Question about 2000 Renault Sportwagon
The front passenger seat can not change position it just slides forward or back on the rail and will only lock in when the seat is touching the seats in the back of the car, which means that I cant have any passengers travelling in the back of the car as there is no leg room.. I would really appreciate some advice, many thanks.
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.
