Replacing the bushings is only a temporary fix due to the poor design of the seat adjustment mechanism. They will break again. There are more permanent DIY fixes on internet forums.

Both left and right front compliance bushings are cracked - the driver side is cracked all the way through. The car sounds like an old jalopy when driving on uneven gravely roads or terrain.
