Check the vacuum diaphragm under the seat. That is probably where the hose was connected. You can manually release the latch by squeezing the diaphragm and releasing the locking hooks which are located on the inside of the metal brackets on the seat base.
Hi Mike,

Tom Hansen is the right guy to get the build sheet?

Two tone was the painter's suggestion, not factory.

I will hunt for the diaphragm underneath the seat... or do I need to unbolt the seat to get to it?

Thanks!

Slide the seat full forward. Depending on your arm size you should be able to reach it from the bottom rear of the seat base. You might be able to reach it from the front.

I looked underneath the drivers seat and I found..... a stereo amp.

Would you have a pic of what I should see. I have the MB book for a 1968 250C and diagram does show much of what I should find under the seat.

I will need to remove the seat. I can move the seat back and reveal two bolts, but moving forward I don't see any back rail bolts. Is that possible??

Ahhh! Part of the problem is solved. They removed the latching mechanism to install the amp. This explains the unattached vacuum line. They probably figured everyone would enter/exit the passenger side.

You can release the locking hooks using a long screwdriver to move the latches unless they did away with them. Look for a hook in the space between the pivot space between the upper and lower seat side supports. Put a little pressure to move the hook on each side while maintaining a gentle forward pressure on the seat back.

I imagine the amp is what is impeding the seat from full travel.

Gad. I hate aftermarket stereo installs.

I can't really say what I paid for the car publicly. If you were to say on the condition what the market would price it at, I could then say I indeed did get a good deal. And no, I didn't pay less than $2k for the car.
