The flip the release lever up on the top seat release doesn't work (Top of seat left(driver side)of the head rest)on our convertable, the lower flip release lever works fine. The upper lever pulls up but doesn't make the seat go farward to let someone in the back seat, the lower lever works fine.

It sounds like you have a control rod that was fallen off. You will need to remove the seat and then flip it over to inspect. There could be a small rod that has come disconnected that will need to be reattached. Here are diagrams below to help you see what I am talking about. Check out the diagrams (Below) Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

The seat is stuck in a forward position and the lever does not work to allow the seat to move forward or backward.

You will have to remove the seat and see what is broken, you may be able to fit a new lever or the compleate actuator may have faild, you will just have to see which has failed.

Front passenger is stuck as far back as possible. Manual, not power, seats. How can I free it up?

Check to see if anything is stuck in the track. Also, make sure the lever is releasing the seat.

If you can gear the motor running, the guide is off the track. You have to remove the seat out of the car, and place the guide back on the track.

If you can't hear the motor, chance is the motor burned out.
