Mitsubishi Outlander 2010 driver seat stuck, the seat wont recline backward? How do I go about solving this frustrating issue?

May require removal of seat upholstery to gain access to linkage. Might be best to check with an upholstery shop as they probably know all about this.

How do i repair seats upholstery in 2008 Chrysler convertible

once leather has cracked there really is no fix other than replacement. You can soften the leather back up by rubbing a nurishing leather conditioner into the seats. But if you are picky about how it looks it will need a trip to the upholsterer.

Broken or loose front seat

Hello Jerry, There are several ways for your seat to mess up. What you may find is the frame of the seat is splitting due to metal fatique.

The metal frame is a welded part with a sheetmetal base. Over time this base can develop cracks which spread as the metal strains to hold together. This is a more difficult repair to make, sometimes it is more trouble to fix than getting another seat from a Salvage yard. In either case, the seat will be easier to work on if it is removed from the car.

An automotive upholstery shop is the type of repair shop which can do the repair. The big problem is having an air rachet small enough to unbolt the seat mounts through the floor. There will be rust, but most penetrating oils smell and will ruin the inside of your car if used.

You can find a replacement seat in Salvage yards by going to which will put a Nationwide search for your seat to match the color. Or you can use an Upholstery shop and have them strip the upholstery and switch the frame.

There may be a chance of getting a new seat frame, but it will be expensive.

Now you may have another problem which would be in the gear and motor for an electric seat track. The gears can wear out and then the seat will not be steady in its track. I would bet that if you look under the seat and pull up on a front corner, that the seat will rock from a fractured seat plate under the upholstery.

I once fixed my Drivers seat with a longer bolt and a short piece of tailpipe. I drilled a bolt hole into the pipe and secured the pipe against the frame with the bolt. I did not have to remove the seat to do this. But if the seat were taken off, someone could probably weld a heavy piece of metal on the weak side. My electric seat worked fine with the added metal in place. Again, you may get into something being more trouble than it was worth.

I hope my solution was helpful.

Power lumbar not working in buick rainier

The drive nut may have broken loose or just broke. Short of opening the seat upholstery there is not much that can be done. At least since you are hearing the motor, the wiring should fine. It uses the same fundamentals as the seat positioning mechanism uses.

An upholstery shop might be your best bet to get the upholstery covering off intact with minimal damage so the mechanism itself can be reworked/repaired and seat frame repaired as needed.

The problem with cleaning solvents or spray lubricants is the potential for the foam seat form to get damaged- or worse- permanent smell.

Car kits? Repair burn on front leather seat.

That is pretty much a waste of time
If the seat gets really bad,have an auto upholstery shop recover it.

Seat will not return to upright position

It sounds like it broke the drive cable then.
You can either take it apart (take the seat out, take off the upholstery around the hinge areas) or take it to the dealer (expensive) or to an automotive upholstery shop.
I used to work in a trim shop, and we did repairs like that all the time.
Most of them would come from dealers. Client would drop car off at dealer, dealer would run it over to us, we fix it, run it back, dealer charged our bill plus a markup.
