Foam Inside Seat?

Recommended Posts

I have a 95 ES300 and the drivers seat is loosing it's shape and support from age and use. I've tried several kinds of padding to add to the inside of the seat, but I still feel the lumbar support very hard against my back.

I thought I would try adding the original cushion padding between the flat lumbar support and my back. Does anyone know the name and where I might find the original cushion material?

Thanx, Nick

I have no idea what is used I would talk to an seat repair shop. They should be able to tell you.

In fact, seeing a seat repair shop is a good advice, you can 'feel' the differences in foam used.

Usually, Polyfoam is used in seat upholstry. It comes in 'closed-' and 'open cell' density formats. You can lookup the differences, where 'open cell' provides more comfort and 'closed cell' more firmness and upholding it's profile much longer.

I suggest you don't choose the original stuff (I suspect open cell polyfoam), but select a suitable polyfoam that's more firm. It also has firmness grades to choose from.
