Driver side seat will not adjust foward or backwards

With so much little time and 2 kids to keep care of and if anyone has kids they know what im talking about lol.. I have an issue that im sure can be fixed with a little time. My drivers side seat is stuck into one position and will not adjust forward or backwards. Is their something im missing ? or am i missing some kind of spring , i found a large spring under the pass side seat when i first bought the car i thought it might be the reason why the front seat doesnt adjust. Any advice will be helpful, thanks in advance

It could be a broken spring, imho, I would take the dr seat out and see if anything is missing. You might also want to get some white lithium grease in a spray can from your local auto parts store and spray in the tracks as well. hth

Re: Driver side seat will not adjust foward or backwards

I agree that it could either be a spring is broken, or one of the thin metal rods that connect the seat adjustment lever to the actual locking mechanism on the seat tracks. I have detailed photos of the seat tracks (removed from the car/seat) from when I repaired/resoterd mine. I can send them to you, if you want to compare to see what could be missing/broken on yours. I think they are too big to post up here.
