Rear seats not sliding


Recommended Posts

Ok, i was cleaning the Alphard after working away for 2 months. One of the rear seats was in the upwards position so that the wife could get shopping in and the other was in the normal position. I wanted to move the seat (NS) to the upwards position so i could clean the carpet, however, the seat would not slide forwards or backwards.

I then lowered the seat on the other side (OS), clicked it into place and raised the back rest, and that seat will also not slide?

Anyone ideas as to what the problem could be. The seats were working fine before i left. The only thing i know that happened when i was away, was that the wife ran the battery down. I didn't think that the locking mechanisms were electric, but mentioning just in case

I think that there needs to be 2 clicks to properly lock the seat into place before trying to slide.....

I would put the seat down flat, and drop all your weight across the entire flat seat to make sure it's fully engaged before tying to slide.

Make sure that the seat is lined up correctly to the arrow on the side of the vehicle too.
