My RV-10 is pushing 12 years old and the right seat has always been difficult to slide but not an issue until my wife had wanted to learn to fly. I’ve tried various lubricants but sense the real issue is a slight misalignment of the seat rails. Has anyone found a way to tweak these or any other solutions?

Thanks,
Marcus

I seem to recall the same issue - right seat hard to move, especially when fully aft. I loosened the rail fasteners in the aft end, and the seat motion was much better. I shimmed as needed, re-tightened the bolts. I cannot recall exactly where I put the shims, but it may have been the supporting structure that extends aft and looks like an inverted ‘L’.

In case anyone is counting, mine is 13 years old and exactly the same problem. It seems to have gotten worse recently but I haven’t yet really addressed it. I’ll be watching to see if others have come up with good solutions.

If so, as suggested add shims as necessary. If not bowed, then clean out the crud in the guides.

Marcus, the best way to see if your rails are un-parallel is to use a couple of straight edges across the front and back of the rails. This little process is known as "using winding sticks". Google it and you'll see how simple it is (old woodworking trick).
I did that when I built my -10 and soon found where a shim(s) were needed. My seats slide perfectly.

Thanks Rick.
My plan was to do that but wasn’t sure if there was any play allowance in the rails. From my dim recollection there really wasn’t any.
