    Mine doesnt slide anymore when i lift the seat handle to let passngers into my car. I have a few days next week to work on this. Is this an easy fix and what do i need to know before getting started.
    I have already taken the rear cover off the seat......

    I need to do this soon as I have a very loud clicking from from the sliders which is annoying me.

    I'm just going to remove the seats and inspect the sliders and hope for the best :)

    Chrissy - from memory ( as i did this a few months ago ) There are 4 clips which need to be undone so to speak. Ther are 2, 1 either side on the seat on the top corners. I gently placed a long flat head screwdrivers and GENTLY prised it out of its locator. There are then another 2 clips in the middle of the seat that require the same procedure. Be careful as i managed to break one of these clips. They are quite flimsy pieces of metal and i will need to get some of these but dont know the part numbers. I hope the seat mechanism has just undone itself from a cable. ( heres hoping! )

    Had this issue as well, got it to the garage, cost me 20 Euros to fix. People at the garage removed the seat and did... something and it's working like a charm again.
