06 TJ Front seat tilt lever/cable question
I'm still under warranty but any help would be greatly appreciated. Trying to figure out why my front passenger seat wont tilt forward to allow a passenger to enter the backseat. The lever on the side of the headrest has the same feedback as the working lever on the driver side. Drivers side works fine and I can see how the cable and latch mechanism SHOULD work but on the pass. side it looks like the cable may have slack or some other reason the latch wont engage. Rookie question but its nice to have everything working. Thanks to everyone for a well put together site and an excellent resource!
did the seat used to go forward? Try putting a little force into it, jsut incase something is stuck. I sometimes have to slam the front seat in my 04, but it always works.

Front seat tilt mystery continues...
Thanks mrsnicks I had not seen that page yet, however the underside of my seat does not look like the one in the pic on that site. Not sure if it matters that mines an '06 or if the Rubi seats are different?? Not likely but my seat has a manual slide under the front, a manual tilt lever on the side close to the floor then a trigger-type lever on the side of the headrest that should control the forward tilt for rear entry. Both lower levers work fine, its just the upper lever that wont engage. The movement on the drivers side(the one that is working properly) is so subtle that its hard to tell exactly how the cable engages the latch. I long for the days of the old style manual tilt on my trusty CJ7
