seat sliding

the drivers side seat on my 95 d90 unlocks out of it's position and slides all the way back... usually when hitting the brakes! i'm not that tall so the last position is too far back to be comfortable. i had the seat out last night and really couldn't figure out why it's doing this. hoping i don't have to get a whole new one...

has anyone had this issue?

The grab handle has a tab at the end of it that directly engages the slots on the slider track. Pull the seat cushion and you can see it. Its probably a case of not pushing the grab handle all the way down to engage a slot.

yea i was trying that (JimC) ... pushing the grab handle down and making sure that both tabs/sides are fully engaged into their slots. it worked for a while but then out of nowhere the seat flies back. it's a real shocker when it happens. it's like the tabs are finding their way out of the slots.



Jeff - Tallest1 is actually a reference to The Black Crowes... i know, it doesn't make sense.

I had the same problem with my seat. When climbing steep and rough uphill sometimes it would slide all the way back.

For a while I just put some wedges under the tabs to force them into the slots. Later I just switched the passenger and driverside seat parts. No more slip but the recline lever is on the wrong side. Not a big deal, sort of like having the ignition switch on the left side of the steering column.
