    JD 4 Series seat seperating

    The seat cushion on my JD 4052R has partially detached from the back housing. See Pics. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and how did you fix it? I was going to clean the glue residue off the mating surfaces and try to re-glue the cushion to the back housing. None of the following agents helped clean the glue off either surface: Goo-Gone, Alcohol (Rubbing type not the Jack Daniels type), Lacquer thinner, paint thinner. Any ideas what might clean that glue off so that I can re-glue the cushion? And what glue would be best to re-glue the cushion to the back? Thanks for your suggestions!! Jeff O

    I've seen people drill through the cushion and the seatback and use zipties to hold it together.

    I have a 2002 tractor. The seat eventually wore out and separated like that. I ended up just replacing it.

    That would be a warranty item, but I suspect you are out of warranty unless you took out the extended warranty. You might see if your dealer will help you on this.

    If this was my seat, I would absolutely fix this with shoe goo. It’s one of the best damn adhesives out there and has many more uses than fixing shoes. I’ve used it for years and when it comes to repairs on things that flex, it performs better than any epoxies I have tried it up against:

    I had a similar separation occur on the 3320 seat. It may be the same as yours.

    I cleaned the mating surfaces with acetone and applied some daps of Gorilla glue at about 2" intervals. That was probably three years ago and the seat has been fine ever since.

    Thanks AJgrn78! I see Shoe Goo is available at Lowes, Walmart and a host of other bigger stores. Seems like it might do the trick after I get the old glue removed. Jeff O

    I've used it for many repairs and i swear by it, particularly in any application with flexing. Good luck!

    Thanks to everyone who posted suggestions! I ended up cleaning as much of the old glue off as I could with Acetone (which didn't really take much off) and then used the Shoe Goo that was suggested. I clamped the cushion to the back with several adjustable clamps and let the glue dry over night. Took the clamps off next morning and the seat has held fine. Sorry I didn't take pics of the clamping method I used but wasn't thinking about pics at the time, just getting the job done! Again.... Thanks to All. Jeff O
