SOURCE: front seat stays in the reclined postion..

The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.

Back of front seat will not go upright ,on my 2005 ford freestyle

If the latch is working and the seat will not sit straight up and down the seat frame is likely "bent" (common problem on Ford SUVs) and cannot be fixed with normal tools. You can attempt to bend it back by pushing from the back seat, but the metal may be weak enough it may work it's way back to a reclining position. I have removed the seat cover taken seat out, bent the metal back and placed the seat back in only to have the same problem crop up. I would recommend trying to secure a used seat of the same color from an auto recycling place like Pick n Pull or if you are willing to pay more and have less hassle you can get one from a regular Auto Salvage yard.

The passenger front seat will not recline - how can I fix

2010 Equinox drivers side won't recline.
Found the cable popped off recline mechanism.
Pulled back the lower seat panel near the recline lever after removing one torque screw located on said panel which is on the back of seat. Works great now. By the way, Freedom Chevrolet in San Antonio, Tx, without diagnosis, wanted to charge my girl friend $860 to replace the whole assembly.

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.
