmission on the side of the road, and kicking myself for not taking action as soon as I noticed it. Any help and guidance with either issue will be greatly appreciated.
