Hi all. My lumbar support inflates well, but slowly deflates over about 60 minutes.
What is required to remove the lumbar support air bag and tubing? Is there a part that regularly fails that I should look at first?
Thx

I haven't really heard of a failure on these systems. I would start by removing the seat from the car and tracing the hose back from the bulb/valve unit into the seatback. I suspect you will find a fault at the valve or along the hose.

i couldn't get mine out even with my seats upside down in my living room. The bladder seems glued to the frame but i don't know that for sure. Anyway, the plastic hose disintegrated. i replaced it with silicone vacuum hose, superglued and zip tied around the barbs of the bladder and bulb. Likely your hose is cracked

After submerging the bulb and hose into soapy water, it appears the bulb is leaking air from the valve at the end of it. Wondering the best place to pick one of these up that isn't 'Lotus Priced' :)
