Seat Back Adjuster - Misaligned

2393 Views 31 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  nobby
Hi all,

In a quest to make myself fit better into my 79 450SL I was turning the seat adjuster knob and the seat became misaligned.

I.E - The left side of the backrest is more forward than the right side. :(

Does anyone have any advise and it appears to be not turning the gear. I sprayed some penetrating lube on the gear itself in hopes of freeing it up but didn't have any luck.

Any advise is appreciated.

and once in there remove the cable from 1 side, align the seat and re-insert the cable.
Just turn the levers to raise or lower (think you have to pull on them first).
