I have a 2022 RX Sport.

The small section, bottom of the seat right behind the helm keeps falling in. We were running pretty good, hit a wave my passenger and seat bottom fell into the storage area. Just a bit embarrassing.

Has any one else had this issue and if so any thoughts to make it better. It looks like the back edge is not catching the support enough. We have already had the dealer move the front cleat under the seat forward to give it more pressure towards the back. That helped a some but I just realized not enough.

Have any pics? What about comparison pic of another seat that DOESN'T fall in to see what the difference is. Sorry you're having trouble, first time I've heard of this one!

Are you talking the lower backrest in ”front” of the helm??

I have not seen another one to compare it to yet.

It is the lower seat not the back rest.

I have a fix in mind, I need to get more support under the back edge where it meets the long side of the back rest.

Why wouldn't the dealer order a new seat ? I had a seat replaced for a crooked seam . Are your batteries under that seat ? The seat above my batteries has a plastic piece for extra support.

No This is the small bottom piece right in front of the helm. This part of the seat pulls off then you can raise the back piece for some great storage.
The dealer adjusted the brace in front so the seat would push back farther but it is not enough. My thoughts are there is so much padding in the bottom and back seat it doesn't allow the bottom seat to catch the back structure enough. Not a very good design in my opinion.

Get well soon. My family had it. Wife and daughter no more then a day or 2 with allergy symptom's. My son and I got it 2 months later and he was sick for a few days. Took me about 4 months to get rid of a nasty cough.
