Thanks Steve. That's exactly what I need to know.

The AD is not terminated by installation of a different or better seat rail. So it will still apply as long as you own the airplane.
However, the seat rails sold by McFarlane Aviation (www.mcfarlaneaviation.com) are sturdier than the ones sold by Cessna.
I would call McFarlane when you order the seat rail and ask them to include the information related to replacing the rivets that secure the rail with screws. It's a common change and makes change the rails much easier and quicker, but it must be done in accordance with the printed instructions.

McFarlane has replacements, but I see this verbiage in the AD: (ii) Replacement of the seat rail does not terminate the repetitive actions required in paragraph
(g) of this AD.

Steve Ells will know more and will likely comment soon.

Best,
Jen

Just went through the required 100 hour inspection of my 172 seat tracks. We did find slight witness line cracks in the rail but they were in spec. Is there some other STC'd track that I can buy which will do away with this 100 hour inspection? I would just as soon replace a cracked seat rail, and would preferably like a better mousetrap....
