  • E4 Lounge Seat Backrest

    2017 E4.

    We had the backrest about 90% "down" in the forward position - toward the bow with folks facing the stern - when someone slipped and fell onto it. It made a nice crack noise. The backrest and the electric actuator still work, but the port side of the backrest is definitely looser than the starboard side - probably about 2-3 inches of play. Of course, I would love people to tell me that there is only on actuator on the starboard side and there is always play that I never noticed because I never tried, but I am fairly certain he broke something in there when he fell on it.

    I popped the engine compartment cover to see if I could access the mechanism from the underside, but no luck. Does anyone have any idea how I get access to look around and see what is what?

    What a bummer!! I will be down at our slip later this week and I'll check to see how much play we have in ours. I feel like there is a little play but to be honest I don't think it's 2-3 inches. Maybe 1/2" at the most if my memory serves me correctly. Could be there is only one actuator and possibly a support bracket is what broke on the port side when he fell on it??

      Thanks. I am hoping it is not a big issue - particularly since the closest dealership is an hour an a half away. But I am also being realistic.
