I've got a 2015 TI, purchased used so no warranty. One of my vantage seat back angle adjusters stopped working recently. I opened it up to see what was going on. There is a 1/4" shock cord inside that is supposed to be attached by a loop held together with a hog ring on the left side (as you are facing forward) and then around to a pulley on the right side and back down to a plastic ratchet strip. The loop on mine came undone and I'm not sure how I can repair it. The loop wraps around SS pin below the pulleys on the left side and is VERY hard to access. My only thought at this time is to drill a hole in adjustment mechanism and secure the end of the cord there by passing it through the hole and tying a stopper knot on the outside. Any other thoughts? Has anyone else had their seat adjusters quit working?

The boat has a two year warranty. Have your dealer file a claim and they should be able to get this fixed for you.
