Hi!!
Just remove the two front and two back bolts fastening the seat to the floor, you'll need a 13mm or 14mm wrench remove the seat from the vehicle, turn it upside down, straighten the lever and if the spring cable broke, you can add a piece of steel wire same gauge as the one that broke. Bend both wires, one into a hook and the other into a loop, slide the hook into the loop and close the hook, attach the other end to the lever, making sure the mechanism works before you re-install the seat.
Good Luck!!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Drivers seat on Peogeot 307 wont slide forward or back, when you pull the bar at the front one side releases but not the other, it stuck fast...need help..how do I free it off?


the lever activates cables to either side of the seat runners
one side has broken or come off
reach under the seat (from the back gives the most space and replace or re-clip that cable to the bar

Third row seat latched on left but not right


I just ran into the exact problem with my 2004 Suburban. Once I got the seat to lay down all the other mechanisms worked as they should and I could get the seat in and out as usuall. I found this post below which explained how to get the seat down. Wish I could take credit for figuring it out on my own but I can't.
"After working on it for a couple of days here is what I did to remove the 3rd row seat.
On the rear lower right and left side there are plastic covers, if you push the seat material forward a little you can see a hole where a nut holds it on, remove the nut. On the left side pull back the plastic cover and you can see the wire and the lever that releases the seat. With my foot holding up the #1 release lever on the right side I used an open end wrench to push forward the left side lever and the seat folded down.
I then used the #2 and #3 levers to remove the seat.
To view the whole cable, open the lower seat cover, it is an overlapping plastic clip, My problem was a loose cable, similar to a brake cable on a bicycle, after fixing it I have had no problems."
To remove the nut I used an 8mm socket wrench. My problem was not a loose cable but the #1 mechanism wouldn't pull up all the way, I'm guessing because that left side locked in out of order. I pushed that left side lever down with a hard tool and had my 5yr old daughter pull up on the #1 and the seat folded right down.
Hope this helps if you havn't already gotten it fixed.

2nd row, passenger side seat will not slide forward after you tilt the seatback forward to allow for rear entry. Is there something that is locked or anything I should be looking at to fix this?


There is a little green plastic clip that is attached to the cable and pull lever, if you trace from the pull lever and cable to mechanical lever then to bottom of the frame it is on the bottom half of the seat, you will see it once you flip up the seat bottom over , on the black metal frame is where the clip is at, towards the bottom and facing the other seat frame that your not flipped up. well anyways the green clip is probably broken, or the cable came undo( which I doubt) the clip is a weak point in the seat mechanism , you wont be able to find it a retail automotive stores, dealer item only , that's if they even carry it anymore, or you might try a junk yard and look around for another excursion seat or a f250 or super duty and use that one. I've heard that you might be able to use the American door lock clips plastic hardware, they are suppose to look alike, but ford wont tell you that. The kit is at AutoBodyToolmart .com Part # 9914 for about $26.99 , that's what I heard. Good Luck !!!

HOW TO ADJUST DRIVER'S SEAT IN HYUNDAI ELANTRA


There is a lever on the left side by your **** that tilts the seat forward or back. There are knobs on the side that you turn to raise the seat front up or down, there is a handle under the front of the seat that you either pull up or pull to the left to slide the seat front or back. And depending on the seat there might be a lever on the left side of the seat back that controls how much lumbar support.

Remove seat from second row in Honda Mini Van 2007


on the passenger side feel under the seat and there is a lever that pulls toward you as you stand at the sliding door.

First, raise the armrest, then lower the back all the way forward. Then remove the headrest sit it out of the way and while pulling the lever under the seat towards you, lift up the seat from the back so it tilts forward. When it is standing on its "nose" lift first one side shifting it either forward or backwards to clear the rod on which it is hooked. Do the same with the other side of the seat and then lift it out. Installation is the reverse of removal.

The other seat is much the same, though sometimes the lever is a little different but in the same place.

Good luck,
bob

2001 PT Cruiser right rear seat lever won't release seat so it can tilt forward; like a cable snapped. Is there a way to release it without tearing apart the entire seat?


Mine does that too,It`s as if the cable has stretched.
Seat can be released by using a pair of long nose pliers and pulling further on the seat cable

GAS TANK LEVER 2001 NISSAN ALTIMA


If you can't glue the handle back on, e.g. with urethane glue (gorilla glue, Elmers Nano, etc.; use as directed, cleaning lever and plastic cover with soap and water just before gluing) then you can just buy a part like Nissan 84640-9E000 (1998 Altima exact replacement; Nissan call it a Handle- Trunk & Gas Door Release.)

That will work fine as long as the gas filler door mechanism isn't messed up; go check for obstructions once you open the door, presumably by using a small locking pliers over a cloth or some rubber on the lever (or the cable wire.)

The trick is, you get to replace it with the door open; use a blade screwdriver to pry the running-board trim up, unscrew the bolt on the trim to the left and pry that off, undo some expander bolts holding the carpet across the running-board area, and wrangle the carpet away from the lever you want to replace.  Some 10mm wrench work gets the lever loose, and you tilt the loosened stuff forwards to be able to remove the cable.  Regrease the bolts and cable run as well as you can.  Thread the new handle through the carpet before you bolt it in; it's harder to set up and bolt, but you don't have to cut the carpet or remove the seat!
