    Getting what information I can ready first.
    Planning on starting Sat morning, I was hoping not to have to make a botched repair. But hey why change the habit of a life time.
    In case its any help, there are more images of the internals of these seats at,

    and there is also a image of the airbag that was inside the seat on one of these at http://gmauthority.com/blog/2012/11/...pops-the-bags/

    The image at https://a.d-cd.net/20dde92s-960.jpg appears to show an in-line cable length adjuster on the end of the white fabric wrapped cable, that Angry-Engineer appears to say he lost an hour trying to rotate, thinking that it came apart (if I understand him and the Google translation correctly), not realising it didn't come apart and didn't need adjusting.

    If you are able to take and post any quality photos of the internals, and especially any part of the mystery white fabric wrapped tilt cable, particularly of what happens to it in the lower part of the backrest, they will be the first on the internet I am aware of, and could be very useful in developing a solution to fix this cable in future.

    There's a good selection of snippets out there but no one definitive guide so I feel another how to coming on.

    When the wife allows me to tackle the job that is.

    Do you know if it’s an MOT failure?

    Don’t think so because it’s not a safety issue. The seat still locks into position, you just can’t fold it forward. If you had someone stuck in the back at the time of the MOT, that might be a fail
