Problem with Seats
Feb 07, 2005 - Park City, UT - Front Assembly, Recliner
I HAVE CONCERNS OVER THE DRIVERS SEAT BACK IN MY 2000 GM YUKON XL. EVERY TIME I SLOW OR STOP THE SEAT TIPS FORWARD. THE SEAT BELT IS ATTACHED TO THE SEAT BACK. I HAVE INVESTIGATED THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM AND HAVE FOUND IT TO BE THE GEAR BOX DRIVEN BY THE ELECTRIC SEAT BACK MOTOR HAS PLAY IN BETWEEN THE GEARS. WHEN CHECKING INTO REPLACEMENT PARTS THERE WAS A NOTE ON THE GM COMPUTER THAT REPLACING THIS PART WOULD CORRECT SEAT BACK MOVEMENT WHEN VEHICLE STOPS. I AM CONCERNED THAT IT WILL BREAK LOOSE IN THE EVENT OF A COLLISION FORCING ME INTO THE STEERING COLUMN OR CAUSING LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE.
