    Passenger side tilt and slide motion not working

    Out and about with some friends the other day and my mates missus tried to move the passenger, she tilted it forward but didn't pull handle up far enough so it wouldn't slide so naturally the dozy bint tried to elbow it forward instead..... So ever since she did that the tilt and slide feature doesn't work atall, it will tilt forward but not slide, if you pull the adjustment handle up under the seat it slides easily on the runners so its nothing trapped in them

    Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what it mite be? Maybe a bolt of cable has undone or something not really sure how the linkage works

    Thanks

    Bugger thought that mite be the case, where would I be looking for this clip? The underside presumably so more than likely seat out job?

    Just founded the problem (fiddly as hell to remove) but yeah as you said it was the black plastic clip that cracked. Was very awkward but cant do it in the car if you jack the seat right up and slide it all the way forward. Just gotta get a replacement now

    Probably much easier with seat out, I peeled the seat back corner back and unhooked the small material strap, then unclipped the small cable on the seat base which made it easier to pull the black clip out the way and off. Just trying to source replacement clip now
