Default Drivers Seat Loose....How to tighten?

Last night I noticed that my drivers seat is loose at the front left corner. This is causing the whole thing to rock fore and aft constantly. I can see the bolt that needs to be tightened but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it. The bolt comes up from inside the channel of the seat rail and goes into a captured nut on top of the seat frame. I can see no way to get a wrench in there. Any ideas?

This is one of about four little problems with the car in the first 2800 miles. A bit of a drag to say the least. I am going to drop by a local dealer tomorrow and see if they will fix it while I wait. As it seems to me to be a saftey issue I hope they will work me in. I bought the car out of town and will be looking for a dealer to do my service. This might be a good test of who wants the business.

Thanks-

Tom

Default Dealer Fixed the Prob

Just got the car back from the dealer today. I drove by Friday hoping they could fix it on the spot but no luck. On the up side they also fixed my trunk which would not close. (I had not opened it since getting it to close finally the day I took delivery three months ago.) I was also having a brake vibration problem that they CNDed (Could Not Duplicate) at first. I told them to get the brakes warmed up and stoping at a moderate or greater rate. They felt the vibration the second time out but I needed the car back so the repairs will have to wait two weeks for the 3500 mile service. That was my plan originally but the seat thing was a problem I couln't live with.

Cheers-

Tom
