    Not to sound like a total whining weenie, but does anyone else have problems with their driver side lumbar seat? If I move around certain ways I feel a crunching or popping of the plastic lumbar bag or whatever it is.

    Do you think they will replace my seat?

    The truck only has 1500 miles on it. My other Taco started doing it after 2 years, not 2 months.:mad:

    I've had no problems, but I am a light midget.

    I'd take it to dealer and see what they say. It's possible it was an installation or manufacturing defect.

    Without physically feeling/seeing it, we can't really comment.

    Well I leave for the North Carolina shore this weekend... So I'll have a nice 6 hour ride to piss me off. I'm sure I'll be at the dealership shortly afterwards.

    The seats in these Tacomas are the biggest piece of sh*t I have ever sat in, they squeak, pop, rattle and the cloth has wrinkles in it after you sit in it. I dont understand how everyone is so happy with there Tacomas. The longer I own mine the less I like it. They need to start making them in Japan where they can be engineered and built better. I have a 2002 Lexus made in Japan with over a 100,000 miles on it and it is 10 times the vehicle this truck is. I may have to trade it in on a Raptor in 2017.

    The lumbar support in my truck fades now. I have to readjust it in order to get it to feel the support.

    I am just starting to have the same problem.
    I thought it was just me! I've owned my truck for 3 months. It was basically new eventhough it's a 2017. Only had 42 miles on it.
    Did you get it fixed?

    Mostly stock with a few minor mods.
    Could it be the pressure pad for the headrest restraint system? There is a squarish metal plate right about belt level in the seatback. I started to feel mine through the seat shortly after purchasing the truck. It is a contraption that compresses if your body presses into it. I removed it and have no regrets. The lumbar area of the seat is much more comfortable without it. You can get to it by lifting the fabric on the back of the seat and removing a couple 10mm nuts. I do think there was a steel wire I had to cut to fully get it out. I'd check this out if you're getting noise and discomfort from the lumbar area of your seat.
