1992 300ce passenger seat problem

My passenger seat will not unlock the backrest for passengers to get in. If I have the button pushed and the car on but in park, with brake pedal, with car off, no matter what it will not unlock. I suspect a broken vaccuum line to it somehwre. But where to start looking?

Also the passenger door will not enable or disable the alarm anymore. I suspect too a broken connection or somethign unplugged. Where would I start looking for the problem to this? The door does lock and unlock the doors, but it just does not disable the alarm from there. drivers side and trunk work as they should with the alarm. I guess I could throw an aftermarket alarm back in it, but I like having just a car key and house key in my key fob, L(

its a 1992 300CE, 102k on the clock. Car was recently at the bodyshop, and entire trunk was dismantled and repaired, so might be something in there?

Also rear deck was out and rear seats, along with exterior panels ont he doors, and maybe even the door handle, but I dont think they needed to remove that. Rear glass was out too.

I suspect I should look in the tunk first.

Thanks,

Alon

Reading all that was done to the car.. Odds are they took the passenger seat out to get the rear seats out.. or at least thats the easy way.. I also wonder if the gas door and trunk locks are hooked right.. would bet you have a leak in the locking system.. or if the seat locking system is unhooked it will cause the locking system to not work... It will all just take time to trace out and see what you find.. Look under the passenger seat and see if you find any unhooked lines..

they didn't remove the front seats, just the rears, easy to get out without taking out the front seats.

I suspect too a vacuum line for the seat.

As for the passenger door alarm not arming or disarming the system, That I have to look into as well, only two problems, neither too much of an issue, but I would like to tackle them in my free time.

Anyone else have ideas of where to look based on what was taken out?

Whole trunk was replace, new floor etc, new trunk lock mechnism and all, so any ideas? I have to do some work int he trunk anyway for my stereo equipment mountings...
