Try using a slim cushion to place behind your back when driving. If you have lower vertebra issues such as I do, then you might find this helps. Also the driving position is important.
You should sit with your arms and hands at the 10:10 position, roughly inline with your pecks and with your elbows slightly bent.
Your neck should be relatively straight and you should try to avoid slouching or leaning too much on one side.

Is there a way to manually get my power seat to recline 2002 lincoln towncar

If the switch is bad, you can bypass it with a power and ground wire to the motor. If the motor is bad, you have to find it and disassemble it and turn it by hand. Usually the motor is at the back, bottom of the seat. Power seats are a pain in the rear. I pull the seats out to fix them, even this can be a major pain.

2012 honda cvcc headrest

I had the same problem with mine and already having a herniated disc in my neck didn't help. What I did was unzip the back of the seat cover and insert some foam into the back of the seat. This pushed the front of the seat out just enough to keep the headrest from pushing my head forward. It only cost a few dollars and you can't tell by looking at the seat that I did anything at all to it. Now it's very comfortable and my neck is happy. Only thing is I don't think you can do this to the front passenger seat without interfering with the airbag sensor. At least that's what I would surmise based on the fact that they didn't put the seat heater in the back of that seat for that reason. But I never ride in the passenger seat so it's not an issue for me and no one else has complained about it. Now that I've fixed this one problem I love my Civic.

How do I adjust the front headrest on my 2009 Lincoln MKS so that they do not tilt so far forward?

I turned my headrests backward. Worked great. In fact, I wonder if the engineers designed them that way but the production guys build them backward???
1) Tilt the seat way back to allow room to remove headrests, 2) Press and hold both headrest release tabs at the same time and have someone else pull out the headrest completely, 3) turn the headrests backward and insert into the two headrest guide slots (headrests fit the same either way). 4) No more pain in the neck !!!
Caution: I do not know what this does for whiplash injury protection but it seems OK for my own comfort with the solution. And it beats the pain in the neck caused by the bass-akwards design.

2012 Honda Civix EX - Big Problem w/front seat headrests

I had the same problem with mine for the first month I drove it. Already having a herniated disc in my neck didn't help. What I did was unzip the back of the seat cover and insert some foam into the back of the seat. This pushed the front of the seat out enough to keep my head from being pushed forward by the slanted headrest. The headrest is still right behind my head but it is no longer pushed forward painfully. You can't tell that I did anything to the seat from looking at it, but now it's comfortable and I love my Civic.

For a xg 350 2002 car dont start, ihave no gas coming does this car have a reset for the fuel pomp. tthe car had a small impact in the front about 30 km

this car does not have a reset switch like a ford. if you know for sure that there is no fuel pumping in the fuel line then check the fuel pump fuse and relay underhood. there shouldnt be any wire in the front of the car that causes the fuel pump to stop working if the wires in front are damaged by a collision. fuel pump is in the tank but there should be an access hole under the back seat bottom cushion. the seat cushion can be a pain to get loose.

How do you fold down rear seats in 1991 4 runner

There is a small loop about a 1/2" wide located next to the seatbelt "female end" they are a pain to find if they slide down behind the seat. pull it toward the front of the truck, you should be able to flip the bottom seat up and forward. Sometimes the seat belt will get stuck in the locking mechanism and you will have to pull hard to free it.

My seats just died on my new LR2

there are connectors on the back side of the switch panel on the bottom side of the seat, but the plastic trim panel is a pain to take off. you can check to see that all is still plugged in and nothing came unplugged accidentally. odds are that your module will need to have some updated software downloaded by the dealer. i feel your pain though, i was one of many of land rover's technician layoffs!

How do you remove the headrest on a 1996 ford crown victoria?

Head Restraints Each front seat is equipped with dual-post design front seat back head restraint (611A08). The front seat back head restraint is installed as follows:
  • It travels on dual posts which have notches to engage a spring-loaded catch in the guide.
  • The front seat back spring assembly retains the front seat head rest guide rod sleeve (610A16).
  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).
  • Pull up on the front seat back head restraint to raise it. Pushing down will return it to its normal position.

  1. Unscrew front seat head rest guide rod retainers (610A18).
  1. Pull up on front seat back head restraint (611A08). Compress foam in area of front seat head rest guide rod sleeves (610A16).
  1. Remove front seat back head restraint positioning springs. Pull front seat back head restraint up and out.
  1. Slide front seat head rest guide rod retainers onto front seat back head restraint posts.
  1. Compress foam in front seat head rest guide rod sleeve area. Install positioning springs on front seat head rest guide rod sleeves.
  1. Insert front seat back head restraint posts (notches on posts facing rearward) into front seat head rest guide rod sleeves and push down to engage positioning spring.
  1. Tighten front seat head rest guide rod retainers onto front seat head rest guide rod sleeves.
  1. NOTE: Front seat back head restraint must operate smoothly throughout its range of travel, must remain in any fixed position, and must not be freely removable from the seat back. If any of these conditions are not met, check for proper installation of positioning spring onto front seat head rest guide rod sleeve.

    Adjust front seat back head restraint by applying hand pressure, either up or down, to center area of front seat back head restraint.
