How To Manually Move A Power Seat Dodge Ram

Have you ever had to move a power seat in your Dodge Ram? If so, you know just how unpleasant and time-consuming the process can be. But don’t panic; with a little preparation and some basic tools, moving a power seat is actually not that difficult. In this blog post, we will discuss the steps you need to take to move a power seat manually, as well as some helpful tips that will make the process go more smoothly. Armed with this information, you should be able to tackle the task with ease!

Tools You’ll Need

1. You will need a seat belt cutter or another sharp object to remove the belt from the power seat.
2. Locate and unhook the electrical connections on either side of the power seat by pushing down on each clip and pulling outwards.
3. Once the connections are free, use a flathead screwdriver to pry off the bottom of the power seat cushion.
4. Remove the screws that hold the bottom of the cushion in place and then pull it free.
5. Carefully remove the old cushion adhesive with a hair dryer or heat gun, being careful not to burn yourself on any bits of wire that may be hidden underneath.
6. Flip over the new cushion adhesive sheet and press it into place over top of both sides of the old one. Use screws to secure it in place, making sure that all edges are equally covered.

Disconnecting the Wiring

You may be wondering how to disconnect the wiring for a power seat in a Dodge Ram. This is an easy task that can be done without having to remove any bolts or screws.

First, locate the two black wires connected to the power seat assembly. To disconnect these wires, use a standard electrical jumper wire to connect one wire to the negative terminal of the battery and one wire to the positive terminal of the battery. Hold both wires together while turning the key in the on position. The power seat should now move freely.

Removing the Seat

If you’re like most drivers, you probably don’t want to have to remove your seat in order to get in or out of your car. But if your power seat doesn’t work anymore, you may have to go through this process. Here’s how to do it:

1) Turn off the car and remove the key from the ignition.

2) Remove the screws that hold down the seat with a Phillips head screwdriver.

3) Lift up on the seat and pull it out of the car.

4) Invert the new seat and replace the screws. Replace the seat panel and tighten all screws.

Putting the Seat Back on

If your rear seat is not adjustable, you may be able to put the seat back by manually manipulating the lever that reclines the seat. To do this:
1) Open the door and place your left foot on the lower edge of the cushion behind the driver’s seat, so that your left ankle is resting on top of the gearshift.
2) Push down with your right heel and slide your right foot toward the front of the vehicle. You’ll feel a resistance as you move your foot; don’t use too much force or you could damage the seat.
3) Grab hold of the upper ridged bar in front of you and pull backward while keeping your left leg stationary. The lever should start to move; continue pulling until it clicks into its fully reclined position.
