heh...I am hosting the Rockin Red River Ruckus Road Rally this weekend. I need to install my Mr Mike seat covers.
The thing is...the seat adjustment latch is not working. I can't get to the rear anchor nut next to the console.
I am counting on you Mission Control.

This happened to me a while back. There is a thin wire that attaches the two lever adjustments on each side. The wire probably broke and you'll have to blindly find it reaching under the seat and pull on it so you dis-engage it from the seat rail while you are pulling up on the lever at the same time. Just be careful your hand/fingers are not in it! If that doesn't work maybe you can get to the nut with a closed end box wrench. After removing the seat I repaired mine by replacing the thin wire with some nice thicker gauge electrical wire. Good luck!

Cliff if you have the other seat out, look at the bottom, and you will see how the two sides are connected by the little wire. Both sides have to be released for both sides to move . Sometimes you can remove the nuts just a 1/4 turn at a time, real pain but I have had to do it. That was before I knew about the little wire trick. Good luck

Thanks guys. Just got done working on the other side. I knew about the wire which pulls on the locking tabs. I think my problem is with the tracks being misaligned and it being jammed up. Time to bust a knuckle, .

Cliff,
A quarter pound of C4 and a denator will remove the seat. It not real good for the Fiero but it will remove the seat.

Never, never do anything or wear things that you don't want to have to explain to Paramedics, it can get very embarrassing. They talk!
