Ford 2008 expedition, power drivers seat won't recline, but everything else works.


Power Recliner
The driver seat has an electro-mechanical backrest adjuster. The backrest adjustment switch is located on the side of the seat cushion side shield and is part of the seat control switch. The recliner motor is mounted to the backrest frame. Power recliners and motors are only serviceable by installing a new backrest frame assembly.

How can we adjust driver's seat so it isn't reclined?


If the lever that controls reclining does not work, some previous owner probably broke the mechanism.

I have a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab, manual seats. The drivers side seat won't recline. The side of seat with the lever unlatches, but the opposite side does not. Does anyone know how to fix this?


Lubrication. You will need to remove the seat from the cab, and lubricate all pivots associated with the recliner mechanism. These mechanisms are made of very cheap metal alloys, and are subject to jamming and rust.

Power seat won't recline


Sounds like the motor and gearing has worn out, they take a lot of punishment. Replacements are available (sometimes it works out much much cheaper to buy a whole second-hand seat). But that depends how much you like the car...

The passenger front seat will not recline - how can I fix


2010 Equinox drivers side won't recline.
Found the cable popped off recline mechanism.
Pulled back the lower seat panel near the recline lever after removing one torque screw located on said panel which is on the back of seat. Works great now. By the way, Freedom Chevrolet in San Antonio, Tx, without diagnosis, wanted to charge my girl friend $860 to replace the whole assembly.

Passenger seat stuck in lying down position.


Use some penetrating lubricant on all pivot points and levers around the recline mechanism, and let the lubricant sit overnight. In the morning, try to work the recline mechanism free. (The vehicle is quite old at this point, and likely parts in the interior need lubrication. These parts should be lubricated annually.)
