1994 Cadillac Deville front seat recliner broken

The front seat on a 1994 Deville I am thinking of buying has a broken reclining mechanism. The seat will lay all the way back on the back seat. This is the drivers seat. How can i fix this if I buy the car? Is this a common problem?

Thanks, Mike

Not a very common problem. You can get either the part from the dealer, or the seat from the junk yard. It will have the piece you need to correct the issue.

The passenger front seat will not recline - how can I fix

2010 Equinox drivers side won't recline.
Found the cable popped off recline mechanism.
Pulled back the lower seat panel near the recline lever after removing one torque screw located on said panel which is on the back of seat. Works great now. By the way, Freedom Chevrolet in San Antonio, Tx, without diagnosis, wanted to charge my girl friend $860 to replace the whole assembly.

1992 Caddillac Seville front seat recliner piston

Let me tell you, I rather replace a head gasket on that car compair to working on those seat, it more head ache to work on. Its not worth trying to repair and fix the unit itself, I don't recall they even still make repair parts for them, once the unit goes bad you have to replace them, the rubber seal in the piston tend to wear out and leak through; I will wish you luck if you can find rebuilt parts for the piston. At the same time you need to check seat motor making sure they in strong running condition. I would locate one from a junkyard, new will be expensive being Cadillac, at the junk yard will hardly cost you nothing if you able to take the seat apart.

Drivers seat in full recline position and will not

I would first check the fuse panel & see if fuse is burned out. The next thing I would check is the switch, wiggle it sideways, etc to see if the contacts are dirty. Last, these motors sometimes go bad, as mine did, so I got another seat for $50 at the wrecking yard & just exchanged it. There is also a slight possibility that the wire harness came unplugged under the seat or at the switch, but that is pretty remote. Rick
