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
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.
