Bench seat spring steel wire

The spring steel wire that runs across the bottom of my bench seat from one side of the tracks to the other side broke. It releases the seat so you can move it forward and back. It's to short to bend. Does anyone know where I can find this spring steel wire? Im located in the Minneapolis, MN area.

I don't think it's anything special - I had to repair mine when it broke. I just used baling wire you can get at any h/w store.

x2 on what jim said, its not anything special.

Go to the HW store and you can buy this green plastic coated flexible wire meant for a clothesline in a roll, it works excellent for this application. can be found in the picture hanging section or with the clothes line stuff.

I wouldn't recommend the stranded picture hanging wire though, over time it will stretch.

Re: Bench seat spring steel wire

I bought a used one off Ebay. I know I know but there are little bends in the ends and it works as it should

Mine was for 64 bench . They are different for 68 up I think
