    Default Caterham Seat Frames, Failures?

    I was wondering if anyone has experienced a seat frame failure for this style seat:

    If someone has photos of a seat like this torn down that would be great! I think there may be a weld failure in part of the seat frame that I need to sort out.

    Quite a few times over the years from on track G forces. Very common - its not just me or you. They are not the sturdiest of seat frames. Peel it all apart and weld the frame back up.

    Sorry - don't have photos of one disassembled.
