Apparently the seat is only latched on the left side (not in the centre as with the later 900's), and there's meant to be a spring-loaded release rod with a knob poking out through the carpet under the seat. The knob is missing, and the rod was 'floating' under the seat (still attached to the mechanism). Will be taking some pics to put in the galleries to show the difference between the two securing methods!
