Can anyone help with a loose seat back on the passenger's side. I can move the back of the seat an inch or so each way quite freely.

Any ideas on whether this is just a loose bolt or wear and tear?



Life’s too short to be a pr!ck, which is why I only read decent forums, like FORDMODS!

I've got the same problem in my mont. Id be interested to know also.
If I have my seat lent back far enough it wont do it but as soon as the misses jumps in and puts it forward it rocks forward when you break. Drives me batty.

I've found sometimes after attempting to clip in the seat, the wire gets out of shape.

Try to reshape it, also try standing up in the back, facing towards the rear and use your shins to lever the seat back and press down with ya hands.

I'm 6'3" and can do it, so its not that tight a fit!



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.

I've had this a few times in other cars, and basically just removed the seats, and tightened bolts - worked every time.
