I need to remove by driver side seat to repair. The right side of the back support portion of the seat is leaning too much backward, which is very unconfortable. Could any one gave me some info of how to repair that ?
Thank you for you time.
Any suggestions will help.
Sincerly yours.
Peter

Peter, what kind of car are we talking about here?? You may want to set up a signature with the car in it.

Benzmac.
I apologize for that. I have a 93 model 300E W124.
About posting the picture on. I am not sure, because I don't have a digitial camera.
But the seat looks and feels like it is leaning a little too far back. When you look at the seat from a stright view, it is leaning a little backward towards the passenger side.
I am thinking about take the seat out and take it apart , and try to figure it what's wrong with it.
Thank you for your time
Pete

okay .. I think I should illustrate the problem more clear. Okay .. I will now divided the whole driver seat in to three portion. The head rest , back protion and the seating protion.
The back protion is bolt on to the seating protion, and there is where the problem excess. The right side of the back support protion ( where the adjustable arm rest located) is kind of leaning backward or could be the left side is too much forward. Which makes the back support unbalance !
Everytime when I put my weight on the arm rest, the seat will be back to normal. But as soon as I let go of the weight the seat will move back to the same position as it was. Which is very uncomfortable !
I am not sure if the back portion is twisted or not , I haven't remove the seats yet. ( would such removeal cause fire ? )
I really hope someone would help me solve this problem, because it hads been a while.
Thank you for your time
Peter

take your vehicle to a upholstery shop have them to check it for you.
I think your seat back frame is twisted.

I have seen this problem before and the seat back was out of time. The seat back adjuster has two gears at either end and one was ahead of the other. How it got this way was a mystery. I took out the seat and layed it upside down. Then a took apart the gears and clocked it correctly. It worked fine.

So do I have to take out the whole front seat ? then do the adjusting ? if I removeing the seats is necessary, would I need to unplug some electical plus, seat beat tensioner plug, air bag plugs etc ?

The only ones you have to unplug are located directly under the seat. None are SRS related don't fear. And yes the whole seat has to come out for the repair.
