SOURCE: 2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster

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.

How do i adjust the paasenger seat in my 1999 VW beetle?


There is a D shaped handle on the side of the seat nearest the door. Lift up on it and the seat back will fold forward, and the entire seat mechanism will lift up and to the front, giving your passengers room to get into the back seat. Simply push the seat back toward the rear of the car to set it back in place; it will lock itself down once it's back in its original position.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you manually put back the lever while you put the seat on the desired position. Sometimes the adjustment lever fails to go back so you will have to do it manually.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My wife removed the rdiver side rear seat from a


This happened to me the other day! My husband took into Kia dealership only to be told they'd need it for a few hours, might have to take the whole seat apart, then resulting in labor charges!
This morning my dad came over with solutions he'd found online involving the use of a broomstick or rake. That didn't work. You first have to slide the whole seat in the forward position, so the metal tracking behind the seat is exposed. Next locate the cable cord on the inside of this track. My dad then took a long, flat head screwdriver, placed it under then cable and pushed it upwards/forwards-which released the rear latches and then I pulled the lever and we pushed the seat out!! Hope this helps!


Slide seat forward so the rear track

The seat back is stuck and will ot adjust


The seat's adjustible slides lock in with retainer clips that attach to the adjuster handle. If a wire came unhooked (or both) the seat will act as if it is stuck in one position. Take a look under the seat and check it out. Its a simple fix for even the most non skilled mechanic
