[s-cars] Lower back deflation

Don't neglect to post out on the Audiworld D2 forum.  I just pulled my
_rear_ seatback in prep for a tint job and can see nothing resembling a
bladder in the lumbar area.  I suspect the //S8 lumbar support mechanism is
not unlike that of the UrS6 albeit with an electric motor rather than a knob
for adjustment.

Either way I am of no use in your quest for a repair other than to suggest
again, post to Audiworld.



95.5 UrS6 sold
'03 //S8 bought

Thanks for the input, Taka and Larry.  I'll report back if I run into
anything noteworthy.
