My driver seat wont recliner and renault want £500 to fix it (trying to rip me off i think), they said it needs to whole new back but they have tried to over charge me before so i dont really trust what they are saying.

hi this sounds like the coiled spring that is enclosed behind the cover where the recline lever is it has either broken or the pin it locates on has snapped or spring has for some reason slipped its fastening ? try removing cover and investigate the spring and its locator points

hello dschlig, most common for these seats are the motors. I would recommend raising the seat as high as possible. While trying to activate the seat in the forward/back positions, see if you hear or feel a clicking in the motor under the seat. The motor can be recognized closest to the carpet, and has 2 rods going to each seat track. If the motor clicks, inspect the connector and make sure nothing dislodged it. If it is ok, you can use a small hammer and an extension and lightly tap the motor to see if it will maybe release. If you know how to use a volt-meter, you can also check for power to the motor connector when sliding the switch in either direction. The motor can be replaced seperately.
