Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The seat works fine but it slides forward about 1/2 inch when stopping and then back when taking-off. The seat mounting bolts are tight, so what could be the problem? I'm guessing there are some bushing that need to be replaced?
The problem is probably due to some shims in the seat rails that have "dissolved". I have posted a video on YouTube that shows what I needed to do to repair my seat. http://youtu.be/sOjivYnXMAQ

There is a ratchet system on the slide rail below the seat, sometimes the teeth on the ratchet wear out, especially when adjusted often. The hook holder that actually clamps onto those teeth, may be broken off or worn out aswell, and either of these will need replacement. Some models also come with air-suspension and a locking device, the spring on this device may be missing or worn, this will also mean a new one is neccesary for repair.
BUT... If you don't want to fork out, and are going to leave the seat in one position for a long time, may I suggest simply welding the rail to the seat, this is a permanent thing and would require you to throw away the entire sliding system, if you ever need to adjust the seat. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Ck for debri or other objwcts in way of tracks Does it try to move? If so, there is an obstruction, If not trying or no sound when switch is moved, could very well be a fuse or the forward limit switch is being affected by excess forward travel. Move the switch yo back and without kinda help it. if it's trying.

Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

Most common problem is corrosion inside electrical connector to the motor. Either replace or clean out connector. Disconnect battery before doing any cleaning of connrctors. If connectors are a-ok then use voltmeter and see if B+ is making it to seat motor.
If it is then motor is defective . if its not then remove position switch from connectors , use a jumper wire
and jump connectors and see if switch operates motor. If it operates motor then the switch is defective
