UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.One common caused for the seat to stick can be caused by a failing recline motor. Inside the seat back on both sides is the Power Rear No. 2 Seat ECU (computer) Try Power and grounding the recline motor and see if the seat back will come up. If the seat will not move with power and ground applied then that means the motor has failed.
If it the manual seats then something has to be binding or locked up. Unfortunately with out being there to see it I can not say for sure what is failing. I will open the post back up and hopefully someone else may have something different to offer. If they can help they will post back.
