Take the seat out and replace it with a better one which you got from a junkyard. or look on craiglist auto parts for someone who is selling their old saturn one part at a time. a part acquired that way has not been sitting out in the weather for years as in a junkyard. this is too big of an item to ship so stay away from ebay.

1995 jeep drivers electric seat adjustment is not working. How can I adjust it manually?

you cant, its broken, why not fix it?
not easy,,,, its a complex electro mechanical system.
that only works from motors.
if you had taken it apart and looked first.
you'd have seen all this. omg, its a motor drive.

i hate it, , its slow, and wife has short legs.
takes 20second for my wk to adjust.... silly to a fault.
the full blown new jeep has memory on the seat(more silly)
you push person 1 button and it goes to your location.
slow, and silly every inch of the way.... it's a new world. (lazy)

2003 Buick Century fix drivers seat

IF you have a manually adjusted seat then check that the wires/cables from the lever to the tracks are still attached . If you have electric adjusted check for power to the motor.

Ford fiesta 2010 model, drivers seat is stuck near enough fully forward. I am unable to retract the seat back.

Normally there is a wire connections to the seat track locks and if one is broken or un hooked you will only be releasing one track. You may have to unbolt the seat from the tracks to fix it if you cannot get to see under the seat. Clean tracks make for easy adjustment so clean out the dirty track

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

Driver seat bar for the seat adjustment forwards and back came off. How to fix it

just fixed mine - passenger side. I had to take the seat out, only (2) bolts in the back and (1) wiring connection. the handle has a hole that fits on a pin then connects to the plastic clip. very simple, I would bet nothing is broken just I could not do it with the seat in the car. once the seat was out about 30 seconds it was back on.
hope this helps

2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

Driver seat and steering wont adjust on my 95 740il

here's what you have to do:
#1. make sure the fuse to the seat adjustment is not blown, its usually a 10 or 15amp fuse.
#2. unscrew the cover to the controls on the driver's seat and make sure the harness is not loose or
broken, if the harness fails to attach to the control board correctly the steering wheel and the
seat adjustment will not work, this harness tends to come loose and even brake over time due to
the constant movement when you get in and out of your car.
I hope this solves your problem.

Automatic seat broken, How to manually adjust?

I am sorry but you cannot adjust it, there is no way to over ride the transmission that moves the seat unless you remove the motor, move the seat to where you want it and reinstall motor
