How do I repair the second row sliding seat?

Asked by Jan 01, 2014 at 11:15 AM about the 1999 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 c1500 suburban.  The second row sliding seat does not slide forward.  I have
raised the seat and the mechanism works manually, however, the levers that operate the
mechanism seem to be somehow disconnected.  Suggestions?

MY SOLUTION The plastic piece that always break is not available from GM. You have to buy the whole riser part with the rail. The dealer wanted $240 so that was out of the questions. I then tried several glues to fix my the plastic part but it does not hold since there is just too much force in that small plastic piece. MY CHEAP FIX My fix was to drill a small hole through the break and then use a strong wire to hold it all together. I twisted it to make it tight. So far it have hold up.

There is a piece on ebay being made for this that I bought and it works perfectly.....Cost 15 or 20 and saved money because I didn't have to replace the whole seat. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400885439171?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
