Should bring up a hit.
Here's a repair walkthrough I found...

Hope it helps...

DrewG So it does absolutely nothing? Like, it doesn't even make the seat back come foreward and the seat go to the front without tumbling? My guess would be the cable/rod/connection inside the seat. This assuming it did it before. I'm pretty sure some TJs didn't do it from the factory. I have been wrong before though, and it would not entirely surprise me if I were again.

Daily Driver Yea, pull it ...nothin. Sorry there both of my front ones.

DrewG Yeah, like the front seat or the rear? My drivers seat does not fold up period, I'm pretty sure it's not made to...only the passenger's seat, only i've usually got too much crap in the passenger's footwell for that to function correctly...never had a problem with the rear seat folding forward, though...not sure if that's a function of the sixtel keg in the back or just good karma for having one there...

Hammerwalk Are you talking about the tumble feature by pulling the tab on the seat at about shoulder level?

Help with my front folding seats!

My seats seem to be all intact, they just stop folding down and then up. Any help would help.
