I was applying the parking break and the lumbar support seemed to give way, i heard a ratcheting kind of noise and now the lumbar has no support. It feels like the support bar is moving but not far enough forward to give the needed support. I also would love if someone knew how to take the seat apart could explain how to get to the lumbar system. THANKS

Re: Drivers seat lumbar.
Erasy to reapi a seat just remove from vehicle and strip the covers off most are rachet and pawl but if you cant fix it get a welder and weld it into the optimum position that you want then replace the cushions and covers

lumbar on the driver seat
Shawn, Its cable driven plastic plate. It can possibly be repaired once you disassemble it and can see it, if not repairable you can replace the lumbar. Check the attached links,forums with instruction and guides, Good luck

That connector is for the lumbar support in the seat. The wires are as follows:
Black - Ground, ends at left side under the dash.
Red and Black - Power to circuit fromk fusible link
Yellow and Green - Lumbar support, Push out
Red and Yellow - Lumbar support, Release in
Yellow and Blue - Side lumbar support, Spread out
Yellow, Should be Yellow and White- Side lumbar support, Close in
For the years around 2001 with those seats (00-03 I believe) they have a plastic lumbar adjuster in the back of the seat. I can't seem to find anyone who sells it even the dealer. All I could suggest is try and get a crappy used seat (perferably a passenger seat because they are used less) and swap it out or just get another drivers seat if you don't want to hassle with it. It's not that easy to change. I've tried to repair mine a few times. It kept failing. I'm going to try it again and this time move the stress point to a different location so this hopefully won't happen again.
