You can do at least two things: one - get another one from a wreck in a junkyard, making sure the seats were not involved directly or indirectly in the accident ( worn vehicle, fender bender, etc.). Two - take the piece to a welder and have the crack welded.

1999 Ford Explorer Sport. Cracked Lower Seat Frame front of left side hinge attatchment/recliner handle. Lower seat frame needs to be replaced or welded. I am working out of town and can't get to a shop...


I have seen both wood and bricks used to put under a seat frame. Some of the seat mounts do not give you much room for using a wrench. They give you room for a 3/8th air rachet and socket. Especially if you are a little shorter you can elevate the frame and then put wood in the cavity and then lower the seat for a temporary fix.

There are some operating parts I have no name for, but they connect the gears on each side of the seat track. So the wood blocks have to fit between these parts. I can recommend a Salvage yard called "Parts Galore" which is expanding Nationwide. Again wrenching on this stuff is hard without power tools.

Can't address swapping passenger and driver tracks. Check out small "C" clamps or conduit clamp.

I need to replace the front driver side seat in my 1990 240 dl. Will any model year fit or do I need a seat from a 1990 240 dl?


I believe that any 240 seat will fit. You actually want an older one. I think '89 or '90 was the year when they switched to lighter tubing. The '90 through '92 seat frames are nearly all tweaked, and sometimes crack.
If you don't buy new foam, try covering the foam with denim from old blue jeans, fastened on with spray on adhesive. That will keep it from crumbling on the seat springs.

Drivers seat drop all the way back out of nowhere i wasnt even in the car. When i tried to reposition it back forward it looks like the left side would go up the the right side to be stuck. Please advise


pull the seat out of the car by unscrewing the bolts which hold it down. unplug the wiring first.
when you have the seat out and upside down you will see what is broken and you can fix it or buy a replacement seat at a junkyard.

A support under the driver's seat in my 2004 Jeep Cherokee Laredo is broken, causing the seat to rock diagonally. It is broken in on the left front side. It looks like a bolt is broken or something is...


Since you are unsure what is broken I can't tell you how to fix it. BUT, You can go to just about any scrapyard and look at the seats they have, first to see what yours used to look like before it broke and then, if it is anything that will need welding etc, possibly to buy the seat you looked at (not terribly expensive compared to some repairs)

1994 Cadillac Deville front seat recliner broken


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.

Driver seat


If it's manual, it is all mechanical. I had the same problem a couple of years ago on my 1997. I ended up taking apart quite a bit of the seat and found a part deep inside that was broken. I don't remember the exact details, but I remember that if the part had failed completely the seat back would have suddenly dropped backward to a fully reclined position; could be extremely dangerous if it were to happen while you're driving it, so you need to get it taken care of ASAP. The broken part wasn't available from the dealer; they'd only sell it as a larger assembly, which was very expensive. It would have been cheaper to buy a complete new aftermarket seat, so I got a replacement part from a junk yard.
