ive just got my st3 and worked it out, pull the leaver and tip the seat forward the slide seat base forward so passenger can get in. once your passenger is seated tell them to push the back of the seat forward while pulling the base back towards them, it will then slide into it's remembered place and then they can let the back come down and lock in. my lad can do it! lol.

Hmm looks like I may have a fault then I've tried many times just and it just slides straight to the back,tried holding the lever not holding it,setting seat really forward and still no joy,thought it was me had three other blokes from work have a go,I will have to move the child seat over to the missus side till I get it sorted

I did not realise this until I read a thread on here some months ago! Not sure if the manual explains it properly


Just to make sure you are doing it correct -
You have to pull the lever and bend the seat (back rest part) forward quite hard until it locks, and only then slide the bottom of the seat. Maybe you need to get back into a proper position before it works?
The seat stays locked then, and you can move it back to remembered position before using lever to unlock again.

hi mate. fold the seat back forward, slide the seat towards the stering wheel. then push the seat back hard! and it should lock! then when you slide the seat back it should return to its original position!
if not then its
and bring it back to your dealer to get it fixed.

I have the same problem that I cant get it to work. Thing is I think it may be a fault as I am sure I got it to work once or twice at the start but now it does not want to do it.

ON that thought I am going out to the car to try it now...
