Electric motors on our 1995 Volvo 960 seats don't work anymore

The motors are bad and the seats are stuck in position, both of which are uncomfortable. Is it possible to manually adjust the seats without replacing the motors? Thanks in advance!

Wipers not working on 1995 volva 960 motor and windshield washer is working fuses are good

Ensure you check the actual wiper fuse (15A). If OK then pull plug out of wiper motor and run separate power to hot terminal, if it works then wiring to switch or switch is faulty, if it doesnt work then motor needs removal for O/H.

Power seat problem

There is not a way to manually adjust the seats, and in order to repair your stated issue, I will agree with you, it sounds like a cable issue. problem is, you have to time the cables, so that they will not continue to operate in a twisted state.

1995 volvo 960 stuck in winter mode

Where roy might have a possible source, it is most likely the park neutral switch which has started to fail. This is indicated by the shift arrow flashing on the dash. Replacement of this component is relatively difficult without a lift

How can I remove front row seat headrest?

Most volvo headrest can be removed by releasing the catches which are on the back of the headrest on some models and on the front on others I believe on 960 they are on the back. To release the seat on a 960 look where the shafts should be then follow it down on the back where the seat back top stops then goes in press around that area you should be able to find the catch there pull up on the headrest while releasing the catch you have to do this on both sides. The headrest should come off this also works on 740 and 760 series the volvo 780 is a different story the only way to get the headrest off on that is to disassemble the seat
