Gas Seat Cylinder
Bob the Needy here again. While our magic carpet is getting its new panel, I've got the seats out. One of the front seats doesn't go down, it is stuck in the high position. When I looked at the cylinder, I saw the lever doesn't make full contact with the little valve stem. When I stuck a spacer in between, the valve compressed more, but not quite all the way. The seat didn't move. How do I troubleshoot this? Does the valve need to be depressed flush with the cylinder body or is the thing jammed?
