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.

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.

normally the seat tracks are bolted to the floor or riser. It is possible that when the seat was moved forward the track moved over the head of a mounting bolt and will not return. check for interference between track and rail while trying to return seat.

How do i remove the drivers seat in my 99 chevy silverado? I need to figure out why my seat will not slide back and forth when I pull on the seat adjust lever.


Probablyt because the little wire cable that activates the release mechanisms on both sliders is broken, and therefor only allowing only one slider to release when you activate the seat adjusting lever, and leaving the other one engaged, preventing you from moving your seat. This is relatively easy to diagnose, if you know what to look for... Just try to see what all moves when you press your lever. See if there is a wire cable that is activated anywhere under your seat it should be relativley close to your lever and run across the open space to the opposite slider.

The passenger side headlight on 20001 vw beetle


You may have corrosion from winter weather. Bulb socket would be 1st place to check.
  • Locate the headlight housing on the right
  • A gray or black plastic handle which looks like a pull handle.
  • Beside the pull handle there will be a knurled pad which needs to be depressed before you pull the release
  • Press it and same time pull the release the opposite direction, this will unlock the handle
  • While pulling further you'll notice the housing will slide out of the car
  • Remove connector before fully removing the housing out
  • Open back side of case
  • Bulb will have a wire lock on the socket
  • Any contact with bulb glass will leave some form of residue, oil, debris and other contaminants on the glass and cause it to fail 100% of the time
  • Always dip the bulb in alcohol solution (de-natured) to remove all contaminants
  • Reverse procedure to put it back
