    Front Seats

    Hi there,

    My passenger front seat wont flip forward now has anyone else had this trouble and if so does it mean getting a new seat or can the existing one be fixed. Its in a 3 door 1.8 sport on an S plate

    Thanks

    Ricky

    both of my seats have gone in my coupe. its the cables that snap. fitted 1 myself. took 2 hours 2 fit. still not right. mate works 4 vauxhall, hes given me mechanics phone number who does afterwork jobs coz it wud cost a fortune. if uve got the bottle go 2 a vauxhall garage and ask 2 see a mechanic. pull him 2 1 side and get his number, they all do it. + its handy 4 any other probs u get.
