Question about 1994 Volvo 850
Car power seat does not retain adjustment
This is always a fun thing to fix. I have fixed a many of them, nothing like sitting in seat and over a couple days the next thing you know the seat is laying on the back seat. ok the fix is to get another one.......Not really, but if you have no patience and no tools then you will need to buy another one from a junk yard or a recycler as they like to be called. Anyways unplug seat from all connections and take seat out of car. use plyers and pull out the hog staples out of the leather in the crack of the eat and pull the seat leather cover back. you will find a worm gear that when controls are pressed it turns and pulls the back of the seat up and lays it down. well the cable is stretched. SO you will need to take the end off and take a small cut off tool and take a 1/4 inch off it and reatach the cable back and make sure it holds it tight and then it will work. always try seat by plugging it all back up before reataching seat back into car. if works and u have it ajusted then u need to taek hog staples and reatach the leather back the way it was, Might have to go buy the special tool and smae new hog clips from a shop that does cloth or leather. tool is like $ 20.00 and new clips are like $8.00 a box. Good luck. It does save $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
