Still issues with my rear seat

Its still not clicking into place like it should. Why did they have to go use the mounting system in the w126 like it is.. the w123 version was cake.

My mechanic did something but its still not clicking on those damn mounts at all.. I am really getting fed up with this crap.. No matter how much I jump on the seat, bang on the mounts, tap the seat with a mallet.. nothing gets it to click into place...

can the mounts be replaced? I have no idea what a W126 seat mount looks like.

I dont want to remove my rear seat out of fear it wont go back in like it is. But the mounts are two holes in the seat bottom that slip over a blunt nose cone type of connection with a slit in the side for a spring lever to go into.

Those nose cone things are fine... I really have no idea what the hell is up.. I've never had an issue putting a seat back in all the way and clicking into home position in a w126.. except for this damn car.

Does your rear seat recline? Maybe it was to be in a certain position.

Maybe you need some new things like this.

I know what you need.

A rear reclining seat --- they actually have a small bolt and nut along the front edge that bolts the seat to the reclining\sliding mechanism.

It must be misaligning somehow. Have you examined the bottom of the seat cushion and the receptor cones?

I can't remember if I ever had my 126 seats out. I don't remember having trouble if I did.
