The drivers seat has stopped sliding forwards when we let the kids in the back
Is there something simple to check or is a trip back to dealer on the cards
No problems with passenger seat, that tilt and slides fine
Unless you have had a severe back injury and cannot bend over for long periods of time, I would attempt this fix myself.I have this problem but VW quoting over £200 to strip the seat down and change the broken cable. its not anywhere near a problem worth that much. I might ask a local VW non-dealer garage and see if they'll do it for any less
Is there an update please? I have the same problem and intend to remove the seat to see if there is anything I can do to repair it, probably just a new cable which I can make up. It looks pretty straightforward to get the seat out - unplug the electrical connections (I have heated seats) and undo four bolts.I have this problem but VW quoting over £200 to strip the seat down and change the broken cable. its not anywhere near a problem worth that much.

Thanks for sharing this guide,I know that this thread has been dormant a long time, but I recently experienced the same problem with the passenger seat in my wife's Eos. It was caused by a small broken clip. There is a great explanation on how to repair it at the following link:
Although the link refers to a Golf the process is exactly the same and the part number is also the same.
Hopefully this will help anyone experiencing the same issue.
