If you can hear the seat motor working, and the seat will not move back and is only affecting one side, there is a very good
chance that an object is resting in or on the seat rail, and is preventing the seat to move. You may have a coin stuck in the track, or possibly another small object. It may be difficult to see. I have seen this problem many times, and each time, there was always something blocking the seat movement....coins were number one.

YOU HAVE A SWITCH OR A TILT ACTUATOR MOTOR PROBLEM. LINCOLNS HAVE 5 OR 6 ELECTRIC MOTORS MOUNTED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF EACH FRONT SEAT WHICH REQUIRES REMOVING THE SEAT TO INSPECT .THEIR ARE ALSO CABLES ATTATCHED TO THESE MOTORS SO LISTEN WHEN YOU HIT THE TILT SWITCH DO YOU HEAR A MOTOR NOISE?

SOURCE: Passenger seat won't lock in place

The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.

Passenger seat will not slide forward


there will be bars underneath the seat that are supposed to go across to unlock both sides so that the seat can move forward and back, try having someone pull the lever and see if you can see from behind the bar that moves and figure out what it corresponds to on the opposite side. you should be able to move it by hand, release the lock and set the seat where you want it, as for a permanent fix, most seats are not difficult to remove, typically four bolts, although some take specialty tools like large torx bits, and i would imagine the bar is replaceable

Drivers seat is stuck in farthest back position and will not slide forward.


Check under the seat where the guide rails are and look tovsee if the wire underneath is pulling to release both sides of the seat on the rails or one side. If it's not releasing both sides you have to check to make sure there is nothing stuck in the guide rails (coins perhaps). If all is clear you'll have to adjust the rod or cable that attaches to the lever of the seat to make it release both sides so the seat unlocks and moves easily.

DRiver's seat won't slide forward nor to the rear


on the 99 the front seats are identical. assuming there was little change in 2000 you unbolt both seats and move the passenger seat over to the driver side. while it is out, you set the sliders manually to be in the middle position and the passenger seat will be stuck there. If you can get light up inside there you will see a cable connector has released at one end meaning it will not release the dog to permit sliding so you may have to pull it manually with a vise grip in order to move the seat forward on the sliders to get at the bolt heads in the rear. unplug the battery before you unplug the seats.

Ait bag warning light on, plus passenger seat doesnt fold forward correctly and difficult to get back in the correct position after letting passengers into the rear. 2002 cooper. thanks


Regarding the passenger seat, to allow someone into the back seat, push the seat back lever DOWN. This will flip the back of the seat forward and allow the seat to slide forward. Simply push firmly on the seat back (no need to touch the lever) and it will return to its original position.

If you pull the seat back lever UP, you can adjust the recline angle of the seat back. Pulling the lever UP will also let you fold the seat and slide it forward, however, it will not return to its original position.

Sorry, cannot solve your airbag question.

Remove seat from second row in Honda Mini Van 2007


on the passenger side feel under the seat and there is a lever that pulls toward you as you stand at the sliding door.

First, raise the armrest, then lower the back all the way forward. Then remove the headrest sit it out of the way and while pulling the lever under the seat towards you, lift up the seat from the back so it tilts forward. When it is standing on its "nose" lift first one side shifting it either forward or backwards to clear the rod on which it is hooked. Do the same with the other side of the seat and then lift it out. Installation is the reverse of removal.

The other seat is much the same, though sometimes the lever is a little different but in the same place.

Good luck,
bob

Drivers side seat will not go up or down as designed.


You could remove the seat and check to see if there is anything jammed in the seat rails causing the seat not to adjust up or down. Remove the 4 Torx-40 bolts from the rails tilt the seat back and disconnect the connectors that are lined up under the bottom of the seat. MAKE SURE THE KEY IS OFF AND STAYS OFF. Check the rails, check the operation of the height adjust. If it still does not work then it most likely needs seat rails.
