    hi all quick question,

    when you lift the handle and slide your recaro front seats forward, are they meant to stay forward until you push them back?

    my passenger seat sometimes stays forward and sometimes slides back to where it was set.

    my drivers seat just tries to slide back straight away, and it goes ALL the way back, not just to where I had it set.

    what should they do?

    They slide back, depends on how lubed the rails are...also find it very annoying, especially getting a baby seat in and out!!!

    Total **** design of the seat really. It doesn't help that the s3 seat weighs half a ton too!
