Default Loose Seat - How Do I Fix?

So this weekend I'm giving my '85 a good Spring cleaning. While vacuuming, I lifted a little bit on the drivers seat and it came up! Not the frame of the seat, but the cover and padding. It's almost like the seat was recovered and reinstalled but not reattached to the seat frame. Is this a big deal? Is it difficult to fix? Sheesh. It's always something...

:confused:

On mine, the seat pad is held in by gravity and a small wire catch on the lower front edge. The wire fits into a roll of the sheet metal and can be taken out very easily.

There is nothing to permenantly hold it in place.

I'll have to have a look to see if I have a wire catch to attach to the seat frame. Thanks for the input! :seeya
