WOW. I just have to say THANK YOU to themadhatter for posting the instructions on how to take the seat apart to get to the seat base. My 2005 Murano drivers seat suddenly went "pop" last week, and the DSR came loose. I took it to a dealer here, and they said it would be a $900 fix. At the rear of the seat the weld had broken (the same as themadhatters). We decided to get a new base from Nissan (as one of the lift motors was having sporadic issues as well), but install it ourselves. It took my father and I about three hours start to finish, with no major issues, thanks to the instructions posted here!!
On the base issue, we notice that they have changed the design significantly. The welds on the old model were two half inch or so welds with a space in between. The new one is a sold piece, about three inchs long, welded all the way along. A couple of other portions of the base were beefed up too. Given that they obviously know there was a design flaw (cause they redesigned it!!) it seems like a giant rip off not to have this covered under a recall.
