1999 Ford Mustang v6 drivers seat problem

i searched for other threads that have been started to answer my question but did not find any. i own a 1999 ford mustang v6 and recently i leaned back in the seat and it broke. it now moves forward and backward(almost like your reclining but it is the whole seat) the motor still works and the seat moves closer to the steering wheel to adjust for different drivers height. i hope i described the problem in enough detail and i was wondering if this could be fixed on my own or would it have to be taken somewhere. if it can be fixed without a mechanic it would be appreciated if you could explain how. if you need more information about the problem i will try to explain it better any help would be amazing thanks in advance

It sounds like you may have broken a mounting bracket. Look under the seat and see if the brackets that mount it to the floor are broken. If they are and you can weld you might be able to take it out and fix it. I had a front bracket break in my old jeep wrangler when I was out 4wheelin. I took had a friend that could weld and we took the seat out and cut a piece of metal that we could use to brace it, and welded it all together. Mine had broken off right at the weld. Another common thing I have seen is the bolts will pull out of the floorpanel. If that's true just weld a new piece in and drill it out to accept the bolts. Even if you can' weld, a welding shop wouldn't charge you much if you take the stuff apart and get it preped for them. Good luck.
