Hi there. Check the seat lever and see if it is moving correctly. There may be a lock on the back of the seat that overrides the seat tilt that can allow the seat to tilt all the way back. If the seat is not able to work properly, then you can switch out the seat as long as the seat is the same and the position sensor can bolt up to the rail on the other seat. Plus the mounting bolt holes will have to align up to mount the seat properly to make the seat secure. If you need further assistance with seat not tilting, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
