    I'm having a problem with the spring tension release on the pedestal. I wanted to move the seat to a different location in the boat but when you push the release, it moves like it should but for some reason doesn't come loose from the seat base. I don't know if it's just a sticky mechanism or is broke inside. I thought about replacing it but thought this might become a recurring problem I don't want in the future. Would changing it over to a seat and base combo that the pedestal just drops into the base be better or what? Any suggestions would be appreciated as this is my first experience with this sort of thing. Thanks.

    Try spraying some WD 40 in it and see if it frees up. :confused2:
