    Hi People,

    Hope you can help, all of a sudden when you lift the handle at the side of the passenger seat it used to slide forward aswell but now doesnt?

    you have to actually pull the handle then pull the fron handle at the front of the seat to be able to slide it forward? any ideas at all?

    thanks ppl

    The problem will be with the handle on the right hand side of the passenger seat. Pull off the lever (pull plastic lever towards the back of the car) using a pair of pliers. The plastic cover then pulls off (pull towards the drivers seat). There is an allen key bolt in there that will have come loose, tighten and it should work!

    No, other side. There is a bar that links the handles on each side and i think the allen key bolt head is only on the right hand side of the passenger seat. This bolt just comes a bit loose. Easy fix!
