New problem and don't know where to start looking.

I moved the drivers seat all the way back for me and the wife went to get in it 2 days later in the 02 envoy xl and it wouldn't move forward.

The seat bottom moves up and down, the lumbar works, the seat back moves back and forth. I just cant get the seat to move forward and just here a clicking sound when I hit the switch to move it forward.

So would someone please tell me where to start looking. Thanks.

If you hear clicking (especially if you also see slight light dimming), then the switch control and the motor are probably working. A couple of members have reported mechanical issues with the track or debris blocking movement. Try getting under there with a flashlight and flat screwdriver to clear out the track or remove anything that fell into place that could be interfering.

Looked for debris in the tracks, nothing.

So tried the hammer tapping on the rear of tracks while flipping the switch to go forward, nothing.

Took a screwdriver and looked where the 2 silver rods go inside the tracks in the front and pried upward while flipping switch, viola it started moving forward.

Got the seat repositioned for the short 5 foot driver, now I am scared to get in it and set it for my 6' 2" seat position, fearing it will get stuck again :duh:.

Now that you know how to fix it: Move the seat as far back as it will go. Try moving it forward again. Put a piece of wood in the track long enough to keep the seat from going back to where it gets stuck. Or just keep the screwdriver in the truck.

hammer tap worked

I have a 2004 Envoy SLT and the hammer tap did the trick! Thanks for the tip!
