Good luck for Monday !
What do you mean juddering? Under heavy acceleration mine had some rattles, hope the deadening mod will fix it.I wrote earlier, that I have no problems with the car, but it developed juddering under heavy acceleration. Calling dealer tomorrow. Car has around 4200 miles now.
How much push back did you get on this? My top seems to be rubbing against the roll bar covers when it's down and the fabric has started to tear.Dealer also ordered new roof and roll bar covers as there was a bit of rubbing, been 3 months, they still don't have the parts. FIAT Service/Cust.support is a joke.
They are the ones who suggested this as the ONLY Fix. Ordered parts end of May. They are still waiting on parts. Just called dealer a few min ago, parts are supposed to arrive today, but not receivedHow much push back did you get on this?

Found it (with my eyes). I’ll sleep better tonight.It is precisely where your lower extremeties can bump it getting in or out of the car. Left knee area when you're sitting in the driver's seat, but alone on its own down below the row of other buttons. Given the existence of the trunk lid's button, disconnecting this one might be a fine idea for me to do! When I mean to open the trunk, I use the trunk lid button too! ...And if any model(s) lack this button, good for y'all! 🤣
Do a search for the post titled Saddle Seat Repair.i've had the car for a few months, perhaps a few months and a half -- 2018 with 13k miles on the clock. the driver's side seat's upper bolster wears easily, or at least the previous owner got in and out of the car rubbing against the same area over and over again so as to rub away the coating as well as the coloring of the saddle brown leather and leave a few black marks.
i had to take the car to the dealership a week ago because it was idling very roughly and would often stall. i took a peek under the hood but couldn't see anything obviously wrong. a CEL came on and it turned out to be related to the MAF because a clip connecting a hose to the air filter box had cracked and the seal was creating an ever so small vacuum leak. at least they were able to find it quickly enough and i didn't have to wait for any parts to be ordered as they miraculously had the part in stock.
we'll see if any more problems pop up, but hopefully not. i'm trying to prevent additional wear onto the seat by contorting my body when getting out to avoid the damaged areas and for whatever reason the worn areas are black -- i wouldn't have guessed that as when the leather wore in a previous vehicle of mine it was lighter than the dyed leather and so it made dying it over again much easier. not much you can do with a black spot in terms of dye.
