Front Seat Adjustment

The front passenger seat on my 147 won't stay locked in one position. When you pull the lever up to slide the seat bakwards or forwards it won't lock into position afterwards. Anyone else had this problem, and if so how did you fix it?

Re: Front Seat Adjustment

I had the same problem on my first 147 it was caused by the runners being buckled I think. Was fixed under warranty so I couldn't tell you how.

Re: Front Seat Adjustment

Try lifting up the lever at the front and slide the seat quite hard all the way to the back. Normally the latch gets stuck and doing that frees it up again.

Re: Front Seat Adjustment

There are 4 bolts that hold the runners to the floor (and the seat).

Take them out and have a good look under there to see whats wrong.
Just mind you dont damage any of the seat cables as you tilt the seat back (ignition off), as you may get an airbag light on the dash.
