SOURCE: 1999 Dodge 2500 passenger side seat belt wont release

so after completely tearing the seat apart I found 2 wires going up to the seat belt mechanism from under the seat, these wires got caught in the seat mechanism underneath and were shredded. There must be a small solenoid inside the seat belt mechanism because I could hear it click after I repaired the wires(this circuit is live even with the ignition off) Im not sure how it all works but this solved my problem.

SOURCE: 2004 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab

jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be aware the back brakes are diffrent.........

let me know when you are ready for the back brakes.
do not blead the front ones if ou intend to do the back brakes afterwarwords......

if you are only doing the front brakes you must blead the the passanger side first......... if you do not have the bolts holding your caliber on than you will have a pin the you will take a hammer to and knock it out that will release them....

SOURCE: BROKEN HANDLE TO RECLINE SEATS ON 1999 S-10 EXTENDED CAB PICKUP

Ebay sells a replacement handle that looks exactly like factory handle but just screws on, it is a very common thing to break, as mine did.

Seat belt lock spring most likely failed causing it to stay locked. Requires seat belt replacement.

There is something preventing the seat from latching in the upright position. Look for a piece of cloth or paper preventing the seat from becoming fully upright.

There's probably something in the way. Get under and behind the seat with a flashlight and check the back end of the rails to see if something is there.

I have a 99 Silverado and the passenger side seat back will not lock back into the upright position. Locks fine into reclining positions. What could be the problem?


i had this problem on my 96 chevy, basically theres a set of ratcheting gears that lock the seat in place in the various positions. sometimes over time or due to abuse one side or the other gets stripped out and the seat will no longer lock into place. i found a ripped up seat on Craigslist that was in a part out truck and bought it cheap then took both seats in the an upholstery shop, between the junked out seat (15 bucks) and the labor at the shop (50bucks) it cost me 65 bucks to fix, hope this helps

1995 Chev Silverado 1500 extended cab, standard bed. Passenger seat won't latch. It just lays back all the way. What can I do. Or where to replace seat or rail.


you have a few options take the seat out and inspect it to see if anything is wedged in the mechanics of the seat I have seen debris cause problems like this . this is the cheap route if your lucky.
next route is probably whats wrong , your re-tractor is broke the gears inside wear out or sometime in a car accident they break also. you can try and purchase one new or go out to the salvage yard and find a seat that works and swap out your interior to the new metal frame. The salvage route would be more cost effective then new ..
Good luck

Wiring problems


Yes, but if you don't have a really good diagram for both, you will need to identify each function by trial & error, then remove wires in harness and put them in the right places in the harness plug Use original plug from old seat on new seat.Don't change anything in body harness.
