2003 Fiesta Black seat tilt

6 posts in this topic

Hi, newbie here. I've just bought a 53 plate Fiesta Black. I'm tickled pink with it.

The drivers seat tilt mechanism to allow access to the rear seats isn't working. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks.

you can try to push a screwdriver underneath (between the fabric and the plastic)either side of the lever at the top of the seat then plastic lever can be pulled from the top of the seat. If your lucky the lever has broken ,if not the plastic part which is attached to the cables is probably broken. I think this and the cable are all one piece,and you'll have to replace the cable mechanism. The lever on the top is about £14 from Fords.

When I lift the lever there is no resistance. When lever is up I can see end of cable. Looks like a piece of the plastic on the lever is broken.
