I am having a problem with the drives seat, manual not memory. When the seat is moved forward to allow a rear passenger access, the seat does not return to the place where it was but goes to the rear most position, this means usually the passenger gets squashed legs and me the driver have to re-position the seat every time. I have removed the seat and sprayed release agent on all the underneath parts but it still does not work as it should, I will add the car has only covered 25000 miles, any help appreciated.

It seems that you don't have power seats. If that is the case the issue is with the seat hinge. You may want to remove the back pannel from the seat and lubricate the cable that goes from the release to the hinge.

If that does not fix it the issue is the hinge itself.

Any recent accidents or damage to the seat?

I don't think you will solve anything by spraying release agent.

 

Since this is a manual set, this is most likely a mechanical issue with the seat. I'm sure your seat has been moved thousands of times since you had it, and it can easily wear off the small nuts and bolts. As Mercecedesmanic pointed out, it might be a hinge, but if I may add there might be a problem with the hinge holder itself.

I will not suggest you go out and buy a new hinge unless you figure out the real issue.

Since you are already good at fixing cars (which I made out from your post), try to check if its a hinge problem or something else
