Seat Back Adjuster - Misaligned

2390 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.

Ahyup, those pull and turn, rotating a cam that will raise or lower the seat track assembly. Not a lot, but it makes a difference.
Anyone else seeing the "like" on every post on this thread? What the Hell is that?

From the Mod board...
