Punto 3 door seat problem

Hiya - I've got an on/off problem with my mark 2, 3 door puntos driver side seat - see it moves back and forward fine, just sometimes when you use the side lever to tilt and move the seat forward the back won't click back into its upright position when you slide it back - had real problems today took ten minutes of back and fore to get it to finally click into place, once its in its fine but don't really want to drive around with the seat back pushing on my back, lol, plus its probably not all that safe. Managed to get it to eventually click into place this time but its sure to happen again. Anyway this problem happened before and the garage i bought it from fixed it (had to take the seat out etc but it got fixed) problem is i was under warrenty then which i'm not anymore. And now the problem has started up again (the fix lasted bout 6 months) - anyone know whats causing it or whether theres something simple i can do that'll fix it??? Its ok for now - guess i'm just gonna not have to use the drivers side to let people get into the back until i get it sorted - bet the other one will go then, lolol. Anyway any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Punto 3 door seat problem

There's a little spring on the inner side of the seat, you can see it if you move a plastic cover with your fingers...it goes from the release mechanism to the back and is attached at the back...see if this gets stucked, cause till its stucked the seat is free to move, try to move the mechanism to which it is attached and see if it goes all the way back in place
