The driver's seat of our 5 door 53 plate 206 is broken. The seat tilts back. Looking under the seat we can see two arms, one either side, that have become detached from the bottom of the seat. It looks like they were riveted to the seat but there is no sign of the broken rivets. Has anyone seen this before and can it be fixed cheaply without replacing the seat?

Consideration of space is not taken into account in the below,

You are most likely right about it being a rivet. If you're going to try anything, try 8.8gr structural bolt with nylon locking nut, it's a pivot point so do not overtighten. You need to use a nylon bushing to match the existing bush recess on the welded plug and place this along the shaft of the bolt. It may need nylon washers to pivot, or may not, trial and error (or looking at another existing one) will determine that and right tightening pressure, below snug most likely 1-5 nm (as a guess baseline).

Apart from this advice above which trying to reproduce what I think the rivet did, you may be able to source a chair from a wrecker or parts recycler. Particularly consider the replacement option, if you can't reproduce the rivet assembly, as it will wear through the pivot arm if you don't get it right or have enough space for a new assembly to work correctly.

Hope you find this helpful.
