Having problems with your 2002 Nissan Maxima ?
CAN YOU MANUALLY RECLINE A POWER SEAT THAT IS STUCK
What do you need reclined? The back rest or the seat bottom? 02 and 03 Maximas are notorious for having power seat problems. My SE the power seat would not move forward or back but the back rest would recline. I ended up purchasing a motor from the dealer - it came with the tracks - and installing it myself. Took me about two hours as you have to pull the seat completely out and undo the bolts at the bottom that hold the tracks and motor in place.
Only 4 bolts hold the seat in they may have a plastic cover on them that can be popped off with a screwdriver.remove the bolts and lean the seat back check the wires going to the motor and make sure it has power going to it.Don't know of any way to manually recline the seat without taking it apart.
