    place piece of painters or masking tape on either side of seat directly parallel to where the driver sits.....remove seat....using tape marks as reference and using heat gun(NOT hair dryer or propane torch) move the heat gun around the seat pan area that corresponds to your tape marks. use common sense! heat that specific area...flip seat over and immediately place that heated area atop large wooden block and exert downward pressure on both front and rear seat portions. do this process 2 or 3 times and it will restore the seat pan to original shape and configuration.

    let the arguments and nitpicking commence. should be very entertaining.
    I may try this with mine as my seat is kind of "floppy" and tends to come off without any effort. Kind of like an old man's teeth when he forgets to use Fixodent.

    Did someone remove the hooks? I’ve seen that done on some seats where the PO couldn’t figure out how to get the seat back on.
