SOURCE: Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.

My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

SOURCE: can i switch of the passenger airbag in my 2003 ford focus?

The passenger airbag is what is called a smart generation airbag, there is a sensor in the passenger seat that tells the airbag control module to turn off the bag if the weight is less than 50 pounds in the paswsenger seat, i.e. a child, I work for Ford and we will not turn off or tamper with or disconnect the airbag, why? if you get in a wreck and are hurt because we disconnected or otherwise defeated the airbag we would be liable for damages and a lawsuit.

SOURCE: rear humming noise on my ford focus suspect rear wheel bearings

If the humming is more pronounced when you turn corners it is one of the wheel bearings.Listen to determine which side. They can be done easily DIY but only with some mechanical knowledge.The old bearing casings need to be removed from the hub using a small chisel or drift. The new ones need to be pressed back into the hub ideally but can be done using a hammer and a suitale sized socket.

the seat adjuster assembly is bad. i was a chrysler tech for 15 years. the motor that runs the forward and back is either bad or the tracks are bad and it is binding. you can not get parts for it. you will have to buy a new complete adjuster or see if a boneyard may have a good used aseembly. Don

Driver seat bar for the seat adjustment forwards and back came off. How to fix it


just fixed mine - passenger side. I had to take the seat out, only (2) bolts in the back and (1) wiring connection. the handle has a hole that fits on a pin then connects to the plastic clip. very simple, I would bet nothing is broken just I could not do it with the seat in the car. once the seat was out about 30 seconds it was back on.
hope this helps

I own a 1996 328i BMW, and the drivers automatic seat adjustment Tilt only goes back and will not come forward. Is this a simple fix or do I neede to replace the seat? I know if I go back any further with...


Very common problem. The white plastic gear in the tilt mechanism gets old and brittle and breaks.
BMW will want to sell you a whole gear box with motor. Aside from the outrageous cost, removing that gearbox is a pain.
Odometergears.com will sell you just the plastic gear for $40, and their website has wonderful instructions that show you how to replace it quickly and easily.
You will have to remove the seat from the car. Put some old socks over the tips of the seat rails that unbolt from the floor because the seat is rather heavy and awkward to handle, and the tips of those seat rails are very sharp and will cut up the interior and exterior of your car if they touch anything as you wrestle with the seat DAMHIK.
The other tip is to be careful not to over-tighten the screws that hold the cover on the gear box, They are not very strong and will twist in two easily. Again.. Don't ask...
Unrelated, but if the leather on your driver seat is shot, you can use the leather from a junk yard passenger seat to freshen up your driver seat. The seat bottom is replaced foam and all. Don't bother trying to save the plastic snaps, just pry the seat bottom up and put in new snaps. The leather on the seat back has to be removed from the seat and transferred, but it is not difficult.

Remove the seat by unscrewing the bolts which hold it to the floor of the car. Assuming it is not power you will see a cable operated by the handle you lift in order to intentionally move the seat. It has come loose on the end which pulls a dog out of the adjustment notches on the rail. You will need to fix it. If it is power seat then you are going to need another seat acquired in a junkyard or on craigslist. get this locally as the shipping will be ridiculous. many junkyards are now on line and you can search their inventory and see what other models and years have compatible seats with your vehicle.

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.

My transmission will not go into park. how do i fix that


  1. Install the shift cable end of the shift cable to the transmission shift lever stud ball.
  2. Install the retainer to the shift cable and transmission bracket.
  3. Feed the shift cable through the floor panel.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Adjustment Procedure
    1. Ensure that the shift cable is not restricted.
    2. Place the shift lever into the NEUTRAL position.
    3. Position the shift cable to assume a natural routing. The shift cable must be free to move 20.0 mm (0.80 inch) axially during the adjustment under adjustment spring loads.
    4. Pull the cable end completely forward and release it. (When the cable is pulled completely forward and released, the adjustment spring will position the cable to its most rearward position.) Notice: Do not pull the shift lever ball stud forward of the transmission shift lever ball stud during installation. Pulling the shift cable end forward of the transmission shift lever ball stud before installing the shift cable end to the transmission shift lever ball stud will result in a poor adjustment.
    5. Connect the end of the shift cable to the transmission shift lever stud ball.
    6. Press the locking tab IN in order to secure the shift cable to the transmission bracket.

Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward


There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.
