The backrest on my 345 seat cushion is separated from the frame. Has anyone else had a similar problem? What adhesive did you use to fix it?

Almost all do that. I never found a glue (Shoe-Goo, construction adhesive, fabric adhesive and others) that never lasted more than a short time on my 345 and finally put a replacement on I bought at a farm store. I did have to fabricate a bracket to make the seat switch work. Roger

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll see if I can save it or replace it if need be.

Yep, my seat is doing that too. And the broken, hardened pieces of glue or whatever fall out every time I lift the seat to fuel the tractor up.

I considered a JD seat cover as a temporary solution, for cosmetic purposes only, but the seat is pretty low on the priority list of projects.

I asked in another thread how guys repair splits and tears in tractor seats. None were what I would call acceptable to me (but all solutions were serviceable for a while). Bottom line, tractor seats seem to be a wear item like brake shoes and when they get tattered, cover them with something or replace them with aftermarket seats. Too bad Recaro doesn't make tractor seats. :LOL:

Thanks for the replies. I’m going to list it for sale and you know how some buyers can be. They’ll want me to take 700 dollars off the price because of the seat, lol!

That's pretty much what I did. I just sold it and the new buyer wasn't concerned.
