2010 Outback electric seat dilemma,-need inside scoop

Recommended Posts

I have a 2010 Outback Limited, the  seat back on the passenger side only reclines on one side and twists beyond straight up. The dealer during a service told me it was likely a broken seat back, not a motor issue. I planned to remove the seat and disassemble but I moved the seat all the way forward to look at the bolts and it would no longer move back, only forward. Now my wife has short legs but not that short!  So now room to get at the front bolts is very limited.

Has anyone had experience repairing seat backs, maybe have an opinion if it actually is or is not a broken seat back?

I assume the back and forth issue issue is a motor, but is there a manual release so I can get the seat to the furthest back position?
