my lumbar bladder is leaking slowly after I pump it up. :(

Anyone ever have this issue?

It's probably not covered under gmpp major guard but there's maybe a slim chance since it is motor driven?..

you guys that work at dealers, any feedback is appreciated..

I have the same problem too and wish there was a DIY fix. Hope somebody knows how...

It's mechanical. Sounds like the gearing maybe stripped as it's just plastic setup. :)

I was thinking it would be some sort of sealing issue with the pump/bladder hose connections. I haven't tried to break the seat apart yet to find out. Maybe some glue or tape in the right place will solve it.

I guess if the internal pump components are damaged the only fix is to replace.

I believe it's a mechanical roller setup, not an air bladder. Major Guard should cover it because it's a mechanical defect, and not a trim or cosmetic item.

You might be able to make it a safety issue stating that it puts you in a certain position to drive or not.

Mine's "leaking" too. Had almost convinced myself that it was normal until this thread started. Thanks for the heads-up. Since I'm still under main warranty I'll take it to the dealer next week and see what they have to say.

Hmmm....maybe I can do it the same day I have the "limo tint" removed, made necessary by the nice policeman giving me a ticket for it.:)
