This doesnt make sense mechanically unless the actual bearing is seized on the console side. the only real way to attempt fixing this is to pull the seat out and dissasemble the track and adjustments. pull it apart and make sure the motors are working right and the bearings arent seized and the tracks are clear.

The front seat is stock how can i move it forward?


You see that shiny rod running from one side to the other? That rod is attached to pins that lock into the notches on the seat tracks. When you pull the seat lever, the rod is supposed to retract the pins out of the notches on both seat runners so the seat can slide on the runners or tracks. Reach under and pull the pins out of the notches on both tracks to slide the seat forward. Those rods get stretched or loose or fall out of place. Sometimes a pair of pliers can be used to get the rod back into place and fixed, so it works off the seat lever.

Front seat will not slide forward? The seat will move up and down, tilt, and the lumbar works? Even the heated/cooling seat works? What do I need to look for and how do I fix it:?


The power seat in the truck has 3 motors, one of them is not working, the most common cause of this is the power seat switch is defective, it is often the forward and reverse seat positioning switch that fails because it is the one that is most used. If the switch checks ok then you will need to replace the the power seat track assembly, Ford does not sell any parts for the track, it is only available as one complete unit, I know this because i retired form a Ford dealer. Please rate my help for Fixya. Thanks

How to change front power seat track worm in 1993 landcruiser


Lift the front edge of the seat bottom by using the regular power seat switch. Take voltage readings of the seat slide motor.2 Verify that the voltage to the seat slide motor on the harness side between "BR" and "W/B" is 12v when the power seat's switch is pressed backwards and forwards. Jot down your radio presets and tap the seat slide motor so that the motor will work long enough to give you access to the seat mounting bolts.3 Pull the seat as forward as it will go. Take off the two M10 rear seat mounting bolts and set them aside. Push the seat as far back as it will go. Take off the two M10 front seat mounting bolts. Switch the ignition so that it marks "OFF." Unplug the negative battery cable. Stand by for 4 minutes. Raise the seat assembly to find the harness-to-seat connectors. Disconnect them.4 Take out the entire seat assembly and place it on a dry, clean, flat surface. Position it so you can access the bottom of the seat. Undo the seat bottom's carpet flap and take out the four M8 bolts. Then, take out the top screws from the right hand and left hand side finishers. Unplug the seat sub-harness connector.5 Put both the seat rails back into their rear position and take out the worm gears, motor, flexible wire and gear boxes all at the same time. Take out the flexible wire from the gear boxes using a screwdriver. Verify that the new seat track mounting tab makes contact with the rear stopper and that the threaded shaft facing up is point upwards. 6 Install six new rubber grommets. Place the new worm gears, flexible wire and gear boxes into the frame. Reposition the seat tracks over the seat track mounting tabs. Use your hand to tighten the M6 bolts securing the seat track mounting tabs. Torque the six base plate nuts securing the gear boxes to 64 to 85 inch pounds (7.17 to 9.69 Nm) and the M8 bolts on the seat's front edge to 13 to 17 foot pounds (17.5 to 23.7 Nm).7 Plug the slide motor connector back in and hook the carpet flap's strap. Reinstall the seat assembly and reconnect the electrical connectors and negative battery cable. Torque the mounting bolts to 27 to 36 foot pounds (37 to 49 Nm). Operate the seat to make sure that the problem has been resolved

Can remove the front passenger seat of a 2003 Honda Odyssey? How?


Your seat is bolted down. slide the seat all the way back as far as it will go, and look at the slide rails( tracks that the seat travels on), you will see 2 bolts. going into the floor on the rails. just undo the 2 bolts, and then slide the seat forward(slowly, the front has no bolts holding it), on the back side of the rails, are 2 more bolts. Remove thise bolts, and you should be able to remove the seat. (This is a manual seat, not a power seat) hope this helps, please rate helpful or not

1996 Honda Accord driver's side power seat. Seat will tilt forward and back but will not slide front and back horizontally -- do I really have to buy a whole seat assembly or can I get just a motor? Or...


each function has its own electric motor, the most common cause of this is the control switch, the next problem would be the motor, if it is a motor try and find a used one, Honda wants about $2000.00 for a new seat track assembly.

94 silverado driver seat stuck


Go under the seat and check both slide tracks for anything jamming it up...I've removed gloves, socks, candy boxes etc from tracks. Also if its not a power seat, check that when you move the release lever it is connected by a stiff wire to the opposite side. That wire releases the right side track. If broken or stretched, it wont.
