Passenger Seat Backrest Won't Recover from Retracted Position 1988 300 SEL
Hello . I appreciate becoming a registrant to BenzWorld. This is my first posting, so correct me and forgive me if I breach etitiquette .
Passenger seat is retracted, way back. Can only raise it slightly with either the preset switch OR the manual switch, each stopping at the same position. Will move down and then back repeatedly within this very small range. If I can just return it to upright position, I don't care if it ever moves again.
I plan to do battle with it over the weekend but would appreciate any information that could be offered As a minimum, I hope to access the switch leg and manually activate the motor with a 12 volt jumper. Wiring color code from switches to motor would be helpful. A schematic would be an absolute Godsend. Also, tips on removing the panel from the passenger door would be most helpful.
What is confusing to me is that the manual switch doesn't supercede the preset positon as logic would seem to have it.
God bless anyone who can help me out.
