United-Kingdom Mini Cooper S R53 Checkmate seat overhaul

Does anyone have any experience of overhauling the driver's seat in an 06 R53 Cooper S. The seat is moving slightly under acceleration and breaking and it is a bit annoying. I've checked the floor fixings and they are sound. I can only guess that the seat position mechanism has worn over time with cornering and g-forces. I want to strip out the seat and check for wear and replace parts if necessary. Is this possible or do you have to replace the whole frame. I don't have a workshop manual but will no doubt have to buy one soon. Thanks in advance for any pointers.
