1990 reatta, the back of the two seats come forward with slight touch, is this safe?
I am afraid the seats are broken, as there is no latch on the back of the seats. I was
given this wonderful car by my uncle and want to take good care of it. Thanks heidi
they usually do not lock unless if a sudden stop makes the pendulum swing into lock position.. same as my 89 riviera.
dear jason, thanks for your answer, should I have them checked to be sure that the pendulum is working can a good mechanic tell ? Thanks for your help. Heidi
not necessary, sometimes it would lock if i drove around a SF hill. in that case, i would use the bottom latch to release the seat. ..at that age, i'd be doing more preventative maintenance with the drivetrain. transmission oil & filter, fuel filter, sparkplugs & wires, coolant, hoses, and rubber parts. preserve the leather seats & dash with leather preserver.. lanolin ingredients help.
thanks again. I will take your advice on the maintenance. Your great. Heidi
also, it is best to look in the owner's manual in the glovebox for the maintenance schedule. happy motoring, J
