seat catch driver side, I don't use this anyway because it does not recline and is always jammed at the bottom, new catch and cable booked in for now, I did ask Ford how much for a new seat and being Ford you can only buy a seat in bits ! The base frame was around 400 so I binned that idea. Breakers yard in future maybe try and get a seat that works.

Never had a problem with mine until the cable snapped, I changed the able but now its stiffer so probably only a matter of time before it breaks the catch

I was actually trying to free it up as I had a journey to make with 4up, reclined it manually with the adjuster wheel, pushed seat all way forward, got in back with a big flat head screw driver to prise the hook whilst reaching with my other hand just lightly pushing the lever open and it just broke out.

Been looking at a few sts today and even the ones with 5k on the clock have broken seat catches
