Question about 2003 Volkswagen Eurovan

1 Answer

The passanger seat wont go all of the way back any more.

I believe the lever that allows the passenger seat to slide all of the way back has become disconnected or broken. Has anyone encountered this problem and know how to fix it?

Passenger seat won't lock in place


The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.

Ait bag warning light on, plus passenger seat doesnt fold forward correctly and difficult to get back in the correct position after letting passengers into the rear. 2002 cooper. thanks


Regarding the passenger seat, to allow someone into the back seat, push the seat back lever DOWN. This will flip the back of the seat forward and allow the seat to slide forward. Simply push firmly on the seat back (no need to touch the lever) and it will return to its original position.

If you pull the seat back lever UP, you can adjust the recline angle of the seat back. Pulling the lever UP will also let you fold the seat and slide it forward, however, it will not return to its original position.

Sorry, cannot solve your airbag question.

When someone sits in the passenger seat the air bag light comes on


Hi Edward your problem is probably the occupancy detector which is located in the passanger side front seat base.Its function is to detect wheather or not there is a passanger in the car.It will not allow the passanger air bag to deploy in the event of an accident if there is no passanger present.Unfortunately it cannot be repaired and will have to be replaced to do this remove the seat abd remove the seat cover and padding,[the detector is located in the seat base.
I would recommend that the air bag system is scanned to find out the fault before you buy a new detector.

Seat Position Cant be moved


The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.

If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.

If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.

Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.

If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.

Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side seat.

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.

How do i remove the front seats of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


On W-Body vehicles, the front seats are secured to the floorpan by two front hook attachments and two rear bolts installed to nuts welded to the floorpan.
The manually operated two-way front adjusters provides only fore and aft movement of the seat. When the seat adjuster handle located on the front seat is pulled up, the seat adjusters unlock, permitting travel of the seat. When the seat is in the desired position and the seat adjuster handle is released, the seat locks in place.
A power operated six-way seat adjuster is available. The adjusters are activated by three 12 volt, reversible, permanent magnet motors with a built-in circuit breaker. The motors are energized by a switch bolted on the seat side panel.
The three motors drive the front seat and rear vertical actuators and a horizontal actuator. When the adjusters reach the limit of travel, torque is absorbed through the rubber mounted grommets located between the motor and the support. An overload relay is provided in the circuit and will open should excessive stall be applied.
The optional 60/40 split bench front seats have seat back head restraints on the driver's and passenger's seat back. The head restraints are designed so they cannot be removed from the seat back without first inserting a small rounded tool inside the head restraint support tube to release the locking tab. The 60/40 split bench seat is equipped with a reclining mechanism on both the driver's and passenger's side. The recliner lever is located on the outboard side of the spring cushion. When the lever is pulled upward, the spring loaded dual linear reclining unit located in the cushion frame is released, allowing the seat back to be pushed rearward or allowing the spring loaded reclining unit to bring the seat back forward.
Bucket seats are equipped with manual reclining mechanisms. An optional six-way power seat adjuster is available. Some bucket seats are equipped with inertia seat back locks. This system allows the seat back to fold forward without requiring the occupant to release a locking lever or access to the rear seat area. During a sudden stop or deceleration, or if the front of the vehicle is nose down, the inertia system of the seat back lock will engage, holding the seat back in its rest position. A release lever is provided to allow manual release of the seat back lock when the vehicle is in the nose down position. The release lever is located at the lower rear outboard corner of the seat back.
Some W-Body vehicles (notably Pontiac coupes) have passenger front seats equipped with an E-Z Entry device. This is actuated, in an unoccupied seat, by completely folding the seat back forward disengaging the adjuster, and sliding the front seat forward to gain access to the rear seat area. To return the seat to its normal position, return the seat back to its rest position, and slide the entire seat rearward, engaging the adjuster.
W-Body rear seats are available in several styles including a rear seat with an integral child restraint device.

Stuck front passenger seat - wont slide back or forwards due to small screw lodged in floor runner


Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

A4 convertible drivers seat.


I have had the exact same problem , the actaual cause of the seat not sliding back is due to the small cable retaing clip which fastens at the underneath of the seat this is a very common problem and is very trickY to get to as you say the rear panel appers to need to come off , it does not, you axs the small clip from removeing the liners at the very bottom of the seat where there is a footwell light , when you axs this area you be able to get to the clip or the actaul cable ,to which ever is broken,,
