Drivers seat mechanism
« on: 22 May 2021, 07:55 AM »
The bit that allows it to go backwards and forwards and up and down. Dismantled this some time ago when I was refurbishing it. Thought I could rely on the parts diagram, it's worked before, but not this time. Not at all clear. I know I should have photographed it but I didn't. Any one got anything that might help? Eternally grateful.

Well just been told look on YouTube. Don't know why I never try it until everything else has failed. Kent Bergsma has an excellent series on seat repair.
