REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT
Repair of drivers and personnel seat cushion and backrest consists of replacing the covers, webbing loops, and pads.
Refer to FM 10-16 and the following instructions:
Open full length of cover closure seam.
Remove foam pad(s) from cover.
Stitch webbing loop(s) to cover as outlined in step e. Stitch in rectangular pattern with crossing diagonal pattern in
center of rectangle.
Install foam pad(s) in cover.
Stitch closure seam by lockstitching. Use 5 to 7 stitches per inch (2.54 cm). Maintain thread tension so there is no
loose stitching and lock is embedded in center of material. Trim all thread ends. When restitching, take care that
original needle holes are well covered and that replacement stitching does not fall directly on original stitch lines.
All external parts of cushion or backrest will be the same color.
