As a true test of compulsive maintenance try this: with the doors closed and engine running and you sitting in the driver's seat - can you push the passenger seatback forward? (same goes for the driver's seat but you are sitting in it so you can't push the seatback forward.) I'm not talking about the entire seat, just tilting the seatback forward as if a passenger were getting in. There is a vacuum system that is supposed to latch the seat backs so they won't tilt forward. The vacuum system should be latched when the engine is running and the doors are closed. There are vacuum switches integrated into the door-open switch that release the seat latch vacuum, and there are also little buttons on the side of the rear passenger compartment that also release the vacuum so that a passenger in back can push the button and push the seat back forward. I have never seen a car with this vacuum stuff working so I'm curious as to whether or not it works in your car. And you might be curious as to what those little strange buttons are on the side in the back seat - they are the vacuum buttons.

As you said you have never seen one that worked - this one does not work either. I may have to look into it, se if it is possible to get it functional again.

Thanks everyone - The feedback is great!!!!!
