    Default Jammed passenger seat

    Hello,
    Hope someone can help, just got the car a few days ago. Its an '04 plate 1.8ls. The seat is jammed stuck, checked for coins, checked the known good drivers underneath with a torch to see how it all functions. The cable seems okay on both sides as the rod that turns the release mechanism seems to turn, the only thing I can see different on the seat that doesn't work is that it doesn't make contact with some sort of bolt stud thing that I can only assume is a part of the catch release mechanism.
    I don't understand the whole workings as this will be my first attempt at fixing anything car related. If anyone has had a similar problem in the past, then some advice would be much appreciated.

    Surely the remainder of the 3 yr warranty will take care of it? Unless the car has done more than 60,000 miles or missed a service?

    You're right, just thought if it was easy to release it I would save the hassle of booking it in.

    Although I think the EGR valve has started to play up now, just a little sluggish taking off until the revs get up.

    So I think a call to dealer in order.
