Get back to where you bought it for a replacement - these things HAVE to work perfectly to keep your child safe - don't try to "fix" it you could live to regret it.

Why wont my Nissan drivers seat move forward and back?

check for the release wire fully releasing the lock on that side. when you pull on the release lever it is to pull both release locks so the seat will move.

How do I replace driver seat lever assembly?

You didn't say if lever was broken or just not releasing the lock. If the latter, remove the seat from the floor, turn it upside down, reconnect the wire/rod to the lever that pulls the lock on the right side of that seat. Wrap a wire tie around it so it won't come out again.

My family fix isofix base will not release the maxi cosi car seat We pull the lever and it doesn't release the car seat Is the unit broken or can it be fixed If so how can I fix it Or if it is broken is...

Hi Melanie

To override release the carseat from the base, use a pair of long nosed pliers to reach the wires that are inside the base. They can be accessed underneath the grey button on the base. Pull the wires toward you and the carseat can be lifted from the base.

This is an issue with the base, not the carseat, so the base needs to be sent in for inspection and repair required. Please contact the customer care team for further assistance. 87985515-e848-4733-8df0-f4baae5e6226.jpg

Maxi cosi pebble broken handle

The seat must not be used with a broken carry handle. The carry handle provides vital protection to the child in the event of an impact.

If you're in the UK and the seat is under 24 months old return it to your retailer with proof of purchase for them to send to the engineers for inspection / repair required under warranty terms and conditions.

If you're in the UK and the seat is over 24 months old or you no longer have proof of purchase you can book in for chargeable inspection / repair with the customer care team on 01284 413 141 Mon-Thur 08:30-17:30 / Fri 08:30-16:30 (Excluding Bank Holidays) Standard charge is 39.99GBP and this does include courier collection and delivery.

If you're not in the UK please visit and select the country you're in, then choose the Contact Us tab on the right side of the screen for your enquiry to be sent through to the customer care team in your country who will assist you further.

Pt cruiser stuck middle seat belt

The problem:
The set belt stop has been lost so the seat belt retracts too far when the seat is laid flat. When laid flat the release mechanism lock as it should when not level. So the seat cannot be raised up as the belt is too tight and locked.
The Solution:
1) Push the two little clips to release and remove the headrests.
Pull the grey lever on the right of the seat base, lift seat base up and forward toward the front seat..
2) See two red capped leversat the back of the two seat hinges and lever them to the upward position, this releases the seat.
Rock the very heavy seat unit upwards and lift complete unit upwards.
3) Take it out of the car and turn 180% so that the back of the seat and base are in the upward position and the seat belt will pull out as it should
4) Replace the missing belt locking stop (I used a tie pin permanently fixed using super glue).
5) Fold seat back down and test then either re-fit seat unit or leave out to decrease fuel consumption..

The drivers seat sliding mechanism is broken..I need to replace or repair

most likely any SL seat 91-00 will fit so start calling around to junkyards and take a look on eBay and Craigslist. Shipping will be very high on something that cumbersome so stick with local junkyards and Criagslist, the newer and lowest mileage donor vehicle is best and something about a matching color as well. You may find when you get the seat out that the cable from the release lever is broken and you can fix that with a piece of heavy wire and wire clamps from a hardware store. Two horizontal bolts in from the front, two vertical bolts at the rear, disconnect the wiring harness and the thing is out of the car and easy to inspect the seat bottom.

How do i remove the drivers seat in my 99 chevy silverado? I need to figure out why my seat will not slide back and forth when I pull on the seat adjust lever.

Probablyt because the little wire cable that activates the release mechanisms on both sliders is broken, and therefor only allowing only one slider to release when you activate the seat adjusting lever, and leaving the other one engaged, preventing you from moving your seat. This is relatively easy to diagnose, if you know what to look for... Just try to see what all moves when you press your lever. See if there is a wire cable that is activated anywhere under your seat it should be relativley close to your lever and run across the open space to the opposite slider.
