The spriong goes across from the actuator handle to the other rail lock. Look for a bracket on the other side that unlocks the seat from the rail when you pull it. The spring goes there. If this doesn't help, please get back to me, and I will try to find a picture to help you.

SOURCE: Front driver seat adjustments.

I just had this problem fixed with a Tech 2 tool in my '03 yukon xl denali. The seat has a control module underneath of it that controls the 2-position memory, the power seat functions, etc. It needed to be reprogrammed - about $200 at the dealership, or free if you 1) have a good relationship with your service manager, or 2) own or know someone with a Tech 2 tool.

At first I thought it was because I had a Canadian model truck (the headlight switch is stuck "on" at all times no matter what position it's in, and the rear air controls are in celcius and not farenheight).

I'm assuming the switch worked before, and you may have encountered some sort of electrical issue (like a dead battery, or you gave someone a jump, you have a bad ground, you just installed an aftermarket stereo, you used a computer tuner, etc.).

Hope this helps!

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.

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Camry drivers side power seat stuck

Most common problem is corrosion inside electrical connector to the motor. Either replace or clean out connector. Disconnect battery before doing any cleaning of connrctors. If connectors are a-ok then use voltmeter and see if B+ is making it to seat motor.
If it is then motor is defective . if its not then remove position switch from connectors , use a jumper wire
and jump connectors and see if switch operates motor. If it operates motor then the switch is defective

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Drivers seat won't go back only forward. Need help fixing or taking seat out. Is there a video?


Hi Maryann:
Seats are usually bolted to the floor so removal involves kneeling on the ground (with the door open) and looking under the seat. Use the appropriate socket to remove the bolts and the seat will lift out. There may be some wires to unplug.
You will probably find that the slide mechanism is jammed or a spring has come off. Repair should be straightforward.
Cheerfuls.

Repair seat slider on


If I remember right, the coupe models would allow you to slide the seat forward if the seat back was folded to allow access to the back seat.
You will probably need to take the seat out of the car and turn it over to look at the linkage. There may be a broken spring or rod that is not releasing when you try to move it.

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 do i remove the front seats of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


On W-Body vehicles, the front seats are secured to the floorpan by two front hook attachments and two rear bolts installed to nuts welded to the floorpan.
The manually operated two-way front adjusters provides only fore and aft movement of the seat. When the seat adjuster handle located on the front seat is pulled up, the seat adjusters unlock, permitting travel of the seat. When the seat is in the desired position and the seat adjuster handle is released, the seat locks in place.
A power operated six-way seat adjuster is available. The adjusters are activated by three 12 volt, reversible, permanent magnet motors with a built-in circuit breaker. The motors are energized by a switch bolted on the seat side panel.
The three motors drive the front seat and rear vertical actuators and a horizontal actuator. When the adjusters reach the limit of travel, torque is absorbed through the rubber mounted grommets located between the motor and the support. An overload relay is provided in the circuit and will open should excessive stall be applied.
The optional 60/40 split bench front seats have seat back head restraints on the driver's and passenger's seat back. The head restraints are designed so they cannot be removed from the seat back without first inserting a small rounded tool inside the head restraint support tube to release the locking tab. The 60/40 split bench seat is equipped with a reclining mechanism on both the driver's and passenger's side. The recliner lever is located on the outboard side of the spring cushion. When the lever is pulled upward, the spring loaded dual linear reclining unit located in the cushion frame is released, allowing the seat back to be pushed rearward or allowing the spring loaded reclining unit to bring the seat back forward.
Bucket seats are equipped with manual reclining mechanisms. An optional six-way power seat adjuster is available. Some bucket seats are equipped with inertia seat back locks. This system allows the seat back to fold forward without requiring the occupant to release a locking lever or access to the rear seat area. During a sudden stop or deceleration, or if the front of the vehicle is nose down, the inertia system of the seat back lock will engage, holding the seat back in its rest position. A release lever is provided to allow manual release of the seat back lock when the vehicle is in the nose down position. The release lever is located at the lower rear outboard corner of the seat back.
Some W-Body vehicles (notably Pontiac coupes) have passenger front seats equipped with an E-Z Entry device. This is actuated, in an unoccupied seat, by completely folding the seat back forward disengaging the adjuster, and sliding the front seat forward to gain access to the rear seat area. To return the seat to its normal position, return the seat back to its rest position, and slide the entire seat rearward, engaging the adjuster.
W-Body rear seats are available in several styles including a rear seat with an integral child restraint device.

The lever to move the driver's seat forward and backward doesn't


The reason is that your sliding grips have been slipped and therefore jammed at one position.

Remove the seat open it's sliding grips and replace it.
