Try and look and inspect the under-side of that particular seat in question, what I will call it is the thru-rod from side-to-side isn't letting the seat move on the right side of that particular single seat its on, probably a cam adjust not opening to move seat fwd or aft and what has probably happened is you have dirt under there and the opposite side locking of the particular seat can't unlock to move with the side,or its out of adjustment,remove the seat and inspect mechanical moving parts there-in under if its electrically operated remove wires and do the same test

The drivers seat will not recline, the seat still moves back and forth


Someone will have to remove the seat and check the motor and linkage to see what is broken.

Seat Position Cant be moved


The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.

If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.

If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.

Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.

If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.

Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side 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.

How do I remove the third row seat. lever wont budge


I just fixed my dad's 04 suburban with the back seat's #1 lever not budging. It's a surprisingly simple fix: take a 5 inch flat head screw driver and as you look into the slot where the #1 handle goes, you will see a wheel mechanism that it is connected too. to the left of that wheel, you will see a hammer mechanism with a cord attached to it. all you have to do is carefully push the lever with the screw driver while gently lifting up on the handle.
Hope this helps!

How do i remove the back seat of a 2000 toyota corolla?


Lift up on the front edge of the seat part and slide it out. Next, remove the bolts that hold the back in place. It will pop right out.

Need to remove backseat


You can not remove the far back seat, only the middle one. But you can slide it all the way foward. I have had my van for two years and just learned how to do it today from my husband. Below the rear are two levers. A and B. Make sure the back of the seat is in the upright position and then pull on Levee A. At the same time, lift of the bottom of the seat. It will go up and fold together making a V with the back of the seat. Then pull lever B and slide seat forward.
