Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
If it's manual, it is all mechanical. I had the same problem a couple of years ago on my 1997. I ended up taking apart quite a bit of the seat and found a part deep inside that was broken. I don't remember the exact details, but I remember that if the part had failed completely the seat back would have suddenly dropped backward to a fully reclined position; could be extremely dangerous if it were to happen while you're driving it, so you need to get it taken care of ASAP. The broken part wasn't available from the dealer; they'd only sell it as a larger assembly, which was very expensive. It would have been cheaper to buy a complete new aftermarket seat, so I got a replacement part from a junk yard.
