Question about Cars & Trucks
I slide the axle ends into the grooves, push forward, but it binds and won't seat into the height adjuster. I just can't figure out what it's binding on. The height adjuster seems to be seated properly. I'm like stuck more than a half inch sway from the top of the adjuster.
No idea without the thing in front of me ,i know iam motor mechanic and not vac man but its mechanical and my big hammer will cure a lot of things

Testimonial: "Well, the hammer trick did work- sort of. It knocked some sense into me. Turns out the wheel assy doesn't seat to the housing, the housing seats up to the assy when you step on the pedal to unlock the upright postamagig. So I never had a problem in the first place. But there's one consolation that came out of all this- I discovered this wonderful website (that is if you automatically unsubscribe mechanical dummies like me). Hopefully I can contribute too. Been a computer programmer/analyst for over 50 years- fixed a lot of bugs in my programs over the years, but obviously not too many vacs. Thanks for your response, Colin,"

well i had the same problem everyone told me the clutches in the rearend were sticking making it stick in positive traction (only your passanger side rear wheel pulls unless you start spinning then a type of clutch engages the other side so you have traction then when you stop spinning it disengages it should never be engaged if your on pavment) now you can do what i did listen to everyone when they tell you its normal or you can take it to someone with experience now and save yourself some money cause it will start popping then it will get some viberation then next it will break the clutches and when that happens you will have to replace the pinion,ring,and the spider gears as well as the clutches.make sure you have pleanty oil in rearend if you dont add the limited slip conditioner it might free clutches up but if i had it to do over id put it in the shop or stop driving it before i broke something hope this helped

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.
