SOURCE: We have either the 9297

By turning the top part (umbrella) CCW you should be able to spin it out and see if the threads stripped or if there is something bent. You also can checkout the spring and make sure it is working and is not bad also.

Rear drivers side seat is stuck down on my Mercedes 2004 ml350, how can I get it to release and come up

The best thing to do take the entire back seat out then find the problem and fix it. also check in manual guide it could be anything from spring and anything else, if you have to press a button to raise the seat up and down first check the manual guide then check the fuse.

I have a glass bowl sink in my bathroom. The pop-up drain is stuck in the down position and will not release. How do I fix it??

You'll need to access back side of sink bowl and locate drain mechanism, most likely either the plunger rod has loosened up from clevis rod or clevis rod is positioned to far in towards drain line causing it to bind. Check diagram for assistance in locating parts.
Is the plunger rod tight or loose? You can also loosen clevis screw and see if the plunger rod will slide freely. If it does try moving the horizontal pivot rod up and down, while doing this you should she your drain plunger moving up and down. If it does not then most likely will need to replace plunger mechanism by removing the retaining nut on the back side of the drain line. This will allow you to disassemble the actual drain plunger but I would definitely start with the mechanism of the stopper and clevis where it attaches to horizontal rod.
Sounds like a simple binding. Always be sure there isn't anything stored under your sink which could be causing the problem. Sometimes the most obvious is the last thing we look at.
Good luck.

My decolav pop up drain will not open. I have to screw it on and off to use the drain.

If you can remove the pop-up part you probably will find it is clogged with soap residue and goodness knows what else. You will have to disassemble it, making note of the parts order and scrub all parts clean using an old toothbrush. Reassemble the pop-up in the proper order and you should be back in business

I have the Decolav 1201 SS sink under-mounted to my granite counter. It appears that I need a special drain as none of the ones I saw available are for sinks that are the thickness of stainless steel...

Did you add the rubber gaskets so they are on the underside of the sink? If they are on the underside of the sink, then I think you're modification is a good one, and I'm not sure the gaskets are the cause of slow drain. Not sure what would cause the last inch to drain slowly. Now, if the gaskets are inside the sink bowl (i.e. visible from above) and the drain tube is elevated up from the base of the sink bowl, then there's is a likely source for the problem...

Drain won't close

hi, the button can come out of the drain hole either by unscrewing it or some simply pull out, once it is out there is a threaded bolt attatched to it this can be adjusted by screwing it in or out

You will need to reset the basket strainer using plumbers putty. Is there a garbage disposal installed? You will need to remove it to get to the basket strainer.

Stainless Steel Sink Question

s with most things, your stainless steel sink WILL scratch with use. However, over time as the sink ages, scratches will become less apparent and in fact blend into the surface. Minor scratches on the inside surfaces of the bowl may be blended into the sink by lightly rubbing a Scotchbrite pad in the direction of the finish grain. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with water and towel dry after this procedure, removing any particles left over from the Scotchbrite as you rinse.
