If you can reach under the seat there is a cable running off the seat release handle, pull on it and see if you can get the seat to slide.

Right front seat recline all the way back and will not come up. What can I do?


Move back and forth the black lever. Put some downpressure on seat. Sounds like the spring is stuck and wont disengage.

Front drivers seat will not slide back and forth.


No, check for a blockage in the seat track. You have one power source for all seat functions. If it works one way but not the others it is either a bad switch, or bad motor, or a blockage.

Hi; I have a 280 SLK, 2007. The driver seat does not move back and forth and seems to be stuck. The right side of the seat moves (and hence skews forward) but the left side remains stuck. Perhaps...


Just repaired that same problem on my the old ladys 2007 slk 280. Found flexible cable similar to that of a speedometer cable pulled out of end of seat motor. Feel around underneath seat towards back of seat for loose end of flex cable and simply slip it back in the slot at the end of motor

Driver seat is stuck all the way back.


Sounds like you have something stuck in the seat track look under the seat with a flash light to see if any thing binding the seat from moveing or if something looks broken and is stuck in the track spray with WD40 that will also help then work it back and forth until it starts moveing freely

How do i remove the drivers seat in my 99 chevy silverado? I need to figure out why my seat will not slide back and forth when I pull on the seat adjust lever.


Probablyt because the little wire cable that activates the release mechanisms on both sliders is broken, and therefor only allowing only one slider to release when you activate the seat adjusting lever, and leaving the other one engaged, preventing you from moving your seat. This is relatively easy to diagnose, if you know what to look for... Just try to see what all moves when you press your lever. See if there is a wire cable that is activated anywhere under your seat it should be relativley close to your lever and run across the open space to the opposite slider.

My passenger seat won't lock into position. It slides back and forth as I drive and the bar that you pull on to move it back and forth is stuck in the up position.


There is a spring that pull's the handle back to lock position that might be broke or the locking mechanism might be gummed up.the spring can't be bought seperatly so check a hardware store or replace the seat track assembly.

Driver seat not moving back and forth


under the seat is a thin wire that goes from one side to the other it has most likely broke you need to find the secondary lock it was connected to and release it to move the seat but you must also release the main lock so i suggest replacing the wire . THIS IS FOR MANUEL SEATS 
now as for power seats you will have to locate the power lead wire and make sure it is not broke if so you can replace the connecter with an aftermarket one and it may work again

'07 Chevy Tahoe 3rd Row seat will not fold down


I have had this problem, and I am having it again. The problem is if a little trash gets under the bar in the floor, it will keep the mechanism from locking completely. I had tried everything. The only solution so far is the rock back and forth. Real pain. I am trying to find a secret release.
