Uncomfortable Driver Seat
My driver seat feels uncomfortable lately. Wallet in or out the left side of my leg and butt cheek gets numb. Never experiences this before. Also the center cloth keeps bunching up when I get out. I'm a big guy but the foam isn't flat. I'm lost but it makes driving not enjoyable. They are bucket seats with the vinyl sides and the mesh center.

Anyone have the same issue. It has 28000 miles. I drive maybe 1.5 hours a day.

I figured it out. I pulled off the snaps from the back of the seat cover. Lifted that up and noticed the seat foam was sticking out over the spring and this retainer bar. Lifted up the mesh covering, and behold, the left side of the foam on the cushion popped out of the retainer bar. The right side was fine. The cushion seems to get its "cushioning" from being curved and stuffed behind the bar. I put it back in identical to the right. replaced the covering, and there was support in my left cushion once again.

I don't know if there is something torn in the foam that is causing it to pop out on that side, but it feels like a new seat. If it happens again I'll have to go to the dealer and see if they have a better solution. My rear was going numb because the there was no support. Also when I put the foam back behind the retainer. The material filled up and stopped bunching.

Glad to hear you got it all sorted out. I spend a whack of seat time in my Ram and the seats are best.
