Subject:      can seat be made to recline further back?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

Is it possible to convince the passenger side front seat to recline further back than it seems to want to? (it only seems to go back about 15 or 20 degrees) Has anyone done this by cutting or hacking or whatever at their seat? I expect this question is a long shot, but then the experience of the list seems pretty far-ranging...

Anyway, I have an '84 vanagon, the seats are cloth & have folding arm rests but don't have the adjusters in the arm rests, they don't swivel, hope that's enough to ID this type of seat. I haven't looked inside it yet to see how the mechanics work. (My SO gets a little uncomfortable on road-trips, & I want so much for her & Moby to be friends... )
