Driver's seatback won't adjust?

We've got a 2003 that has an issue with the driver's seat back. It is stuck in a permanent semi recline position that is extremely uncomfortable to drive in. The recline adjust on the inboard side of the seat does not work. Is this repairable or do I need to replace the seat? I'd like to at least take a look at the machanics of it to see if it can be Mcgyvered into a more upright position. How do I remove the plastic back of the seat?

Any comments/suggestions would be appreicated.

Thanks,

Allan

So, I was able to fix the issue based on a post on this site. Unfortunately since I haven't made 15 posts I can't attach a link to an "outside URL" even if it is from this site. Anyway, the info is here, you just have to look for it. It saved me the purchase of a new seat frame and a 6 hour drive. I really appreciate that. When I hit 15 posts I promise to attach the afore mentioned link.

Thank-you.

Allan
