Yep i agree with conepopka you may also have a wire about 3mm in diameter which conects both slide actuaters which may have become dislodged as it is of a simple hook construction investigate it yourself it is quite a simple mechanism and can be diagnosed easily by removing the few screws in the cover on the outer side of the seat

Sounds like a cable problem. There is a Y cable that runs from the inner side of the passenger seat behind the plastic trim. This is a single cable. Goes under the seat and splits to go to each side. When the seat is folded forward it pulls this cable and releases both sliders. Toyota Part Number 72210-89105. It is about 30 dollars. check out these pictures: If you have anyother questions let me know.

Fix rusted broken small spring under passenger seat it slides back and forth

go to your local hardware store, parts store and buy an expansion spring. cut it to length and bend a new tab on the cut end . fit it to the lever and it will work a treat. Most auto seats have the spring but you will have to upend a seat to get it out as it costs too much for the junk yards to do it.

Have a 1999 Chevy 1500 extended cab. Driver seat is not powered. Won't lock into place, keeps sliding back and forth. Was told I have to replace the whole seat and sliding track by Chevy Dealership. Anyone...

Remove the seat assembly turn it upside down cables come off the handle you pull on to slide seat, Follow these cables to 2 pawls that pivot on tracks and see if they are broken,bent,or just stuck and need cleaned and lubed.If you need new track slider assembly I use to be able to get them all the time from GM parts department and just replace tracks themselves.

My passenger seat won't lock into position. It slides back and forth as I drive and the bar that you pull on to move it back and forth is stuck in the up position.

There is a spring that pull's the handle back to lock position that might be broke or the locking mechanism might be gummed up.the spring can't be bought seperatly so check a hardware store or replace the seat track assembly.

Power seat switch

It is most definitely the seat slide motor. Most infiniti drivers seats have three different motors. I30, I35's and QX4's all had problems with the seat slide motors. You can tap on the slide motor which is under the front of the seat and it will probably work for a little while, but it WILL stop working completely. There was actually a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue because there were so many vehicles that had this problem. I hate to see that guy waste money trying to get a circuit board rebuilt that absolutely will not solve the problem.
