Drivers Seat Panel Problem

For some reason I cannot get a picture or a link to show the part.

This outer finish panel under the driver seat. On Acadias and Enclaves (and probably Traverses) this part is subject to breaking when the seat is occupied by a "heavier:" driver. I have received the new part and think that I need to reinforce it before installing. The back of the top has a channel where a 1/4" square (or round) piece would fit. This piece would need to be epoxied to the seat part.


My question is whether I should use flexible epoxy or would standard "hard" epoxy be OK. My inclination is that flexible should be used. That type of epoxy is expensive at about $24 per 8 ounce.

As I sit here typing this I am beginning to think it is dumb to even be questioning the spending of the $24.

Part no. 12 in the 5th diagram down.


Same as part no. 13 in the first diagram, which is the passenger sear.

Have not done any work. Just ordered the part and trying to decide how to reinforce the part before installation.

I think that if it is not reinforced there is good chance it will break again.

I am not going to do the work anyway. I have a favorite private shop here that does any non-warranty work for me. Just too much standing for me. I am about to have a knee replacement in 3 weeks and this 82 year old body has too many other problems.
