09 175txw seat posts
« on: January 06, 2018, 03:06:15 PM »

Help please! I can't get my pedestals out , they are Springfield seat posts. Tried pulling straight up and tried unscrewing but to no avail. Don't want to cut carpet to remove base, what am I doing wrong?

Spray some kroil in it if you can. Use some large channel locks and unscrew more. Might not have unscrewed enough.

That year doesnít screw in. When I bought my 06. I had the same problem. The first owner never took it out, under a covered dock. On a lift. It was rusted in. Took a lot of penetrating oil, and a impact hammer. From the bottom, after taking that front section of deck off.

Take the bow panel off. And youíll find I think itís 12 screws in the carpet. Flip it over and a drift punch and hammer should work. Once itís out run a wire pipe cleaner though the base. And sand off the post pin, and your good as new. There is a hose on the bottom for rain water. It will get kinked. In my case. Then water will just sit in it.

After you get it out and cleaned, spray some Alumi-Slick in the hole. Alumi-Slick is for sliding glass door tracks. Available at Home Depot or Lowes

Mine were not stuck but if these are the slip in like mine just a heads up. Once you get the post out.
1. Be very careful not to use anything that will take the material out of the base. If you do keep it very very minimal. You want the post to be fairly snug. Not tight but not loose either or the seat will wobble. A very small amount of play at the base can turn into considerable wobble at seat height.
2. My seat posts made groaning and awkward noises at times when swiveled. I posted somewhere asking about this and was directed to try paraffin. Needless to say paraffin is clean and almost no mess. Much much easier to get a few shavings of wax up than oils. Just clean the post stem that gets inserted into the base. Rub paraffin liberally over the post and insert. Mine has been quiet ever since I did one coating. I like the fact its not oily and doesn't run anywhere. Last its very cheap.  :)
