You could remove the seat and check to see if there is anything jammed in the seat rails causing the seat not to adjust up or down. Remove the 4 Torx-40 bolts from the rails tilt the seat back and disconnect the connectors that are lined up under the bottom of the seat. MAKE SURE THE KEY IS OFF AND STAYS OFF. Check the rails, check the operation of the height adjust. If it still does not work then it most likely needs seat rails.

I need to raise the drivers power seat on my 2016 new Volvo V90 1" above the current maximum height due to my short height. So far little help from Volvo.


It would not be an easy task as Volvo builds their seat base to lock in to the floor structure of the car, but if you could find a competent machine shop to manufacture 1" spacer plates to mount between the seat base and the floor of the car.

I have 2 bucket seats in the middle of my 2007 montana. can i take one out?


Yes of course you can remove the seat. There is a pull at the rear of the seat in the middle (down on the frame) The pull is a loop of material. You need to pull that up with solid force, this will release the lock so you can tilt your seat forwards. Once the seat is rotated forward enough, you will be able to lift the seat out.
I leave my seat out behind the drivers seat most of the time for easy access into the back and just putting stuff in the car. Also, the side clearance height is higher than the rear hatch height.

1995 BMW 525i seat height motor works on one side of seat only


there are 2 cables that come out of the motor that operates that feture. Over time the outsdie tube of the cable streaches, causing the cable that turns inside, to come out of the transmission is drives. One way to fix this is to remove this cable and shoren the outside tube by cutting it, and then re-insall back into the transmission. This is a 50/50 chance repair. The correct way to cure this issue is to replace the lower seat frame. $$$

1997 Dodge Ram Console


Thats a whole different ballpark. The center seat consoles do not lock upright at all there is no locking device, you just lift it up and it has a small bump that the lever hops over and this keeps it from falling back down. The only thing I can think of is something could be wedged in the lever or the rotating level itself is broken and holding the seat up. You may be able to see what is holding it if you move the drivers seat as far forward as possible and watch carefully on one side while wiggling the console back and forth and then do the same on the other side. If could be the lever bent and you may be able to bent it back into plce where it should be.

Let me know what you find, in the mean time I will check the Chrysler Star Hotline to see if there was a simular problem.
