2002 Chevy malibu drivers seat will not slide nothing in track and has no motor


Lift the bar located under the front seat to unlock it. Slide the seat to where you want it and release the bar. Then try to move the seat with your body to make sure the seat is locked into place.

Passenger seat will not slide forward


there will be bars underneath the seat that are supposed to go across to unlock both sides so that the seat can move forward and back, try having someone pull the lever and see if you can see from behind the bar that moves and figure out what it corresponds to on the opposite side. you should be able to move it by hand, release the lock and set the seat where you want it, as for a permanent fix, most seats are not difficult to remove, typically four bolts, although some take specialty tools like large torx bits, and i would imagine the bar is replaceable

Passenger seat won't lock in place


The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.

Have a 1999 Chevy 1500 extended cab. Driver seat is not powered. Won't lock into place, keeps sliding back and forth. Was told I have to replace the whole seat and sliding track by Chevy Dealership. Anyone...


Remove the seat assembly turn it upside down cables come off the handle you pull on to slide seat, Follow these cables to 2 pawls that pivot on tracks and see if they are broken,bent,or just stuck and need cleaned and lubed.If you need new track slider assembly I use to be able to get them all the time from GM parts department and just replace tracks themselves.

Lincoln mark viii seat lock


on the bottom side of the seat back is a seam it is held together by locking plastic strips that you can pry apart with a screw driver or trim tool. from there you can roll up seat cover. velcro strip hold parts of it to the foam. the seat bottom has plastic strips that snap to the underside of the seat frame. you can remove them the same way. as for the recliner issue you wont knnow till you get in there. Im not sure about the spring but something could have fallen in there preventing it from locking into place
