Greetings fellow Ford owners
The centre RHS seat ratchet on my 07 S-max had failed and the seat back will not stay in place. It is so bad that you can grab the headrest and pull the seat out of position. This is a major safety issue and a serious inconvenience as I now cannot use this seat and need to use one of the rear seats.
I have spoken to my local Ford dealer and have been advised that they need an hours inspection (at £90 plus VAT) to detemine what the problem is - I daren't think of the total cost
Is this a known problem - we generally park the car with the RHS against the kerb and have used this seat for rear access - but I wouldn't expect a car that is less than 5 years old to exhibit such a failure.
Thoughts, comments, suggestions welcome
