944 Seat back question...What's up?

Hi, This question is about the seat back on my 944 S2 Cab. I have seen pictures of several other 944's with the same problem so maybe you guys know an easy fix.
The center padded section of the seat that is fitted with the perforated leather is completely pulling away from the seat to the point I can see the springs exposed behind it (left and right side of it). I see it is attached on top and bottom, but before I tear it apart, what keeps the sides attached to the seat? My guess is that some glue has come undone as I don't see any stitching on either side. Not a big deal to fix huh?

No, not really. He is recovering the seat insert and did not the show doing the back from what I saw. The seat insert is sewed in to the sides, the back seems to be independent of the bolsters although I'm not sure how or why.

Here is the problem...
As stated earlier the center panel is firmly attached at the top and bottom but not on either side. This is happening to both seats.

There should be hog rings that attach that to wires that run around the edge of the seat.
