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.

There are only hookers and hockey players in Sudbury.
I don't play Hockey......wait I've said to much. :)

Seriously though, I'll try and get a photo posted. It's in need of a detail job. That will happen come spring, since I just brought it home Monday.
Nice car You and Nobby are going to make a hell-of-a-team; "The Green Whore-Nuts" !!!

It's the same colour as The PIG!

Pretty rare will be outstanding getting a pic parked together.

Do you have the lovely green interior?
I didn't need a picture. The color is in his profile.:D

Anyone else seeing the "like" on every post on this thread? What the Hell is that?

From the Mod board...

"FakeBook, it's here!"

Funny that.

The "like" has now moved to the bottom right corner.

Before...for was directly in the middle of the post.

In any event it's just a matter of time before Facebook goes the way of MySpace.

Once the grown ups get involved the kids flee for something new.
