Seat loose

My Amg 55 drivers seat seems to have some play in it. I notice it mostly when I get in the car as it doesnt feel solid (it has a small amount of fowards and backward movement) and it is bugging me. Anyone else experienced this? Know how to fix it?

Cheers

I removed and partially disassembled and re torqued the seat (I'm on my phone, you can search for my threads).
But you likely want to start with new seat to floor bolts or at least re torque them.
Note that a little play is normal in the seat back mechanism.
