I found shorter versions at Lowes.

Re: Discovered why the front seat causes left hip pain

I removed the bolt with a T30 star head driver bit. It’s a M6x1.0 thread pattern. The inch long bolt only holds very thin plastic to thin metal which is why the entire bolt sticks through. The funny thing is the entire length is covered in thread lock. I’m going to drive without the bolt for a while...

Re: Discovered why the front seat causes left hip pain

If you lift up the seat height adjuster you'll see the torx bolt head. Should be simple to replace the bolt with a shorter one

Re: Discovered why the front seat causes left hip pain

Actually you don't even need to disassemble the seat to find the bolts! On the driver's side feel in between the plastic and the fabric just to the left of the A in Airbag. On the passenger's side just to the right of the G in Airbag.

Re: Howto: Adding more padding to front seats

While following these instructions I figured out why some people are having left hip pain. There is a huge bolt sticking out. See my post: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7293

Discovered why the front seat causes left hip pain

The reason some people are having pain in the left hip area is there is literally a bolt sticking 1.5” into the left hip. There is no bolt on the right side. I followed the instructions from forums to insert foam in the seat and found the bolt. My guess is there was a production line error where som...

Re: A cheap fix for the front seats

Thanks, I might buy this if the Purple cushion arriving tomorrow doesn't work out. I started with a memory foam cushion but it's too tall and not wide enough. One thing I'm bummed about is this will render the seat warmers useless so I might still try to add foam padding under the warmer if I can't ...
