Passenger seat mech

Is there a way to get the passenger seat to stay all the way forward when in rear seat access mode? It seems to stay about halfway forward on its own, and it only stays all the way forward if you hold it there.

I looked at the mechanism and it doesn't seem to have a provision to pull/lock it all the way forward for back seat entry. Has anyone tried adding a spring or latch to allow this?

Re: Passenger seat mech

So the 1982 seats stay forward? Anyone know about the late model seats?

Re: Passenger seat mech

Not sure i understand Exactly what your asking, 86XLT seats may be different (armrests both sides) but do you depress the latch on the console side first to bring the backrest forward, then release the spring latch seat bottom?

Thats how mine works and will ONLY stay up that way but if your insinuating laterz have a track, mine dont its fixed. [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img]

Re: Passenger seat mech

Yeah, the later models have 2-stage slide tracks. The back tilts forward a bit then the whole seat slides forward on the tracks.

Re: Passenger seat mech

Im not familiar with that mechanism but i wish i had something better than my fixed seat bottom, my 10 year old son is bigger than i am and can no longer squeeze thru there, i may have to upgrade to a 1 ton crewcab [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
