Question about 1999 Chrysler Concorde
After reclining at a rest stop, seat would not return to full up right position and would begin to twist or rack to the console side almost up in position.
Question : Are there two motors that may be out of sync at the stops? I am afraid of doing much as I don't want to end up with a partially or full reclined back as I need to drive this car everyday. Any help short of (costly)replacement?
If it's anything like seats in GM's there is only one motor for each "function". They use a small gear box, with shafts and gears to distribute the movement to both sides of the seat. You will see a few motors under the seat also. Depending on how they made them, the recline motor may be under there too.
The cost will vary, and that's only IF a replacement part is available. Sometimes you have to get awhole new seat (some leather Caddy seats are close to $2500 EACH - ouch). You can always scour ebay (just do a search for "concorde seat" - theres actually a guy selling the entire lower rail assembly as i'm writing this)
Some seats have a factory unzippable cover. This may or may not allow you access to poke around in there.
I would check for any obstruction caught up in the pivot of the seat or near the area where the shafts / gears meet the tilt mechanism. It could be anything really, but coins tend to be the majority of the culprits! I've found that trying to lay on your head to find them is a pain, and you always miss something. It's easier to unplug the power to the seat, take out the 4 bolts, and turn the seat upside down in the driveway and shake out whatever is caught up in it.
