I have a 98 Suburban with a front bench seat. Lately the front passenger
will not stay in the locked position. Is there a part in the seat I can
replace? How difficult is it? If I took for repairs, do I go to a body
shop, or an upholstery shop?
Hope someone can help...
Before going wild, check the cable going from the adjusting lever on the
drivers side to the passenger side, bench seats always seem to get a lot of
stuff shoved under them and perhaps something is holding the cable, or has
bent it , not allowing the lock on the passenger side to fully engage. The
cable is usually a solid piece of stiff wire about half the diameter of a
Also a little bit of lube on the pivot point of lock assembly, with age
they crude up.
