Question about 1990 Chrysler LeBaron

1 Answer

Seabring convertable When I move the driver seat back forward using the handle on the side to access the back. The when moving it back to a seating position you can hear the ratchet clicking along but it will not catch. The only way to return it and get it to catch is to slam it hard all the way back. The seat is a power seat. I don't see any recalls on this but I think it could be a safety hazard in a crash. Any suggestions

It sounds like the regulator gears are stripped. You'll have to actually remove plastic covers on the hinge point and on the side of the seat and you should be able to see the teeth. You may need to replace it, which will be tricky as you need to remove a lot of the cushions as well... I don't believe it'll be a recall as it sounds like wear and tear and abuse (you having slammed it hard to get it to lock)

Why doesn't driver's power seat move forward or back?


All those seat motors are under the seat. The forward and back motor has cables that are used to move the seat. If a plug are cable came loose, easy to find. Can be a pain to fix. Not much room to work. Some times the seat has to come out. I think I would be more worried to what damage is on the bottom of the car first. Just saying.

How do i adjust the paasenger seat in my 1999 VW beetle?


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 pulled the seat all the way forward on my 1990 Mercedes 420 see and it will not go back. When I push the seat back button I hear a faint click but no movement. My passenger seat doesn't make a noise...


use the buttons to move it back but shake the seat side to side. sounds like your track on the seat has gotten in a bind with the one on the floor. just wiggle and jiggle till it starts to move and dont go all the way forward in the future

The electric front seats both stopped moving


Check the fuse box for a blown fuse, both seats may operate on one fuse depending on the model of vehicle and the fuse may be located either under the dash on the drivers side or in the engine compartment on the drivers side.
