Lumbar support goes out?

I got in my car to go to work and when I leaned back in my seat I heard a faint pop and now my lumbar support doesn't work. I would like to fix if possible. Has this happened to anyone else? Any help is appreciated.
Thanks guys

Start looking on eBay, or other online stores. Sounds like the bladder in the lumbar cushion broke. Not too tough to fix, except for dealing with the upholstery.

I don't understand why they use air? I think it would be so much easier for Ford designers and us customers if it was a mechanical lumbar design.
Ill start looking online but does anyone have any clue what a new bladder would cost?

Actually no I shouldn't. I believe I have an extended 60k mile warranty. How would I go about checking that?

Take it to your dealer. They will let you know. And that will fall under your bumper to bumper not powertrain lol. It's usually 36k/3 years

I get that. If you look around, you can find some smokin' deals on seats. Hell, replacing the seats would be less work than replacing the lumbar support.
