Seat release handle on 3dr Megane

Postby Hoody » Mon Apr 30, 2007 4:30 pm

Hi all

Has anyone had a problem with the release handle on the seats in these cars. Its the one that lets you pull the seat forward and allow passengers to get into the back.

Went to pick up the folks on Sunday from there trip to Amsterdam and when I tried to pull the handle to let them in the back it was just loose, as if the cable had snapped.

Hi all, My wife has a 3 door with this same problem. Both front seat cables have snapped which isn't good trying to get our 9 month old son into his car seat. I have looked at this but can't see how to sort this problem out. Has anybody had experience of replacing this cable? :sad
