My 2010 camaro driver seat is stuck in recline. I've seen others say theirs are stuck forward, but I seem to be the only one with it stuck in recline. All other seat features work. (minus seat warmer)

Click on the link. I'd have to check the recline seat motor wiring circuits, You can see the wire colors in diagram, voltage and ground. The voltage and ground circuits switch depending on direction, up or down.
You could remove seat motor, use jumper wires off your battery for voltage and ground, you would reverse the wires depending on direction, You probably should use an inline fuse, just in case. If the motor only operates in one direction of nor at all, have to suspect the motor. That is a no load test. If the motor works both ways, I'd have to check mechanical linkages or gears that the motor uses, to see if anything broken?

SOURCE: The drivers seat is stuck.

This is a seat slide motor assembly problem. I worked for an Infiniti dealer for many years as a service advisor, and this was a common issue on these vehicles. Most of the time you can take the **** end of a screwdriver and tap on the motor from the front of the seat and it should start working. It may work for a while but it will most certainly stop, how soon depends on how far gone it is. Eventually it will quit working altogether and tapping it won't work either. As a service advisor we probably replaced a hundred of those things. Last I knew the part was about 280.00 and about an hour labor. I would not take it to someone who doesn't really know Infiniti though as you may get the car back with an air bag light flashing or something. Dealers really don't try to rip people off, they generally want to do the right thing as they want you to come back for all your problems, keep that in mind.

SOURCE: Drivers seat stuck in recline BMW 328i

Take the seat out and turn it over, to see if the gears are stripped, or if something simply became unattached.
It is needs expensive parts, consider a junk yard, or if really desperate, steal them from the passenger seat. Worst case, just lock it into one position that is best for you.

SOURCE: 2003 lincoln town car forward and backward driver seat won't work

The only way to solve this issue is to extract the seat and inspect. The front and back movement is different from the other actions that the seat may be able to do...

Look for damaged, dirty and miss aligned track components.

SOURCE: Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward

There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.

Mitsubishi Outlander 2010 driver seat stuck, the seat wont recline backward? How do I go about solving this frustrating issue?

May require removal of seat upholstery to gain access to linkage. Might be best to check with an upholstery shop as they probably know all about this.

Motor on the seat may have gone out, contacts in switch got dirty or worn, or assembly reached limit and stuck. Try sitting in it pushing back hard and adjust. If not youll need to replace switch,b take seat apart to fix or replace.

Veracruz driver seat

Hi tlocker,

Sorry to tell you, but if we're talking about an electrically operated seat, there's no short cut....The seat will have to be removed and then you'll have to sort out why the motor reversal does not work....Could be a bad connection..... If it's a manual operation then you'll have to find out where its stuck....

Best regards Johngee10

Front seat stays in the reclined postion..

The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.
