SOURCE: front seat springs

the spring is for height adjustment. all other functions will still work. the only fix is to replace the seat frame which is very expensive. you can actually still adjust the height but not while you are in the seat your weight will keep it from raising. Just remove the spring so it doesnt jam under the seat and everything else will continue working fine.

SOURCE: stuck seat belt

In regards to the previous solution you can't gentle feed it back because its stuck and there is no slack, it won't release at all.

For the seat bottom, you just need to pull it up. The seat backs would have to be unbolted.

SOURCE: 2000 Park ave - power seat problem

The electric adjustment motor has a drive-gear that engages a gear on the shaft of the adjustment screw (90 degree engagement). The gear on the adjustment shaft looses a tooth. Adjustment motor whines, drive gear on adjustment motor spins, no action though because of missing tooth. A 12mm 1/4" drive socket on a wiggler (universal) on the end of a 6" extension can engage the not on the end of the exposed large adjustment shaft and, as the shaft is lightly loaded and the electrical switch engaged, one can get the shaft to spin almost one revolution at a time until the seat is high enough. It is hard to reach the nut necessary (inside the dull-grey clevis that the shaft threads into) and I had to take off the seat pad by removing the 4@ 13mm nuts (and 3 @10mm nuts holding the center section with the driver's cushion) to more-or-less easily access the situation. Dealership wanted well over $1000. to fix it. Three out of my 4 up and down adjustment motors are running, but don't adjust. PS, on my 2001 Park Avenue on each seat there is one adjustment motor for the front edge up and down, one adjustment motor for the rear edge up and down, one adjustment motor for the seat fore and aft, and one adjustment motor for the sear back tilt. Lots of complication, not so much on durability. We do not swap out drivers and adjust the seats excessively. Weak design on the one internal gear. Manually adjust it, unplug the electric to the motor, Drive happy again.

Where are the fuses located for the air conditioner in a 2001 pontiac bonneville


The interior fuse box in a Pontiac Bonneville is underneath the backseat on the driver's side.

To remove the rear seat cushion:
1. Pull up on the front of the cushion to release the
front hooks.
2. Pull the cushion up and out toward the front of
the vehicle.

To reinstall the rear seat cushion:

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear - locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly
routed and that no portion of any safety belt is
trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat
cushion is secured.

Notice:
The battery and main fuse blocks are located
under the rear seat cushion. The battery's ground
terminal and some relay wires are exposed.
To help avoid damage to the battery and wires,
be careful when removing or reinstalling the seat
cushion. Do not remove covers from covered
parts. Do not store anything under the seat, as
objects could touch exposed wires and cause
a short.

How do you get to the battery on 2000 LeSabre Buick?


Reach down in the bite-line (where the seat cushion and the seat back meet). Pull up on the seat cushion until the cushion raises above the bottom of the seat back. Pull the seat cushion towards the front. There are two metal tabs that are hooked into the front of the seat cushion that holds it in place; unhook these by moving the cushion forward. To replace, reverse the procedure, but make sure the seatbelt recepticles are exposed before pushing the seat cushion down into the bite-line.

How do I fix the drivers side front seat heater on a 2000 Buick Lesabre LTD? It appears to be the heating unit and not the switch.


Hello: It would be best to replace it, We fixed (per GM Instructions) but they didn't stay fixed so that's why I recommend replacing it. To replace it you have to remove the outer cover on the seat cushion. Bottom.

I searched the owner's manual and there was no mention of folding the rear seats down. If you don't have a manual, you can get one here: http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/buick/1999-Buick-Century.pdf

You can remove the seats following the instructions below from autozone.com.

Is it easy to replace the driver seat in a 1996 buick century?


It should have bolts holding down the back of the seat. If you can get to these, remove them. Most CAR seats do not have bolts in the front - only tabs that slide into slots in the floorboard. Once the rear bolts are out, you should be able to slide the seat loose and remove it. There will be a wire plugged in underneath or on the seat belt assembly that you will have to unplug before removing the seat.
