Question about Cars & Trucks
You see that shiny rod running from one side to the other? That rod is attached to pins that lock into the notches on the seat tracks. When you pull the seat lever, the rod is supposed to retract the pins out of the notches on both seat runners so the seat can slide on the runners or tracks. Reach under and pull the pins out of the notches on both tracks to slide the seat forward. Those rods get stretched or loose or fall out of place. Sometimes a pair of pliers can be used to get the rod back into place and fixed, so it works off the seat lever.

Well what I saw when I pulled my seats out of my 97 LC was that the worm gear on the bottom of the track had lost some tread. (its plastic) also, there is a cap that screws in to the end of that gear to hold it in place, so when you reverse the seat, the gear moves if that cap falls out of place ----small plastic cap fell out in mine. The whole rail system is like $300 at Toyota but i found a website that sells the cap and the gears for $20. I will try to post it tomorrow-for the time being, you can take the seat out -be sure to unplug the electronics, and use a wrench to manually move the seat back and then put it back into place
