    Vert seat tilt mechanism not working

    Looking at the parts diagram, there are two cables. One from the handle that releases the tilt and another that goes on from there to release the slide. Are they broken, stretched or detached?

    Item 11 is the "Slide release cable". The other cable from the handle is No 24.




    you need to locate cable 24 to make sure it is connected and or check the cable for the tilt of the seat back has the correct tension on it, so it pulls cable 11.

    This is what I found and how I fixed it

    Many thanks to Times5 for providing the above information

    just to add if you feel the above mentioned cable has stretched you can source a brake cable end such as in the picture below, this will hopefully provide you with enough tension on the cable
