    i replaced the manual seats in the 97 with a set of cloth seats i found at the pick your part..The driver side is power adjust, and worked fine when i put twelve volts across. (I am not sure of the year of the donor vehilce...think it was 99 or so) Installation went fine..used 12gauge wire through wiring ducts next to door to pos on battery with in line 25 amp fuse..grounded right to seat mounting bolt. Using original harness from donor. Seats work fine..while driving..BUT I have returned to my vehicle on two occasions..one over night..and one 3 hours later..and fuse is popped. Nothing else on this circuit.. has blown a 25 amp, and a 30amp. Works fine while in use, but why pop while it is sitting??

You need a new or used passenger seat tilt lever. Mine broke also. There are a couple on sale on EBay for $30.00. See link, otherwise you can buy new from Ford for about $75.00.

1998 explorer passenger side seat lever / diagram


Find a seat at a junk yard. No one sells those parts. Dealers will only sell you a new seat. You spend 3 hours pull the covers and parts off the seat only to find out, You can't fix it.

Not likely any reset button. If both seats have stopped working it must be some power problem I would think. There is a control unit under the seats but I think there are two, one for driver and one for passenger. Change the fuse anyway, make sure you have the right one.

2006 Ford Explorer: Back seat won't fold flat to create flat cargo area. It folds down but not flush.


Okay so im just going to start from the seat being upright in a normal riding position.

1. You need to fold the head rests first. Pull the black tab under both headrests. They should spring into a folded position.

2. pull the side seat lever (on the door side of the seat). This will fold the top/back support down to an angle.

3. There is one more lever on the backside of this seat. Its in plain sight on the angled portion of your seat. Lift the big plastic lever.

4. While keeping the handle lifted, grasp the back of the seat and pull it torwards the front of the car. The seat should come unlocked and roll forward and down more towards the floor. If you have a bunch of junk on the floor, it obviously wont work. clear the path and the seat will fold completely flat.

Also, your drivers seat and front passenger seat cannot be all the way back, they need to come forward some in order for the second row seats' head rests to clear and fold flat.

I just purchased a 2007 jeep liberty sport


I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and the smae lever that tilts the seat also moves it forward and back. Press forward or back on the switch. Also check for blown fuse or a loose wiring connector under the drivers seat. Good luck, Techjoel

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...


the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.
