Driver's seat does not...

Driver's seat does not 'catch' all the time when going from full forward to reclined back(convertible). Sounds like it's stripped, but usually catches eventually.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2004 Sebring LXI

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sebring yourself? What have you tried so far?

Tried but the 'boot' covers it, don't know how to get at the ratchets.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

What's the fee?

Mechanic's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Chrysler Mechanic. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

Ok, what might the rest be for a mechanic?

Sorry, we got dropped . 2004 conv with power seats
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Bad time now, dinner. Was hoping to have the fix in text so I could do it tomorrow.

I can send you the repair procedure. You will have to replace the seat track assembly. There is really nothing servicable on those tracks. Would you like the procedure?

Is it fairly easy, like no specific tools or really involved?

No special tools required, but you will be removing the entire seat before replacing the assembly. It is about an hour and a half job.

I will get the procedure together and send it to you.

The seat is bolted to the floor. I can get that done, then follow your steps to separate back from bottom, right? Any idea how much the piece might cost?

Yes that is correct. Figure on around $300 for a new one, or $75.00 for a good used one from the salvage yard.

but nothing about the reclining assy, right

The seat track assembly will have the reclining mechanism in it so when you replace that, you will be replacing the reclining mechanism at the same time.

that kinda looks like a big 'H' with stuff attached?

I suppose you could say that. It is a frame assembly with 3 motors that operate the the track up/down, fore/aft and recline. Purchase the track assembly beforehand. Then you will understand what you are replacing.

Last question, if doing the salvage route, does it have to be a 2004 conv seat?
You can go with a 2004, or 2005, but it does need to be from a convertible. The 4 door Sebring seats were a little bit different.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
