Default Help! Driver side seat recline 2006 PT Cruiser, Touring

New car (to me anyway)

Does anyone know how to make the driver side seat recline or in my case return to an upright position? Is there a trick? I cannot get the driver side or the passenger side seat, for that matter, to move an inch.

The driver side has an electric position adjustment (which could put your head through the roof if you are not careful, yikes) but the levers on the side of either seat avails me nothing, what am I missing?

Appreciate any assistance available.

The levers on the side do the adjustment of the seat-back. If yours doesn't, then somethings wrong, but I dought if both sides would be broke. Keep pulling up on the lever and move the upper part of the seat by hand.

I agree, it would be really bizarre if both were broken, so I keep trying (I am pretty strong) but I am really afraid I am going to crack off the plastic lever. I pulled while standing outside of car and sitting inside (no pressure on seat) nothing...I am at a loss.

I feel like an idiot crawling around this car looking for a secret button (it is like looking for your keys in the fridge...desperate).

I appreciate your responding very much - thanks, I will stop looking for a secret lever!

See if you can stop someone with a PT or go to a dealer and try their seat releases to see how exactly they should work so you can compare with what is happening to yours.

Thanks Guys,

I believe I will have to make my way to the dealership (I have already tried stalking other PT Cruizers but decided if I was afraid to pull that lever any harder they would be too).

Off to dealership...

Thanks for all the replies, really appreciate your taking the time

I will admit, my driver seat is very hard to move back and forth...but not from reclined to straight back up.

Let us know what they found so if anyone else has the same issue they, we, can forward them to this thread!
