Question about Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Malibu Maxx. I have electric seats and when I sit down in the drivers seat the right side goes down. What could possibly be the problem? Is it an easy fix?

    I have a 2005 Malibu and after inspection I was informed that the seat frame needs to be replaced. The quoted price is $900 for the replacement frame & $700 for labour. I'm in Canada so that may account for the higher prices but needless to say I'm looking for a better solution too.

    My 2006 malibu frame boke just yesterday in the right front coner, est cost $800 to $900. suggested to have someone weld it. poor design or welding with not much to weld to! hard to see how it held so long. Dealer will give somekind of loyalty-bought it there discount. seat manufacturer should have it in his car and it would quickly be corrected!

    I have the same problem on the right rear side - feels like I am in a low-rider car! My brother says it is probably one of the wheels that moves the seat forward and back that has broken - have to take it in yet - just not looking forward to a huge bill.

    My 2004 Malibu LS 6-way dtivers side left reat side has broken. $900 is the quoted range to repkace it. I will try to get it welded and then shop salvage sites for a replacement if that fails. BTW, this seat was repaired 2X under warranty for other malidys.

The weld has broken on the seat. Take the seat out and find a welder. Thats the only fix. Seems to be very common with this car.

I have several issues with my 2004 chevy malibu. My first one is when I turn my wheel no matter if its right or left its makes a loud squeaky sound and the last is that my driver seat leans on the right...


If you have power seats the seat adjusters are made from aluminum and they do bend.They are non repairable
Check all bushings on the suspension for wear

I had the same problem with my 2005 malibu vehicle. To find out the welds they use under the seat to connect the steel brackets are not that strong and snap leaving the seat at an angle position.The best bet is to look under the seat at the side thats angled down and look for a long metal pipe with a U shape it might look a little rusted.If this is so you need to find a welder to reweld the two pieces.
