Default Seat adjustment malfunction

I have a Ranger 2011 621 with front barrel seats. Lately, the drivers seat has been slowly collapsing. I understand there's some type of air/compression cyclinder located in the pedastal, which I believe is bad. Worked fine last year.
How do I go about removing and replacing this component?

Thanks, Jim

Replace the defective pedestal post.

But, better yet, replace the entire seat support assembly with a hydraulic spring seat assembly.

Purchase one that has at least 10 inches of seat movement to support you as you go through waves and rough areas. Your back will applaud your efforts every time that you sit in the seat and go somewhere in your boat.

=====================
these seat supports are expensive, but not as expensive as a single back operation after you have crushed a disk from hitting a bit wave in rough water.



If you have spent $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on your boat and motor, what is spending $$$$$$$$$ on seat supports to give you shock mitigation during movement over big water and waves in your $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ boat and motor.

Good luck
