Drivers seat in Suzuki Vitara 2006

Our drivers seat in our Suzuki Vitara 4WD 1996 collapses backwards and does not lock. We don't appear to be able to see the locking mechanism and what is causing it not to activate.

You will have to de-trim the seat back to access the mechanism.

2006 suzuki will not engage low ratio

Driving on what? dirt,ice?what?
2006 is 2nd year of option AWD
is your car awd?
or part time 4wd used every year to here>
if not AWD

4L is never for dry ice free pavement, ever.
on both AWD and PT 4wd
the operators guide says that and the damage word.
read it , lost it? we have it.ask...?

KNOB, see the word lock, ,
means it's not AWD in that mode. 2L lock is part time only.

this page coves all VITS made
from sidekicks ,tracker and newer, say 2006 or so...

even shows AWD part id 23 that does all that magic.
with AWD. but never in 2L lock.
no center differential in 2L lock, at all.

and is a danger drive, using it wrong.
to you, others and windup damage to car.

that only half the story, the page above
covers lots more.
the rule in 2L is this.
one tire needs be on ice, or dirt.
or bad happens.
same with PT box.

true for VIT and jeeps. lock or part time 4wd

2006. How to go from 4wd back to 2wd?

XL7 or XL-7 (not same car)??????????????????????
lost the glove box book?? wow, that be scary for other on your road.
are you even on a road, offroad.or on ice? where?
which 4wd system do you have, we are to guess that?
sure you can if awd, turn the knob.( if no knob its not AWD)
do so moving as slow as possible. dead slow.
in the PT system you need to be on ice or dirt
or the gear box can lockup in 4wd.
do so as slow as possible saving the poor dog gears.

on suzuki , 2004 introduces AWD
some started in 2006
and is an OPTION day 1, buying 4wd cars.

im guessing GV Xl-7?????????????????????

the book is here
read that.first (note the dash between L and 7 !

posed this over 100times. eva search first//
got this?

yes or no.
this is what matters most,

I have a Suzuki 2L diesel 2004 Grand Vitara and recently the 4x4 does not disengage even though i have put the lever back down to 2. Eventually after a few hundred metres it disengages back to 2 wheel...

hello and greetings. you did not say what driveline options
were purchase when car was new. so, can not answer.
but if car is PT 4wd, I can. if not get it fixed, by any 4wd shop.

the car is full time 4wd or AWD ?
the Part time 4wd must not be driving on dry pavement.
so drive to dirt or grass or ice and then shift back to 2wd

there is a TSB from Suzuki on wind up.

sure , the 2004 options statement here. and the rules for PT 4wd.

Suzuki Grand Vitara/Escudo -full-time 4WD using limited-slip center differential, off-road 4WD with selectable center differential lock and low range transfer case 4 mode (4h, 4h lock, 4l n), traction control and electronic stability control
Suzuki offered as an option AWD for Grand Vitara's in 2004 (XL7 too) Some Suzuki AWD you can not use lock on dry pavement, so read the operators guide carefully.

suzuki sells the operators guide if lost,
$4 day pass
$25 for full pdf.
