how hard is it to repair ranger seats?
The drivers side seat back broke on my 2002 Ranger. So I bought some explorer seats. The ranger seats are perfectly fine except for the drivers side seat back will not stay up at all now. I know what bolt broke but really I dunno how I would replace it and I cannot believe that there was only this one little bolt holding the seat up. I'm hoping I can fix the seats and try and make back some of the money I spent on the explorer setup.
BTW Explorer seats break just as much also. I took the best looking seats I could find which were gray cloth and all the power options worked even the lumbar. I noticed that it didn't have a lever on the side for the tilt. I said to myself thats odd but I looked at the explorer right next to it and it didn't have one either. I assumed since it was full power it didn't have the lever. After I got it all wired up and swapped the seat belts over from my ranger my brother stopped over. He owns a 2000 Explorer with 100% the same seats and he had the damn lever! I then went back to the junkyard and 6 out of 7 explorers had the lever broken and the only one with the lever was a busted up leather seat. I"m going to keep it since its power and I can live with it but damn 6 outta 7 with broken handles that just shows you how well ford made these seats. On all the seats it looks like it broke in the same spot which was right where it mounts to the track. Can I get a new one or will I just have to live with it? Rant over! Goodbye...
