Hi all

AL has developed an interesting issue.  When moving the front seats they seem to grate with a metal on metal sound.  I cant remember them ever doing that before and bearing in mind that the metal aspects are quite old, (1986).  I wondered whether the rollers will have gone or something like that.  Anyone else have this issue and have solved it?  

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, when I started flying around with Big Bertha. 🤦‍♀️

— Sounds like you are hearing a bearing that has failed on one of the rollers. I would pull the seat and inspect them.

Here was a thread on replacing the seat tracks and included @kortopates discussing replacing the rollers on his Encore. LASAR carries the rollers for $9.25 each - p/n 14004-000.

I had the same problem and bought 8 new rollers from LASAR and installed myself with signoff. Even though I didn't like the price, it was well worth it.
