  1. Remove the bolts and nuts that attach the adjusting rails to the mounting brackets.
  3. On vehicles equipped with electrically operated driver's seats, unfasten the front and rear lifting, sliding and reclining motor connectors. After the seat is detached from its mounting, carefully determine how to maneuver the seat from the vehicle.
  5. Manually operate the seat adjuster lever to ensure that it moves smoothly and do the same for the reclining knuckle. Lightly coat the adjusting lever and tracks with white lithium grease or silicone and work the lubricant in by manually operating the adjusting lever. Wipe all the excess lubricant from the adjuster mechanism. Check the adjustment lever for excessive wear and replace as required. Check the seat-to-adjuster mounting bolts and all screws for looseness and tighten as necessary to 28-38 ft. lbs. (38-51 Nm).
  7. Installation of the seat is the reverse of the removal procedure. Tighten the mounting bolts in an even and alternate pattern.
