Customer Question
Third row seat, 40%...

Third row seat, 40% one will not raise. No activity or sound when i press the button

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

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

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

Yes I am. I tried to manually pull up on the seat to make sure it wasn't jammed. I also raised the flap to see if any motion was noticed in the motor and there is none. No sound, no movement. Just dead.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Auto 184000 i try and do all of the work myself. Replaced two rear wheel bearings, CV axle, alternator

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

No, thats it thanks

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
