    We have a Rapido 983M and the front swivel seats are very stiff.
    It requires a sh*t load of effort to get them to turn.
    The thing is there's no obvious place to lubricate the mechanism and the Raapido manual doesn't shed any light.
    Anybody else had this problem and found a way to solve it?

    Could try WD40 instead, sh*t tends to thicken as it dries:Doh:
    Sorry , wasn't much help but couldn't resist that one!
