passenger seat beeps and seat belt light on in dash

Hi folks.

I removed my sheep skin seat covers off my 1996 SL320 and now the passenger seat does not go back all the way and the seat beeps for about 30 seconds. I also have a seat belt light on the dash. Can you tell me how to get into (take apart ) the seat and see whats causing this problem. I am also looking for a service manual on CD if anybody has one to sell. Thanks in advance

Seats Beeping in SL320

I have noticed on my SL320 that when you operate the car and the seats are not in the proper position, it alarms you with a beep. I would start by moving the seat completely forward, and folding it up. Look for the switch notifying the system that the seat is in the down position. I think that when you removed the seat covers one of the elastic straps may have hit your switch and corrupted it. Good Luck.

I'd just make sure nothing is blocking the seat from going back, tilt it ahead and look between the upper and lower parts. maybe, if nothing is found, try pulling the chrome backrest release handle and then try putting the seat backrest into the normal position. The beeping is going to continue until the backrest is latched, this is normal. Never seen a backrest that refused to go back to the normal latched position. I agree it may be a good idea to move the seat forward as far as possible. There is a proximity sensor which prevents the seat backrest from contacting the rear areas of the car. If the backrest is reclined back, the seat bottom moves ahead, this is very cool to try out. OR if the backrest is reclined, then the seat is adjusted rearwars, the backrest will come to a more erect position. What probably happened is that the backrest was reclined, then you tilted the backrest forward to remove the sheepies, but then you also moved the seat backwards to help get access to remove the covers. Now it's hitting something in back, some trim or something, so just try moving the whole seat forward and then the backrest will latch.

Could be the rest of the sheep stuck in there, since you only removed the skin.

Sorry, couldn't help it.
