I’ve had a few things bug me since buying the car 6 months ago
So today as it’s sunny I got the ratchets out!

Drivers seat... if you held the front of the seat it lifted. Loose and rattled.
Using the button on the side lifted the front right of the seat so it tilted!

So following the remove seat instructions hooked the bigger out.
There are 4 13mm nuts holding the base of the seat down on welded
Threads. My left hand thread had snapped off the bottom of the seat 😩
Soooo I stripped the seat back and pulled the foam up and will some large washers on the inside used a new bolt to drop down and bolt to the lifter.
Seat out, vacuumed and shampood the carpet.
Replaced in reverse order. The wiring is a bit fiddly to clip back on the side
Of the inner metal work, all fixed and solid with front seat lifting straight.

Second job again involving the passenger seat.
Again hooked it out ! Since having the car ever turn or bump there
Was a rattle under the carpet.... so with carpet out I stripped back the carpet to reveal the air vent tubing. Unscrewed and removed, tipped up to find

60 pence in coins and a pen! The coins shook out but the pen took a bit longer

So shrapnel free was all put back together.
Both seats got a good white greasing on the moving parts
And wires checked before refitting.

Job done for a sunny UK day πŸ˜€

Yesterday I did my front stabilizer links and bushings. Trying to get rid of a suspension squeak. It didn't work.... Grrrrr. And I cross threaded the shit out of one of the Bolts for the bushings. Other than that the install went well... Lol.

Still have to do the rears.

And will probably do the front shocks next to see if that solves the squeak! I bought some zf/Sachs front struts a while ago. But will have to decide if I want to reuse the springs or buy new ones as they have 318k km on them.

Ive had the rear drivers side replaced few months ago, it had snapped.

Drove over a small field yesterday and the opposite side creaks so will probably get the other one sorted soon too. Looked at it yesterday and its all rusty.

Hope you sorted the cross threaded bolt ?

I ran it in with my impact. It's not going anywhere. If I ever have to do the bushings again it'll he a drill/tap job and a new bolt.

I fixed the blown / rattling cone edge Bose sub woofer in my '07 LE. This is the product I used: https://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-repair-adhesive-mi-1291.html.
It was not that difficult to get to the sub enclosure. Remove all the seat belt bolts, remove the 4 tie down hooks, pray the trim from the rear end storage. I took the 3rd row left seat out and that made the job of removing the plastic trim much easier. Carefully pop out the large plastic trim that covers all side in one piece. I removed the the sub enclosure and sealed both subs on by workbench. Let it dry overnight. Worked like a charm !!!

This is not "Interior" but....: I checked my radiator and it was low to my surprise. added 2 quarts of distilled water.
Strange and it never seems to leak.

Also bled all brakelines today and put on new brake pads.

Wiped the engine bay clean.
