Broken drivers seat...

Well my POS Driver seat has broken again. First the lumbar support thing broke, just snaped.. dont care I dont use it anyway... but then last night I sit down and it snaps again and kinda falls a little.. think nothing of it till I got to lay the seat forward.. the damn spring broke!

So my questions is.. is there any way to get in there and fix the spring, or am I SOL?

Sorry. Sucks when there is no help =(

I dont know anything about the seats. I had something like that happen to my Eclipse right after i bought it (Seat would not stay in position. It would slide forward or backward without touching anything). I just went to a junkyard and bought a whole new piece that connects to the seat. You might beable to do the same. Not sure because I really dont understand what broke on your truck.

You know when you pull the lever and the seat moves forward and slides forward. Or when your sitting there and go to adjust it and there is a little resistance pressing back... well mine just falls back when you pull the lever.. I'm sure its a spring somewhere in there.. piece of crap..
