Ford 2008 expedition, power drivers seat won't recline, but everything else works.


Power Recliner
The driver seat has an electro-mechanical backrest adjuster. The backrest adjustment switch is located on the side of the seat cushion side shield and is part of the seat control switch. The recliner motor is mounted to the backrest frame. Power recliners and motors are only serviceable by installing a new backrest frame assembly.

Back tilt is a manual round knob on drivers seat it just turns


It sounds like the inside of the recliner knob is stripped out. If you go to your local GM dealership and give them your VIN number they can order you a new one. Here is the removal and installation directions.
Driver or Passenger Seat Recliner Handle Replacement Removal Procedure
  1. Use a flat-bladed tool to remove the plastic center cap from the center of the recliner handle.

  2. Pull the recliner handle off the shaft.
Installation Procedure
  1. Install the recliner handle on the recliner shaft.

  2. Push the recliner handle firmly onto the recliner shaft until fully seated.
  3. Install the plastic center cap into the center of the recliner handle.

1999 Ford Explorer Sport. Cracked Lower Seat Frame front of left side hinge attatchment/recliner handle. Lower seat frame needs to be replaced or welded. I am working out of town and can't get to a shop...


I have seen both wood and bricks used to put under a seat frame. Some of the seat mounts do not give you much room for using a wrench. They give you room for a 3/8th air rachet and socket. Especially if you are a little shorter you can elevate the frame and then put wood in the cavity and then lower the seat for a temporary fix.

There are some operating parts I have no name for, but they connect the gears on each side of the seat track. So the wood blocks have to fit between these parts. I can recommend a Salvage yard called "Parts Galore" which is expanding Nationwide. Again wrenching on this stuff is hard without power tools.

Can't address swapping passenger and driver tracks. Check out small "C" clamps or conduit clamp.

Replace lever mechnism to recline seat


O'reily stocks a new handle that is especially made to replace the handle that broke. It attaches to the broken shaft you have sticking out of your seat. This is a common problem.

Explorer seat


You need a new or used passenger seat tilt lever. Mine broke also. There are a couple on sale on EBay for $30.00. See link, otherwise you can buy new from Ford for about $75.00.
