    I have a 1998 extended cab with bucket seats. Does anybody know how to diagnose the cause of the Driver’s bucket seat back won’t lock in place ? Thank you

    A broken wire between the latches was the problem with one of mine.

    Check & see if there's anything caught up in the ratchet's gear. Thread, fabric, built up gunk.

    Can you replace just the mechanism on these seats? Mine won't lock in place and I've tried cleaning the mechanisms
