Repairs Save Lots of Money

Nissan Murano Seat Bracket welded

Some shops just replace parts while others will repair parts when possible. We recently had such a situation at our shop which saved our client a substantial amount of money.

The vehicle was a 2006 Nissan Murano with a broken driver’s seat. Our client was driving his vehicle when he suddenly heard a loud crack and the rear of his seat sunk.

Removing the seat and examining it revealed the cause: the cross bar at the rear of the seat had broken on the left side. Two repair options were available: one was to buy a new seat bracket assembly from a Nissan dealer and the other was to dismantle the assembly and weld the bracket back together. Costs for the new part with installation were over $1000.00 but repairs could be done for $350.00. Fortunately this is an all steel part and very weldable. Our client opted for the weld repair and during the process we added some extra metal to reinforce what was a very poorly designed and inherently weak part.

While some jobs require replacing a complete assembly, repairs like this, where possible can save hundreds of dollars and we love to do that whenever we can.
