My '93 900T convertible came to me with a set of front seats from a later 9-3 SE/Viggen, as the factory originals suffered the dreaded "twist" problem I've read so much about on here. I tracked down a set of model-year correct, electric 900 seats and recovered them with seat covers from LSeat.com and am very happy with how they turned out. I bought them from a Saab enthusiast who knows the twisting issue well, and assured me (and I can see) that the power motor cables under the seats are in good order.

The seats are ready to go into the car, but before doing so I keep coming back to one niggling issue I found while putting the new seat covers on: the cable (really more like a cord) on the side of passenger the seat, connected to the manual "tilt-forward" lever, had snapped and was barely held in place with a mess of wires put in by a prior owner. The seatback still folds forward, it just goes all the way forward so that the bottom of the seatback rests slightly against the back of the seat cushion, instead of stopping 2/3 of the way down. The seat still clicks firmly in the upright position.

In the moment it seemed like a minor inconvenience, and seeing no obvious way to fix it, I went ahead and finished recovering the seat.

Now that I'm getting around to installing the recovered seats in the car, it dawned on me that that "catch" keeping the seat from falling all the way forward could also have some role in the power adjustment, and that I'm setting myself up for a newly twisted passenger seat.

My question is, is the manual tilt-forward catch independent of the seatback power tilt mechanism, where I shouldn't be concerned? I've put a lot of work into these seats so I'm hoping I'm just seeing ghosts!
