Default Pls Help. 2001 EX Seat Issue

I've 2 door 2001 Accord with 8-way power driver seat that is wobbly. I checked the track and it is bolted solid to the floor. Might be the motor track or something else. It is whole seat that wobble not just the back. I had airbag serviced recently for recall by dealer. Any ideas? What's broken? Thank you.

To fix it, you need to install shims on the seat base, shims are available through Honda.

See this Honda technical service bulletin:

K, I'll order shims. The seat wobbles front to back and not side to side. Can there be front bushing on the seat frame?

Yeah, right... (sarcastic, rolls eyes...)
