    Default Rear seats wont lock into position

    OK found my first problem with the SRi!

    The rear seats don't lock into position properly! They engage but no matter how much force is used they will not lock so with a little effort the seats come forward without needing to use the release lever. The mechanism will lock manually using your finger but the part that engages into the lock from the side of the car doesn't seem to engage far enough to lock the seat into place! As far we can tell it's always been that way though. Serious safety concern for rear seated passengers obviously!

    Has anyone else experienced this or know of a recall notice issued? I'm going to take it into a main dealer tomorrow to get them to look at it. I've had a search on the site but can't find anything.

    Yeah, I had the very same thing the first time I put my back seats down.
    Took it to the dealers straight away because of the safety aspect.
    A technician came straight out and banged them back so hard I thought he was gonna break them!
    (He said it was a fairly common problem.)

    Did the job and worked well ever since.
