    Hey guys, had a passenger in my car there and he raised the seatback to a more upright position, it went up ok but now wont go down, its not jammed forward as far as it will go. it moves up and down ok, and the lumbar support works fine.

    anyone any ideas and whether it's costly to fix - need it done asap as i cant get any passengers in it at the mo!!

    Thanks

    Should be an easy and simple fix. There are 2 small micro switches fitted under the seat to the frame work. These can snap off or come off and get crushed between the frames. They are there to prevent the seat going too high or low and jamming the motor mechanism.
    Suggest you take the seat out and check these are intact.
    Shouldn't cost more then a pound to fix.

    Worse case is the switch is faulty in controls and then would be big money.
