Q: Seat lever that moves the back of the seat is broken

asked by on

The lever on the side of the driver's seat that moves the back of the seat is broken. That part of the seat cannot be adjusted anymore.

It sounds like the seat lever may need replacing. The only place to get such a part is the dealership. I would recommend having a technician from YourMechanic come and replace the lever as needed.
