Front seat 1998 pathfinder

My manual front seat won't move forward in my 1998 pathfinder. it moves about 1 inch then stops as if something is blocking the rail/runner. any ideas? how do you remove the seat to get a better look at it?

I had this problem with my Pathfinder and it was a coin jammed in the rail of the seat. My coin was on the right side of the seat blocking it from moving. This has happened to me twice. I took a tool to get it out it was pretty hard to see but you shouldn't have to remove the seat to get it out.

Why does driver side power seat suddenly just move back and forth for only about a 1/4 of an inch?


These devices use motors with worm gears to provide the smooth operation and torque necessary to move the seat. The most common problem, other than the motors themselves failing (and since your does move somewhat, the motor is probably OK), the next biggest issue is something gets caught in the gear drive. Get a good look under the seat and see if there isn't something jamming the forward-backward motion of the seat.

Where is the drivers power seat relay located


This is a really common problem with Pathfinders. I have seen 3 that have had this problem. 1. Disconnect battery. 2. Disconnect the power connector under the seat that is connected to the seat motor. 3. Spray electrical connector cleaner into connector. 4. Reconnect the connector. 5. Tap on the electric motor with a small hammer a few times, and try to turn the output shaft with pliers half a turn (if you can reach it). The seat motor is about 4 inches back from the front edge of the seat, center. 6. Reconnect battery. After doing this to ALL 3 of the victim vehicles, the seat began to work again. Also: look to see if something has not fallen into the seat track. I have found bic lighters sometimes get jammed in there nicely. Lastly, if none of this works, then try pulling the seat forward by placing your hand in the gap between where the seat bottom meets the seat back, and move the switch while you are tugging on the seat.

1997 Sable Driver Seat Only Moves 2 Inches At A Time


Could be the switch, but it sounds like the motor is going bad. However, I dont know if you tried to lubricating the tracs. Some of these seats are on ball bearings and some on nylon bushings, either way they need to be lubricated once in a great while. Have you tried to help the seat to move by pushing in the direction it is going to see if it speeds up. If so, the seat motor is going out or the tracks are binding up. I hope this helps.

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

How do you lay down rear seat flat?


I just bought a 93 GMC Safari Van and couldn't figure this out either. Luckily, I did have the manual. It appears that the  lever under the front of the sofa moves in forwards and backwards. There is a lever on the corner of each side. Lift up on each and pull cushion forward. Also, you can push on the back of the sofa to help it go down. Hope this helps!
